Local Music Stores

  • Music stores in this area are listed in alphabetical order below.  Some have repair shops, some sell books and supplies, some focus mainly on instrument sales and rentals.  Please call ahead to save a wasted trip. 

    JW Pepper focuses on selling sheet music and music books.  They do not rent instruments.  Their website is great for listening to the music that we perform in band.  Search for the titles we’re working on to find MP3 files that help us to learn musical concepts, such as tone, balance, timbre, and expression.

     

    Quinlan and Fabish Music Store can take orders over the phone and they can deliver to the schools.  They carry high quality products and they support our students with recommended instruments and supplies.

     

    When you shop for an instrument, please look for high quality instruments, not just bargain-basement prices.  Quality counts!  Cleaning and care kits are vital and contribute to the long-term health of the students and the instruments alike.  Cleaning & care kids also ensure playability of instruments and reduce the need for repairs.

     

    When shopping for “the book”:

    • First Year Band plays from Essential Elements for Band, Book One
    • Second Year Band plays from Essential Elements for Band, Book Two, but we don’t always need it immediately. 
    • Other books may be required depending on the needs and abilities of the kids.
    • Solo and Ensemble music is also available from most of these stores.

     

    If you are shopping for reeds for clarinet, sax, oboe, or bassoon,

    • You could choose natural (cane) reeds or plastic reeds.  Plastic reeds are more expensive initially, but they last longer, they don’t require water for soaking, and they end up being cheaper in the long run.  Some people find that they help to build embouchure control and strength because they don’t decay like cane reeds.  Some people prefer the tone from cane reeds.
    • In either case, please choose 2 ½ strength or “medium hard” reeds.
