City Music Leominster is Moving!

New home of City Music Leominster Sept. 2016
Coming this September:
City Music Leominster’s new home

After 10 years in our current Leominster location, City Music has outgrown our space.  Our music lesson studios are full – with a record attendance at our Spring Recital – and our inventory is stacked to the ceiling.

The new location, the former Newbury Comics store,  will offer a larger showroom and 7 spacious climate controlled music studios, PLUS an extra large ensemble room for group sessions, classes and jams.  We are especially  excited about the expanded music instruction opportunities our new home will allow.  Continue reading “City Music Leominster is Moving!”

A common question we get at City Music is: “Should my child start on an acoustic or an electric guitar? Shouldn’t he/she learn the basics on an acoustic, before starting electric?”

This is a valid question, and while we can’t say unequivocally ‘yes’ or ‘no’, we can give you pointers to help guide you.

Electric and acoustic guitars are essentially the same instrument: they both have six strings, they both are tuned to the same six notes. Beyond that, the electric/acoustic properties lend the two guitar types to different situations and different interests.  Continue reading “Your Child’s First Guitar: Acoustic vs. Electric?”

Teens enjoy sharing music –  it opens the doors for better cultural understanding and tolerance. Music instruction during youth is known to:

  • ~ Improve SAT score averages
  • ~ Boost creative skills valuable for work life success

Adults find playing an instrument – re-visiting the band instrument of their youth, or learning the instrument of their dreams – can be a great stress reliever.  Music lessons as an emotional outlet can reduce ‘job burnout’.

Seniors enjoy playing and sharing music with friends.  Music lessons can help avoid age-related memory loss, but can also help elders cope with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other similar diseases.
