Old Town School Music Store

Instrument Care and Feeding Workshop

Saturday, April 19th, 1:00 PM - FREE!
4544 North Lincoln Avenue

What strings should I use? Can I use polish on this? How often do I change my strings? What kind of case is right for me? I broke one of my strings what do I do? Pegwinders? Fingerboard conditioning? Straplocks? Humidifiers?

Old Town School Music Store employees will present a few hands-on demonstrations and have examples ready, so you can see exactly what it takes to keep your instrument in the best shape. This workshop is for beginning to intermediate players. Learn a little bit more about taking care of instruments you may already have or what owning a new instrument might entail. See you there!


The Music Store with a Non-Profit Mission

We are the Old Town School of Folk Music's friendly neighborhood full-service music store. We specialize in instruments and educational materials from all over the world, for students of all levels. Whether you are taking your first class, or are a regularly performing professional, we are committed to helping you find the tools you need to succeed.

Our knowledgeable staff can teach you about our incredible selection of traditional American and unique world instruments, all in a comfortable environment. We can help you navigate the (sometimes complex) world of strings, accessories, and instructional materials in order to make learning easier.

In addition, we offer rentals, repair service, and regular free workshops, to help keep you and your instrument in top condition. We always look forward to helping you figure out what will get you excited about playing and learning. Stop by either of our locations so we can help you get started, or get you to the next level.

Like it says above, we're a music store with a non-profit mission: The Old Town School Music Store is owned and operated by the Old Town School of Folk Music, and proceeds from the store help support the mission and programs of the Old Town School.

We really appreciate your continued support.

Check back regularly for info on sales, events and workshops.

Hope to see you soon!
