Without doubt, Joseph and Dan are two of the nicest blokes in the music industry. My son has been getting music lessons here for a while now, and if he ever needs anything, I'd rather buy from Take Note instead of saving a few quid on-line.

Our son recently started lessons with Joe at the shop. Really pleased at progress. Now doing Skype lessons and son loves them. Joe is a born teacher. Great lessons and such great value.

An excellent shop. Its a bit hidden away, behind the main high street but worth finding. I have purchased two cornets, both second hand. The first was a cheapy, which I used for about 18 months. When my playing improved, I was able to trade the cheapy and put it towards a professional instrument...
