Fazios Frets and Friends is well frequented by parents of students taking music at area grade and middle schools. They pretty much know the school requirements and can recommend what you need. They even have rental programs where you can rent instruments if you are not sure if your child will take to it. I had a good experience with them renting a violin. Got all my deposit back like I was suppose to after returning it. No surprises.
This is a very well run music store. They are used to renting a large amount of instruments to the school kids. They are very reasonably priced and the instruments always seem to be in very good condition. They also offer private and group lessons. They do have any other accessories you may need. Large Guitar selection for purchase!
Fazios truly is a top notch music store. They carry a wide range of brands and can get pretty much anything you ask for you. They are extremely competitive on their prices and can price match pretty much anything. The staff is knowledgeable and really gives the store a personal feel. They offer great lessons that anyone can learn from and they can even repair your instrument.
