CONVENIENT MUSIC RETAILERS FOR PARTS/SERVICE

Occasionally you need something for your music studies. This is NOT an all inclusive list but a list of some of the stores with which the Music Department does business unless indicated otherwise. We do not necessarily endorsed one company over the next. West Music, however, has a representative that calls on the department most Mondays and is convenient for instrument repairs and supply/music purchases. Please check with your instructor, the instrument checkout manager or Paul Nelson for advice and information regarding your particular situation. Remember, you do NOT have to use these businesses or services but they are there for you.

 

Some Businesses have internet links. Click on the logo to go to their link.

Others are simply directions/phone numbers.
