  The staff there are very friendly

The staff there are very friendly and help me and my wife out on what type of guitar our 9 year girl should be playing. They fixed her guitar for her because she wanted to play left handed instead of right, so the changed the strings and a few more things to it and she loves it. She is taking lessons there and the staff is so easy to talk to it like you are family.
  My parents are currently taking lessons

My parents are currently taking lessons at Gill's Music and they're both enjoying not only playing again (Dad plays guitar and Mom plays piano) but developing friendships with their instructors. They have nothing but good remarks to say about their music lessons.

For me, I just went into Gill's today to rent a trumpet, and I was in and out in all of 15 minutes. After doing a bit of price-researching and looking for the best rental deals down in the South Bay (where I reside), I discovered that Gill's rental offering was significantly better than most music stores. The rental agreement is also on a month-to-month basis, as opposed to other stores which ask you to commit to a 10-month rental.
