If you haven't been to the Carlsbad Village Music store in a while, you owe it to yourself to visit owner Janine Thomas and her team to see what is new and fun and exciting at one of the coolest places in downtown Carlsbad. 

You don't have to be musical to enjoy Carlsbad Village Music. But if you are, you know what a magical place it is. Surrounded by instruments of every kind, including ones you are familiar with like the guitar or violin, and also ones with a different flair like the ukulele and didgeridoo, you can't help but be inspired. With beautiful antiques smartly showcasing clothing, jewelry, and accessories, it is also a gift-givers paradise as you can always find something lovely or whimsical or meaningful.

Now back to the music. Carlsbad Village Music is the downtown resource for all things music. Janine's instructors teach it all: piano, violin, viola, guitar, banjo, mandolin, saxophone, clarinet, drums, harmonic, and more. They even teach voice and performing arts. With summer winding down, now is the time to book fall lessons as they fill up fast! And in order to be in the musical CVM Holiday Showcase, you need to be enrolled.

Carlsbad Village Music just wrapped their CVM Summer Showcase at Pine Avenue Park (pictures below) with 44 musical acts from their young students. Many of these students will go on to play an instrument at school as well and can rent directly from Carlsbad Village Music. So whether your young musician needs to rent a saxophone, violin, flute or clarinet, the team at Carlsbad Village Music can help.

Carlsbad Village Music is proud to be an exclusive distributor of Fender guitars, the musical instrument synonymous with all things rock n’ roll. An American icon, Fender was founded in Southern California over 70 years ago, and their electric, acoustic, and bass guitars are available right here in downtown Carlsbad. 

If you are not of the musical mind, no worries. Carlsbad Village Music has an incredible array of gift items in its Village Vibe retail section. Thoughtfully curated by Janine, with an eye for things that have special meaning, everything in her store is notable, such as the clothing, hand painted greeting cards and artwork from local artists, and more.

So whether you are looking for instrument repair services, or instrument rental, are interested in learning how to play an instrument (no matter your age), or have a young prodigy in the making, the team at Carlsbad Village Music are the perfect accompaniment. They are authentically Carlsbad Village!
