My journey to find the flute of my dreams took place in the City of Dearborn, Michigan where there is a great selection of musical instrument stores all within a ten mile radius. I invite all of you to jump on the music merry-go-round by learning to play a musical instrument and visiting the three stores in Dearborn. My journey was very eventful and successful and I found a wonderful flute for a fantastic deal.
The first stop was Anderson Music on Telegraph Road and the next stop was Hewitt’s Musical Instrument Co. on Michigan Avenue. Both of these stores have great reputations for catering to school children and providing instrument rentals and private lessons. Anderson Music has over 60 years experience and has a great website to assist you with your needs. They let you know, they stand behind their products. Hewitt’s Musical Instrument Co. was founded around 1920 and has four generations of experience. They call on over 150 schools per week to service the needs of students. They also offer payment programs, which is great, especially in these difficult economic times. Children need to be occupied by exploring their musical talents that many don’t realize they possess until they are motivated.
The third store is Wonderland Music that has been servicing customers for over 70 years. What I like the most about this store is that the sales staff tell stories of the many famous musicians from Motown and Rock that use to come in and browse and make purchases. Many of the customers were young teenagers at the time and not-so-famous, but eventually made it to the top. Even today, you can expect someone famous to just pop in. Wonderland Music does electronic repairs and provides equipment to the mega concerts in the metro area.
All three stores provide a wide variety of new and used instruments, great customer service and top notch knowledge. Give yourself plenty of time to browse the stores and websites or call to get answers to questions that fit your musical instrument needs. Being the amateur that I am, I appreciated the individual attention I received so that I could make a smart decision when purchasing my flute. In fact, I started out just looking for a basic flute, but I ended up buying a special edition Gemeinhardt at a great price.
Join in the fun of making music. Visit the musical instrument stores in Dearborn, Michigan and help make the world go round.
