The local musician's choice.

Gary Taylor

Owner

Gary was born and raised in Yakima and had always had a love of music,  and more specifically,  the guitar.  In his youth,  Gary played live music around the region,  and is still known to play for the right cause, but let's face it, he's a pretty busy man running the show.  Gary has spent 45 years managing in several faucets of retail sales, learning to appreciate his customers needs and has countless times turned a potential problem into a lifetime of trust. Gary is very proud of his staff and their ability to help you find the right answer to most any musical question, whether a question about a particular instrument choice or the right tool to get you over whatever musical hurdle lies ahead. Gary and his staff of experts are here to make playing and learning music a lifetime of fun, and make Taylor music the local musicians best friend.
