The Monterey Music Store
425 Alvarado St., Monterey (831) 372-5893
When it comes to local retailers, The Monterey Music Store rocks one of the greatest deals around: price matching on new equipment. If you find an ad for a brand-new piece of gear, you can show it to a salesperson and the price will be matched or beat (note: this offer may not apply to some merchandise.) The Monterey Music Store is your one-stop shop for sheet music (when you really need to learn that A-ha or Jon Bon Jovi favorite), guitars, drums, bass guitars, band instruments and private music lessons. Lessons are given for most musical instruments, including guitar, saxophone, violin and piano.
