“During the first COVID lockdown, my son had left his trombone at school.  I don’t drive, so the owner personally dropped one off at our house so he could keep up with his music class.  You would never get this kind of service from the box stores.”   Bilal M.

We are so fortunate to have these folks in our community. No matter what comes up, Musicare is always there for my students and me.

Excellent service received my flute back sooner than the estimated turn-around time, and it looks and plays like new.

David R.

Thanks for the great job on Selmer Alto sax, and taking the time to resolve the small flex in the body. Pads sealed well and instrument spoke well to serve the cause for the Montreal Symphony this week.

I trust these guys and travel from Montreal to have my sax checked out there. These guys always have the best service and the most friendly staff! Been going to them for everything from buying, selling, and repairing, and it is also a good source of info regarding the local music scene. I’ve been going there since 2007.

Kathy M.

Excellent service! Repaired/serviced my oboe within 24 hours for a very reasonable fee. Would highly recommend them. Well worth the drive!

Catheriine L.

Amazing customer service! Needed a replacement part for a Selmer clarinet and couldn’t find it anywhere in Montreal. Responded immediately, had the part, shipped it to me and all for a very reasonable price. Had it at my door 2 days after first inquiry. Used part is in mint condition and fits perfectly. Andrew was friendly and helpful. Thanks again for your help!
