Music Store / Music School
Acme House of Music (on MacArthur Blvd in Oakland)
A great place to buy instruments & other things musical (new or used), or take lessons, or just to hang out & talk music. Whether you’re a novice or a pro, the atmosphere is relaxed & welcoming. Plus the owners really give back to the community.
