  • I would recommend this business

I've been playing guitar for a long time, but felt I was stuck in a rut. Only three lessons later from Route 7 later and I can already notice a big difference in my playing. Not teaching to a particular style, Phil's helped to expand my fluency on the fretboard and my options of "stuff that works". I'm excited about my potential again and intend on sticking with the lessons.

Customer Testimonials

Very happy with the customer service and staff at Route 7 Music. They are a great bunch of guys, and our daughter has learned so much from Gary on drums. She loves the lessons, looks forward to them and actually likes practicing. Thanks for making learning an instrument a positive, fun experience!

This place is great. Their instructors are knowledgeable, funny. It's a warm, active place. My boyfriend has had guitar lessons with Phil (owner), and been taking singing lessons from Pat for years. His kids have been taking guitar and drum lessons from Phil and Gary for at least 10 years. I take singing lessons from Pat periodically.

The review by "A google user" that starts out "I called the store" and ends with "Go see East Coast Music' was likely written by an East Coast employee - note it was written FIVE years ago. And by the way, they went out of business.....while Route 7 has thrived.

I've been taking guitar lessons for years then a friend told me about Rt. 7 music...OMG!
I learned more in 5 lessons than I did in 2 years at the other place I was going to. The teachers there are fantastic!!!

This store and its staff are a huge asset to the local music scene.

Excellent guitar instruction with Dan Randi. His heart is in the right place and he knows how to teach. Every lesson I am more inspired and he gives me new hurdles to jump, consequently I make progress every week. Lots of nice used guitars for sale too

Our new-to-us favorite place! Awesome folks!!! Gary is the BEST! My son takes drum lessons with him.
