From Our Website

Some of our teachers are offering instruction on-line, and some are now offering in-store lessons. Please check our lessons page or the individual teacher pages for further information on this service. Celebrating over seven decades in business, Stanroy Music Center has relocated to 850 4th Street in Santa Rosa: a bigger, brighter location that easily includes the sales, repair, and teaching facilities Sonoma County has come to know and trust. The new building is nearly 5,000 square feet, offering a large sales floor for new and used instruments from entry-level to professional, generous racks of sheet music, rooms for private tutoring, and an instrument repair shop.

Stanroy Music Center first opened its doors in August 1947 at 622 4th street when the first owner, Stan Goldman, returned to his hometown of Santa Rosa after serving in various Army bands during WWII. From that original store, Stanroy had the spirit and desire to become the leading music store in the North Bay. In 1980 Tupper & Reed purchased the store from Stan and moved it to the 14,000 square foot location at 741 4th street. Since that time the store has continued to keep its commitment to the music community by offering rental instruments to school students, maintaining private teaching studios and having one of the largest instrument repair facilities in the state.

We have a great selection of drums from starter sets to pro level, and all the parts and accessories you'll need. We also carry drums in a variety of sizes and configurations for every drumming style, and for smaller players. We also have a great selection of hand drums like congas, bongos, djembes, doumbeks (darbukas), ashikos, and more, as well as and unique hand made percussion instruments from around the world. We carry a range of accessories for our drums and percussion, from sticks, mallets, drum heads, hardware, stands, and much more.

Stanroy is proud to stock student, intermediate, and professional level Brass and Woodwinds available for purchase or rent. And if we don't have it in stock, we are always happy special order what you need. We carry a range of accessories for our brass and woodwinds, including an excellent selection of swabs, brushes, oils, reeds, mouthpieces, and more. Are you interested in renting your instrument instead of buying, or maybe you're not sure? Visit our RENTALS page, or just come in and talk to us.

Stanroy Music has a generous selection of acoustic, resonator, flamenco, and electric guitars, basses, banjos, ukuleles and mandolins. The staff at Stanroy really knows their stuff, and are happy to help find the perfect instrument for you. Our acoustic guitars are stocked in sizes from fractional for smaller players, to parlor, dreadnought, jumbo, and many in between, and our electric guitars, basses, and banjos all come in fractional sizes as well. Come in, and we can help you choose the size that is best for you.
