A business in Montrose is busy making music, and after recent construction, the new music store is the only state-of-the-art music facility on the Western Slope.
Montrose Music opened its doors in July to those interested in renting instruments, but is about to expand and begin a whole new "Rock University” for the first time.
“We're not just selling stuff, we're making music,” said Ken Crombie, owner of Montrose Music. “We're not just a retail music store. We are basically trying to create music and create musicians.”
Crombie says he decided to open the music shop's doors to something new because they’re all about the music community.
“Other than the retail end of the business, we just recently renovated the building and built lesson studios,” said Krombie.
Montrose Music is now home to four new state-of-the-art studios for private lessons.
Crombie says he has hired the best musicians around to teach those classes; they are not only highly educated but experienced as well.
“We can get everyone from 5 years old to 98 years old playing any instrument and enjoying it fully,” said Jordan Carls, a teacher at Montrose Music.
“It’s a nice variation of a lot of students,” said Lane Anderson, a teacher at Montrose Music.
However, the music shop isn't stopping at just lessons. Down the road they plan on opening a state-of-the-art recording studio and become a one-stop music shop.
