About Presto Music – the music shop in Leamington Spa

Presto Music sign

Established in 1986, Presto Music has grown exponentially from its humble beginnings as a local music shop, into one of the UK’s foremost destinations for musical instruments, classical and jazz CDs and accessories.

Our staff are dedicated musicians and music lovers, with many of them maintaining professional careers as well as working for the business. Each member of staff in store is a specialist in their instrument, and can therefore provide the highest possible level of advice, knowledge and experience across all departments, from sheet music to CDs and of course, the instruments themselves. We also have two experienced repairers working in store, meaning we can offer a professional repair service for the majority of instruments.

Presto Music interiorIn store, we stock a wide range of instruments from strings to woodwind and pianos to guitars, all from beginner to semi-professional level. Our education room allows us to host a plethora of events from string groups to ukulele orchestras and our podcast room allows us to create unique content that reflects our eclectic online musical catalogue. We also understand the critical importance of music education and look to support our local music teachers by providing a practice room that allows educators to make use of the space and inspire the next generational of players.

You can visit us at Presto Music, 23-25 Regent Grove, Leamington Spa, CV32 4NN.
