Gear Music is both a brick and morter store located in the heart of Oakville, Ontario, Canada (part of the Greater Toronto Area) as well as an online music store that ships to basically anywhere in Canada.
Gear Music was established in 1996 to serve musicians with a knowledgeable and professional selection of products and services after owner Dave Goodyear saw the community's need for a better music experience.
Lessons have been a fundamental part of the store since it opened. Gear Music has had and continues to have many great instructors who provide their students with a strong understanding of, and hopefully a deeper level of connection to music. Gear always offers instructors who are adults with degrees or diplomas, or are recognized professionals in the industry. Gear also feels strongly that private one-on-one lessons are the best way to develop your fundamental skills in music.
Another integral part of looking after the musical community is that musical instruments and other equipment need to be serviced and repaired and with decades of experience Gear Music has built up a network of reliable technicians to get your equipment back in your hands and on stage in a timely and cost-effective manner. Gear has some of the best turnaround times in the country and most regular repairs are directly taken care of in-house.
Gear is very proud to have been selected as the exclusive dealer in Oakville for many prestigious brands including Fender, Gibson, Gretsch, Martin, and more.
Gear Music is committed to giving you the best level of service possible whether you are a rock star, a student, or just someone with some interest in music and with your help we hope to continue in this tradition for many decades to come!
