Reccommended by my daughter's piano teacher, Bertand's has been a great place for us to find music, instruments and lessons. At first we needed piano books, and they always had what we needed in stock, theory and lesson books for every level. Later, we rented an instrument for 5th grade band, but soon she found it too difficult to play and wanted to change her instrument. This would cost more, more paperwork, more hassle. Thankfully, the salesperson noticed our conversation and said the perfect things to inspire my daughter to practice more and stay with her current instrument! That night, she practiced for an hour and loves to play now. They have gone out of their way again and again to assist us. They offer free lessons for 6 weeks when you rent an instrument. It was well worth the investment. My daughter has more confidence in her playing and I will always go to Bertand's for our music needs.
