Since taking on a couple of Acoustic Guitars in December 2009, we have grown our musical department to be the largest in Central Otago. We are so privileged to live in an area with such an amazing amount of talent be it the humble home guitarist to the up and coming legends at the local schools to professional muso’s, Central Otago has them all. We listen to their requests and grow our business to provide all musicians with the toys (tools) they need to hone there craft or just simply make the good times even better.
The amazing comeback in popularity of the Ukulele has seen school kids everywhere picking up a Uke and on the back of this we have helped set up adult classes for the happy little instrument which have since seen a group form which might soon be Wanaka very own Uke Orchestra! Stay tuned on that one.
