after dealing with hundreds of local and touring musicians, i can honestly say that im always greatful for any ideas that may help me maintain a better level of appreciation for my craft and skill. Unfortunatly at times i do have unreasonable customers whos playing ability are far less than pro and expect that having me work on their guitar will immediatly make their playing great. This is rarely the case, and the real musicians who have me maintain their guitars will always stand up to hail my praises, despite any negative feedback i may, or may not deserve. Im always guarantee all my work and if a player is unhappy, i would wish they had the whevos to tell me to my face!
BEST PLACE TO TOOT YOUR OWN HORN Phoenix 2006 - Metro Music Center
It seems like people are content to buy their musical instruments with their groceries and electronics these days. With mega-stores now selling cheapie beginner packages for the Valley's dilettante musicians, indiscriminate shoppers spend their hard-earned cash for inferior product without thinking about warranties or a guarantee of service. For the rest of us who think it's important that the people selling the instruments actually know what they're talking about (or at the very least know the difference between a tenor and an alto sax), there's Metro Music Center, the longest-standing single location instrument store in Glendale. Metro services a diverse clientele ? everyone from the guitar-slinging emo kids to accordion-happy mariachis. A plus ? Metro Music features a staff of talented instructors who offer private lessons on every instrument from oboe and violin to guitar and piano ? let's see Costco try giving flute lessons!
