Even up to this day, it remains amazing, maybe even depressing just how few downtown music stores there are around or near you. It is depressing because you all love your music and if you are not already into the music business, you have a burning desire to play your own instrument. And because of the scarcity of what should be essential stores, the prices of the instruments, music sheets and all other paraphernalia seem to stay sky high.
Like a short, sharp blast on your golden trumpet, that was well and truly a blast from the past because today, the downtown music store boston business may be a tad too far and out of reach for some of you right now, and yet, it is so near to you. That’s right folks, strike a new chord because you’re going shopping online. Every conceivable thing about the music biz imaginable is available to you online.
And because the online shopping environment is so competitive the prices continue to drop. If they don’t drop, then at least there are more than a few special specials to look forward to every year. Paradise for the avid and aspirant musician. And to address the musical aspirant, learning how to play a new instrument has never been this easy. Whether you are going to be in the store or remote online, you can now be taught more than a thing or two.
Not only do the music stores help you out with new or secondhand instruments, they even have staff who, knowledgeable and seasonal as they are, can give you lessons too. Go online and you’ll see the studio and teaching environment for yourself, a demonstration or two to get you in the mood.
