Some Things Have Changed!

On July 1, 2014, Salisbury Music & Instrument Repair closed it’s retail location at 925 Eastern Shore Drive. There were many reasons, but the primary reason was that I wasn’t  generating enough revenue to keep a “retail” location open.


I am still in business and doing about 80% of what I did before.

I moved my repair shop into the garage of my house, and am still doing band and orchestra instrument repairs.

Drop Off Option 1
The Guitar Man Music Store
1013 S. Salisbury Blvd.
Salisbury, MD 21804
(Next to Burger King just north of Salisbury Music)
Mon-Sat 10a-6p
(I’m stopping by every couple of days)

Drop Off Option 2
Seaford Music
22876 Sussex Highway(Rt. 13)
Seaford, DE
Mon-Thu: 10a – 6p
Fri: 10 – 8p
Sat: 10a – 5p
(I stop by every Tuesday during the school year, as needed during the summer)

School Option 3
If your child goes to school in Wicomico, Worcester, Somerset, Dorchester, or Talbot County, I visit most of the schools once a week during the school year. Call me at 410-543-1200 and we can discuss the details.

Yes, I’m still doing band and instrument rentals. Clicking the On-Line Rental Button on my home page is the easiest way. Call me at 410-543-1200 for some other options.

Piano Stuff
Yes, I’m still tuning, repairing, moving and renting pianos.
