At age 61 I decided it was time to satisfy my dream of learning the guitar. I went into Murphy's Music where I rented instruments for my children for many... read more years for school orchestra. I also had an heirloom violin that is probably over 100 years old passed down to me from my great uncle - Bob Murphy restored it and did a gradation on the soundboard which made it sound better than it ever did!
Jeff listened to my goals and hooked me up with an excellent teacher - Jon. I worked with Jon for about one year, but there were too many scheduling issues on my end as I am a surgeon and Jon was only available on my surgery days. I switched to Dennis who is incredible! I am not a natural by any means, but with Dennis I am making awesome progress and having a blast at the same time!
All the staff are highly knowledgeable and the store is well stocked with all the right equipment and supplies.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND MURPHYS'S MUSIC!!

Extremely friendly staff, i’m pretty the owner was the one who helped me, not 100% sure. He was super kind gave me a lot of information on my guitar and... read more even fixed it for free, it was just a string that broke off and some fret buzz but it was still really kind for him to do that. The inside is really nice too, it’s a nice environment feels very welcoming.

I just went into Murphey’s with a brand new Jaguar Bass I purchased online and brought in for a set up. Tim took a look and started fixing it... read more up as soon as he had it in his hands, a tweak here and there, checked all the gizmos and gadgets, giving me some feedback on what he was doing. It was actually quite amazing seeing the efficiency and knowledge he had on such a quick turnaround. Impressed and sold on Murphey’s for all my bass needs! Thanks Tim!

Excellent standalone musical instrument store. Was introduced to this by my son’s violin teacher, when looking for a better violin for him to practice on. Murphy’s rental program is superb... read more - the violin we got for him is better than what we would have bought, came with a case, and Murphy’s takes care of the maintenance whenever we need to get something fixed. Half of the monthly rental payment also goes into a “bank” that we can use as credit if we decide to purchase a different instrument from them later.
My son has gone through 2 years of violin NYSSMA tests so far, and is preparing for his third. We generally get the strings replaced here a few months before each NYSSMA season. The repair personnel downstairs are super friendly, knowledgeable, and skilled at what they do - not just on fixing up instruments but also actionable advise on how to care for the instruments and how to improve your skills.
