Back to School Intruments

Although the new school year is still a few weeks off, it’s not too

early to start considering instruments for band class.

We have many previously owned instruments for sale. Click here to

complete inspections and repairs done by our technicians prior to

going on the sales floor.

Clavinova - Cafe


 Interested in CVP Clavinovas? Not sure if a digital piano is the right call?

Stop in and let us show you the powerful  capability of these instruments. From their stereo and concert grand piano sound sampling to their use with iPads and Yamaha apps, you will see the potential that these Clavinovas have; from the absolute beginner to the seasoned player, there is something for everyone.

On Thursdays at 6:30pm. Have a cup of coffee or hot chocolate as we explore these amazing instruments!
