What a nice place to discover just south of Huntington in the heart of downtown; music instrument lessons by day and fun weekly Friday night concerts by a nice mix of talented local musicians and sometimes their students. And the Friday night admission includes all-you-can-eat desserts and drinks.
Owner Carolyn Iga deserves your support for this nice new shop.
