Here's what people are saying about us:

Thank you so much for fixing my student’s flute yesterday. I really didn’t expect an on-the-spot repair, and apologies for even mentioning the possibility. As I stood there, it became clear it me that you had a very full plate of responsibility yesterday afternoon. Most people would not have been able to extend the time and attention you provided me with absolutely no notice. I just wanted to let you know that I deeply appreciate this. - Richard Wyton, Band Director, Cider Mill School Wilton, CT

“I have found Bethel Music to be tops in repairs and service. I have worked with them for over 14 years. Great service and quality equipment.” - Tom Miner, Band Director

“For many years our New Fairfield instrumental students have enjoyed the fair prices, good instrument advice, in-house quality repairs and full pick-up & delivery service that Bethel Music Center provides. I especially like the Buy-Back program!” - Diane King, Band Director, New Fairfield CT
