About Us

Our belief

About Music Gallery & Academy

At Music Gallery & Academy we believe nothing compares to the live sound of a piano, guitar, violin or other musical instrument.

We are not just saying that because we are a music store. In our busy modern lives, most of us are acquainted with music through CDs, MP3s, Computers, iPods, etc. As such, many of us have, in certain ways, lost our experience of live music, especially at home.

Playing music at home is considered to be one of the most powerful means of getting family members and friends together more often, to get children more involved in useful activities and, last but not least, help kids improve their cognitive and social abilities.

Acoustic Pianos at Music Gallery

It’s difficult to describe or measure exactly what music at home can do, but it certainly is a source of enjoyment and relaxation – a form of play.

It brings art into the home. It brings people together. And there’s a vast difference between listening to a concerto, a folk song, or a violin solo on your iPod and playing on an actual piano, accompanying you singing with your own acoustic guitar, or practicing a new piece on your violin. In today’s society, we are more likely to move towards “cool” electronics.

Playing with electronic gadgets can certainly be considered a talent and one might argue that it can increase cognitive abilities, but it does not bring people together. At Music Gallery, our main goal as a music store is to help our society, starting with the local North Vancouver community, become more involved in playing and listening to live music.

Customer voice


Our customers satisfaction is our first priority.
These wonderful reviews from our esteemed customers make us pride ourselves on our business.


I personally think this is the best music store in all of Vancouver. I purchased a La Patrie Classical guitar and currently taking lessons at the Music Gallery. The staff are very welcoming, and helpful. You can try out any of the instrument that you want, and see how they sound and feel. And if you're just starting off, the staff will gladly help you find the exact thing you're looking for. The lessons here are very good. I've been taking art, and flamenco guitar classes for a while, and I really like it! I seriously recommend any music, or art lovers to come and check this store out.

I bought a violin from Vancouver Music Gallery a few days ago and I must say I am satisfied with my purchase very much. The staff and especially the owner, Mike, are very considerate and it seems they truly like to help the costumers to choose the best-suited option. They guarantee the lowest price and will keep their promise and match their price in case you find another dealer who suggests a lower price.

We bought my son's first piano here. Valentine's Day gifts and fate have also prompted us to officially enter the music hall. Thank Regina for her warm reception and extremely detailed introduction, which helped us make cost-effective comparisons skillfully without knowing. She is professional and patient. We’re very happy to have such an exquisite and professional musical instrument store in our West Vancouver community. Hope this place will get better and better, and can be more musical instruments and equipment agents to accompany us in the coming decades.

The staff are very friendly and helpful when I have any questions. Bought a ukulele here, really happy with the quality of the instrument, and definitely worth it. They also have a good selection of music books to choose from.
The instrument shop is not very big but very nice and professional! My daughter wanted a violin. Charlie is so kind, patient, and friendly. He helped my daughter to find her favourite one. It was an excellent shopping experience about violin. We like Charlie and the shop pretty much! Picture is the antique piano in the shop.

A review long overdue... I have been a customer for almost 15 years now at Music Gallery. Bought my guitar and piano here. They have provided great service all long. Fast, reliable and above all honest crew. Patience is a virtue at Music Gallery!! Always willing to help and reliable. I have referred many of my students here to purchase their instruments and will continue to do so as they have proven to be reliable, competitive and honest through the test of time!
