This is a great local music store, where the owner, Jeff, really knows his stuff. Great place to buy or try guitars, or to take lessons. Excellent teachers. New location on Northwest Hwy. even better. Highly recommended.

From Our Website

Consolidated Music of Barrington, Inc. is a music shop located in downtown Barrington, IL, a Northwest suburb of Chicago. We specialize in private music lessons, group music classes, instrument sales, rentals and repairs of all kinds. We are proud to celebrate over 40 years of making and serving musicians!

Consolidated Music opened its doors in 1974 with one drum set and 10 guitars on the wall. Most of our customers wanted to be the next Jimmy Page or Eric Clapton. In the 80's, we catered to synth players and shredders. We survived the throb of disco. The 90's challenged us with Grunge bands and the unplugged phenomenon. The year 2000 brought us alternative and American Idol hopefuls. Through it all, we have enjoyed every single day. People want to make music and we are committed to helping them to do so by offering great products, lessons and rentals.

Consolidated Music provides qualified, professional instruction in an atmosphere that fosters a love of music. Since 1974, students from all over Barrington, Palatine, Fox River Grove and Lake Zurich, have taken music lessons at our store. Some families have stuck around for three generations of students! It doesn't matter if you are 6 or 60: music education is good for the soul. Lessons are custom tailored for the individual, taking into consideration musical preferences, age, and ability.

Concert Ukulele: Our best selling model in the Kala line of ukes. This instrument features a slightly longer scale length and fret spacing while retaining the same tuning as a soprano uke ( GCEA). These features help make the concert size ukulele perfect for those who find the soprano's short neck too tight for their hands. The concert is still relatively small and therefore packs easy for travel and provides classic uke tone! Tenor Ukulele: The largest ukulele in the classically tuned uke family.
