Remember that First Guitar


"This is my go-to music store. My two kids have taken guitar lessons here, and both loved it...I would give them six stars if I could."

"Just used JAMS Music to repair my daughter's flute. Ian, the brass & woodwind repair tech is excellent. He knows what he's doing and is very ethical. I won't hesitate to bring my future business back there!"
