If you have ever been to Bermuda, you will surely have noticed that music has a special place in our hearts and our culture.
From the Gombey dancers parading in the streets at any opportunity to the few music festivals organised on the island, the live bands entertaining countless punters in pubs and restaurants at the week-end and the many endless nights spent dancing, music is never far away in Bermuda.
For all those who like music, the most important place is the music store where they can buy the last CD of their favourite artist, local or international, as well as their instruments and accessories, music books, music sheets and anything remotely linked with music. Of course, there are loads of these places in Bermuda and the best one is The Music Box. The store located in Reid Street, in Hamilton was voted top of the category music store at the Best of Bermuda Awards 2011 organised by The Bermudian.
Not only The Music Box took the award, but it realised the tour de force of sticking it to the winner of the category for the last three years, Music World. The independent store is the place where you have to go if you are a fan of music, whether you are a listener or a musician. The shop is absolutely crammed with items related to music, from stereos and other electronic equipment to CDs, books and instruments.
The Music Box is one of the oldest and finest music stores in Bermuda and has any type of music you could ask for, local and international. Whether you are looking for some oldies like Byron Lee or the last album Rihanna, or the complete collection of local reggae singer Mishka or Bermuda legendary group Talbot Brothers, you will find it at The Music Box. If you were unlucky enough not to find it, the staff will happily order it for you and you should get it within a week. Furthermore, with new arrivals every Thursday, you have an excuse to go and check regularly the stocks at The Music Box.
Because music is not just about listening to other’s stuff but also playing and creating your own music, The Music Box would not be the best music shop in Bermuda without selling instruments. You can find here most of the instruments you need for your band or your solo acts, such as keyboards and guitars of course, but also saxophones, ukuleles, mandolins, trumpets and melodicas. There are also all the accessories you would need for these instruments like cases and strings, capos and reeds, valve oil, or rosin.
Before playing an instrument you might need to learn how to play it and The Music Box has music lesson books for every levels and ages, from beginners to masters, from kids to adults. You will also need some music sheets to learn and play your favourite songs and there are loads available at The Music Box. The store has books from Faber, RCM, Mel Bay, Vamoosh, John Tompson, ABRSM and Suzuki, as well as manuscript books to please everyone.
This is so much more than a simple music store and you can find everything related to music:
Microphones with stands and cables, headphones, drum skins, blank CDs and DVDs, storage cases, batteries, A/C adaptors, even majorette baton sticks.
