Mr Music was opened in Framingham MA in the '60s by Mickey Magnante, world-famous accordionist. The store relocated to Fort Myers in 1971, with the start of its first location downtown in the Patio De Leon. Mickey's son David took over the company in 1984 after he attended Boston College. David runs a hands-on business. You can still find him in the shop most every day.

Mr. Music stands out as Lee County's oldest music shop, specializing in individualized service for each client . This is also one of the few shops in the country where folks can find accordions, both piano style and diatonic. David's great uncle, Mr. Charles Magnante was, and still is popular as the world's best accordionist! David is an expert player in his own rite. He also repairs accordions and provides one-to-one instruction.

Whether you are searching for a band instrument, guitar, drum set, violin, printed music, supplies, repairs, lessons or related accessories, Mr. Music has it all.

"We have always been a leader in the community when it comes to private music lessons and great service," says David Magnante. "Give us a try. You'll be glad you did!"

We are honored to have many satisfied customers we've been able to serve over the years.

This is a wonderful music shop with a down home feel. There is an amazing selection of instruments and books, and the people working there will treat you well so you'll want to come back. I took my wife there to sign up for singing lessons and she just loves her teacher and everyone there.

Our daughter has taken piano lessons with Monica for the last 2 1/2 years. Monica goes out of her way to provide our daughter with the music she likes so that she continues to take an interest and love playing! David, Bob and even the substitute instructors have always been outstanding, helpful, and very professional. They make learning fun and my daughter looks forward to her lessons and practicing! We have also used the piano tuner they recommended and we couldn't be more pleased! They are an incredible asset to our community and we are very lucky to have them in Fort Myers!

Everyone at Mr Music has been extremely professional. I have 3 boys all of them take lessons for various brass instruments. Evan has been extremely understanding and kind. His knowledge and instruction is just what my boys need. Bob is friendly and very helpful if we need sheet music, reeds, or help tweeting our schedule. I would and do recommend Mr Music for music and music lesson needs.

We were new customers of Mr. Music at the beginning of 2012. We signed our 2 children up for guitar lessons. When we signed our daughter up for guitar lessons for the upcoming weekend, Bob called the house and cell phones multiple times (borderline harassing) to pay the monthly tuition fee before services were even done or started. They are just money hungry! At first Dave and Bob seemed to be nice people and we thought the both of them were out to help us newbies. We bought 2 guitars and 1 guitar petal from Bob. In the beginning we thought Dave and Bob were giving us a good price for the equipment because we really did not know anything about guitars. As it turns out they really did a snow job on us. First, when we brought the guitar petal and went home to try it, long story short it sounded like garbage. We tried to ask Bob and Dave if we can return the petal after less than an hour of use and use the money for guitar lessons instead. Bob and Dave told us NO. We dont do returns Bob stated. OK, so they burned us on the petal. Now we found out Mr. Music also ripped us off on the price for the 2 guitars as well. They sold us two guitars that were double the going price. Be very careful when dealing with this guy. Mr. Music will rip you off if you do not know anything about guitars. We will never go back to them! Do not go to this place!

Customer Testimonials

have been doing business with Mr. Music for many years. I have purchased several guitars both acoustic and electric as well numerous musical items in the store and used them for a repair on a guitar I damaged. I even bought a guitar from Dave�s dad many, many years ago. I have come to personally know the owner of Mr. Music (David Magnate) from my years of doing business with him. Each time I have purchased something or just stopped in for advice, Dave and his staff have always been happy to meet my needs or just answer questions I had at the time. I have always received that personal service that is all too often missing with the big chain store employees.

I think Mr. Music has a great inventory and on occasion when they did not have what I wanted, they were all too happy to order it for me. I have been so impressed with them that I now have my grandson going there for his guitar lessons and he loves it! Certainly seems like he is learning music and he loves his instructor. I don't know about you, but I personally like doing business with locally owned stores of any kind: you know, the stores where you feel like your business really is important and you are not just another customer who's business doesn't matter to them. I highly recommend you visit Mr. Music for your next musical purchase. It certainly seems to be a family friendly store and I know you will not be disappointed.


I found Mr. Music taking pride in offering a comfortable and inviting atmosphere, while maintaining a very large level of professionalism. They have provided my family and me with excellent service and have extended every possible courtesy.


I have been taking guitar and drum lessons at Mr. Music since I have moved to the Fort Myers area. My lessons at Mr. Music have increased my skill level significantly. My instructors are great at their instruments, and genuinely take pride in the progress of their students. The atmosphere is extremely friendly, and welcoming to students at any skill level. The best part of the lessons here - they are fun! I always look forward to coming here each week.

I highly recommend Mr. Music if you want to start playing an instrument, or want to improve on one that you already play.


I’ve lived in Ft. Myers my entire life and just found Mr.Music a little over a month ago. I am happy to say that they tuned and fixed a string on my autoharp on the same day I brought it in. Very reasonable prices and the owner is super nice.


My girls love their teacher! Thanks for provided a great service.
