In addition to being fun, music lessons are a terrific way to help your child improve his or her performance in school. Research shows that children who take music lessons for just one year improve their test scores by an average of 20%. What other after school activity has that kind of direct impact on school performance?
At Creative Music Center, we also rent instruments! We believe quality, name brand musical instruments are the key to success for beginner band and orchestra students. That's why we carry only the best, from Yamaha woodwinds and Yamaha brass to the Conn Selmer family of instruments, as well as Jupiter, Gemeinhardt flutes and Buffet clarinets. Our string instruments - violins, violas and cellos - are also from top manufacturers, including Yamaha and Eastman, among others. Our strings are always in tune and ready to play!
Even better, our rental prices are reasonable, starting at just $20 per month, and school delivery is always convenient and free! Each and every rental payment (excluding tax and insurance) goes towards the purchase of your school rental instrument, or can be used towards the purchase of a new intermediate or professional horn!
At our music store, which services school music programs all over the state of Connecticut, you will find a vast selection of competitively priced student and professional horns. We carry the popular Bach Stradivarius trumpet, the Yamaha Xeno trumpet, the Selmer alto sax, the Buffet R-13 clarinet, and more. And, with only a credit card deposit, we allow all of our intermediate and professional instruments to be play-tested in the comfort of your home or tested by your private music instructor before purchasing it. In fact, we encourage customers to try several different horns both in the music store and at home, prior to making a final decision. Buying a musical instrument is an extremely personal decision, and our job is to help you make the right decision for you by allowing you every opportunity to play the instrument in different environments.
Can't get to the store? We're online, too! Yes, every musical instrument and accessory inside the store is available in our online music store as well. Shopping online is always easy and convenient. However, if you need help deciding which instrument or accessory to buy, our courteous and knowledgeable sales staff is always ready to help during regular business hours. We work with all the area schools and music teachers so we know what your child needs for his or her school music program. In addition, we've helped literally hundreds of children become successful musicians with our quality instruments and private lesson program. Whether you or your child takes private piano lessons, guitar lessons or tuba lessons, our goal is to help you develop a passion for music that will last a lifetime.
At Creative Music Center, we love making musicians! Our goal is to put an instrument in the hands of every man, woman and child in the world. We strive to make music an integral part of every person's life. Come visit us! Everyone here at Creative Music Center is a musician, too, and there's nothing we like better than meeting and talking with other musicians, supporting parents of young musicians, and encouraging new band students. We think our passion for music is contagious! So, stop into the store or give us a call and become a part of our musical community!
