Village Music Wellington, an independent, full-service music store, opened its doors to Wellington and the surrounding communities on Nov. 1.
Located in Wellington Green Square, between the Fresh Market and Joey’s Outback Adventures, Village Music’s offerings include a comprehensive lesson program as well as a full line of musical merchandise including instruments and accessories.
As Wellington residents, owners Steve and Donna Willey intend to support the music programs in Wellington schools through the provision of band instruments and lessons, and to develop a deep involvement in the Wellington community through cooperative programs with fellow businesses.
“In a town with such a high population of young families, we look forward to the opportunity to support the musical education of the local children and hopefully to spread our love for music throughout this community,” Steve said.
Village Music will offer individual lessons, group lessons and music camps. Having owned a music store in Massachusetts for more than 10 years, as well as having 30 years of experience as a performer, Steve is no newcomer to the music business. With nearly 2,000 square feet of retail store space and lesson rooms and an expansive inventory, he hopes to create an inviting, family-oriented musical experience for his customers. The Willeys are both musicians; Steve is a recorded singer/songwriter and guitarist and Donna has a degree in piano from the New England Conservatory of Music. They are teaching their respective instruments and employ a staff of qualified instructors for all other instruments.
Village Music is equipped with an array of the latest products for musicians, including guitars, basses, keyboards, amplifiers, P.A. gear, drums and percussion instruments, accessories, lesson books and more. The store also offers spacious soundproof rooms for lessons. Steve emphasizes that Village Music offers competitive pricing and personal service.
“At Village Music, we’re all about the community, what customers want and working together to musically inspire people,” Donna said. “We want to offer a place where customers can turn for support and peace of mind, which you don’t get when purchasing online.”
Village Music Wellington is open from 10:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
