As you might be aware, there are massive problems with USPS deliveries which in turn has affected small businesses, including ours. Many of you are still waiting on packages we sent out just after Thanksgiving. We thank you for your understanding and patience. We extend support and only good wishes to all the postal workers who are trying their very best in a super tough situation.
Store hours during the holidays are:
Closed 12/25 through 12/28 reopening Tues 12/29, Wed 12/30, and Thurs 12/31 10-4.
Closed 1/1/2021 through 1/4/21 reopening Tues 1/5/21 – looking forward to a good New Year!
May your holidays be full of music. On a personal note, George and I are very thankful for your support through this unique and challenging year. We think our store is an important part of the musical community but without your support we cannot exist. And because COVID has prevented so many from venturing into the shop to browse and now with USPS delays, we need and appreciate you more than ever. Thank you.

The well-respected German publisher, Baerenreiter Verlag, has been slowly but surely publishing each of Beethoven’s piano sonatas throughout the last year(s) as singles but now they have released all of these in 3 beautiful volumes carefully edited by Jonathan Del Mar who has edited all 9 Beethoven Symphonies for Baerenreiter along with all the concertos, piano sonatas, the cello sonatas and variations, and string quartets. Needless to say, he is a Beethoven expert and scholar second to none. These new volumes of the piano sonatas challenge the other editions such as Henle Verlag, Wiener Urtext, ABRSM, and others. Here is what professional pianists are saying https://www.baerenreiter.com/en/focus/beethoven-2020/piano-music/pianists-on-jonathan-del-mars-edition/

From time-to-time we have customers who want to sell their instruments for various reasons but mostly because the student has graduated or moved on to other things. Instead of letting the instruments waste away in their attics they smartly sell them and you benefit from the fair prices offered. Though we do not claim to be experts we are honest and the sellers we work with are good people. So if you are tired of gambling on Craig’s List or Ebay then give us a call to see what we have. In stock right now:
