Music Shops in Portsmouth

Music Shops in Portsmouth

To a musician there are few things more useful than a well-stocked and well-priced music shop. Whether you are a guitarist, drummer or singer, having the right kit is paramount to your ability to rehearse and perform. Having someone who is knowledgeable about what kit is right for you, and who can help you make the right choices within your budget is the next most important thing. Here at Singing Lessons Portsmouth we have seen the best and we have seen the worst, so we want to help you to avoid making some of the same mistakes we did. Here is a run-down of our favourite music shops in Portsmouth - we would recommend you start here if you are new to the game:

Musicroom is a nationally recognised brand that will be familiar to most musicians - there is one in pretty much every town. Whilst not always the cheapest, you can depend on them to have a good range of different kit at different price ranges, as well as friendly and helpful staff. Portsmouth Musicroom is located 93-95 Commercial Road, PO1 1BQ, and so should be easily accessible for anyone living in Portsmouth. All in all a good place to start.

Nevada Music is an independent music store here in Portsmouth, stocking everything including guitars, basses, drums, microphones and PA/lighting gear (i.e. everything). Their diverse and highly specialised team will ensure that you walk out of there with exactly what you need - no more and no less. This really is a store that you could take the whole band to, although you would probably never get them out again. Nevada Music's large and accessible showroom is located at Unit 12, Fitzherbert Spur, Portsmouth PO6 1TT.

Courtney and Walker is the go-to store for traditional instrumentalists. They stock a huge variety of instruments and equipment, from violins to trumpets and even digital pianos. Whilst not a shop for singers as such we know that many of you clever people play a range of instruments, so we thought that you should know about it. Courtney and Walker's showroom can be found at 52 Morelands Road, Waterlooville, PO7 5PS.

Guitar Sound is a must for any guitarists or singer-songwriters out there. Their huge selection of guitars, amplifiers and effects will leave your head spinning. A great feature of their service is their price-match guarantee - so you get internet prices plus the security of an established store. Located at 1-2 St Pancras, Chichester PO19 7SJ, Guitar Sound is a little further out than the other stores on this page. If you can travel, however, we would certainly recommend  a visit.

Those are our personal favourites, but if you do find any other great music shops in and around Portsmouth then we would love to hear it. Just get in touch using the details at the top of this page. Remember, a music shop's job is to help you to make some important decisions, not just to take your money; so if you feel under pressure to make a certain purchase then we would advise walking straight out of there and going somewhere you trust. Whether you learn to sing with us or not we hope you find this page useful.
