I had the fortune of working with Randall with the repair work for my Takamine Acoustic Guitar. I had some pretty serious bridge and saddle issues. Randall was very clear with describing to me what needed to be done to get my guitar back up to speed. He was very courteous, informative and professional with the way he conducted himself! I am very happy with the results so far but I think as I continue to work with my newly repaired guitar I will find that he did a great job. Again, the service I received was exceptional. Thanks Randall and he even had a mask on for each of my visits!

Robert repaired my Martin acoustic guitar and did an excellent job. It had several cracks on the front and one on the back and he reset the bridge. All of this was due to my failure to keep it hydrated. I highly recommend him for quality repair on high end guitars.

Wanted to say thanks to Jeff and the crew for always great and professional service. If you need a guitar fixed you don't need to take it any place else.

We rent a violin for our son here and have come in several times for other supplies and tune ups on our guitar. Everyone we have worked with have been super knowledgeable and they don't talk down to me for not being a non-musical noob. I really do appreciate that. The only reason I wouldn't give them 5 stars is because they regularly have issues with their check-out system. The credit card machine goes down, takes forever... Kinda a pain in the butt. But overall, typically a great experience.

Buchanan Music is one of the Valley's most trusted repair shops for over 35 years. We have the experience, the expertise, and the professional courtesy you want. Our business was founded on guitar repair when Robert Buchanan started Buchanan Guitars back in 1976. Today, our repair shop is one of the best and well respected in the entire Valley. We service both guitar and bass as well as other fretted instruments like banjos and mandolins. Our service department also repairs all Band and Orchestra instruments.


Piano and keyboard lessons are some of the most popular lessons offered by Buchanan Music. As such, we have instructors who specialize in many styles and techniques to meet the needs of our students. If you or someone you know is interested in piano, keyboard, synthesizer, or organ lessons, call us at 480-461-9161 or send us an email for availability and pricing. One of the most popular instruments to learn in the World, the piano is one of the most recognizable instruments in history. Some of the World's greatest masterpieces in music were written on the piano or an earlier incarnation like a harpsichord.


Bass, one of the most essential elements of the Rhythm Section, is the driving force behind all music. Coupled with a drummer or percussionist, it's the Bass that provides the tonal elements of the music. Whether in orchestral or a rock and roll scenario, Bass is as important in both. For rock music, it's the "pocket" that both the drummer and bassist create in which all of the other music revolves around. Lyle is a state certified music teacher with a masters degree in music and over a decade of teaching experience.
