Praise for The Music Room

  • My daughter took lessons at The Music Room for years. She tried a number of instruments over the years; violin, piano, and bass guitar. The Music Room’s team was unfailingly responsive and flexible whenever my daughter wanted to change instruments. I highly recommend The Music Room for rental and lessons. I felt like they really cared and they made working with them easy. Carol, Carley, and everyone else we interacted with was great. The Music Room taught my daughter a love of music without pressure or fuss.

  • A great hometown music store!!! Not only do they have a wonderful selection of guitars, and amplifiers, but they also have orchestral instruments, sheet music, and lessons, all of which at very reasonable prices. The lessons there are friendly and helpful, not to mention fun. All together, I give this place an enthusiastic two thumbs up!

    Joel Roberts

  • Great place for an enthusiast, aspiring musicians, beginners or even just explorers. They offer variety of instruments and materials as well as personal lessons. They don’t have a huge selection of instruments as some of the competition but their staff makes up for that being very friendly and informative. Definitely recommend the place.

  • Our youth have often struggled with more traditional forms of communication; at Lutherbrook we have found that the expressive therapies are invaluable in helping youth give voice to their experiences. We appreciate The Music Room’s generosity in helping us to expand these opportunities.

    Brent Diers

  • The Music Room is a mandatory store to shop if you are looking for great music lessons and good selection of instruments (rentals too!). Being a long time customer, I can say that TMR has been essential to the musical education of my kids (drums and piano). The staff and teachers are extremely knowledgeable and polite, and the atmosphere is hip and fun.This year I finally mustered the courage to start voice lessons, and now I am experiencing the “why did I take so long to do this” syndrome.

    Highly recommend!
