  • “I just have to say that we absolutely love your store/cafe/school. Leah especially. She’d go there everyday if she could! But for now, 3 days a week should do :). We are so happy to have found you. Such a family atmosphere and you can feel how much you care about the students and performers. It means a lot.”

  • “Nesto was very patient and honest with his recommendations to make my guitar easier to play. The changes have made a world of difference in the speed of my chord changes and my ability to play without pain. As an older “absolute” beginner guitar player, I found all the staff to be kind and encouraging. I look forward to checking out the Thursday night open mike.”

  • “I can’t thank you guys enough for encouraging Mia and creating an environment that instills a sense of community for everyone associated with your store and for the love of music. Rick, Robin, Chris and all your instructors are 10-star people in a 5-star world. Really.”

  • “Had a great experience on our first visit to Rick’s Music World. My daughter, Ali and I, were greeted with a smile and exceptional customer service from Rick & Chris. We weren’t pressured at all, we were allowed to sit and play several different guitar models. We left with Ali’s new Washburn D25! It’s a beautiful guitar for a great price, and she absolutely loves it. We drove close to an hour to get to the store to check out the selection of Washburn’s (my personal favorite). It was nice to be greeted with a smile and to be treated as though we were important to them. It was well worth the drive. Thanks again to Rick and Chris! We will definitely be back.”

  • “My son, Danny, has been taking guitar lessons with Mark Carvalho for nine years. Dan is a huge Beatles fan and has been since he was little. He has learned so much from Mark in terms of his development as a musician. Because of Mark’s guidance, encouragement and support, his skills and confidence have grown so much! Rick, Robin, Mark and the other staff have been wonderful to him. We have all become good friends. It is like his second home! Danny has participated in Open Mikes, Jam Camps and other fun things. I could go on and on! I am so grateful for Rick’s.”

  • “Ricks is the most unique place for music hands down. Where else can you learn to play, buy name brand instruments and accessories at the best prices and hear live local music? And also service with a smile :)”
