About A Street Music

A Street Music existed as a storefront in Quincy, MA from 2010-2013, and was run by Aaron Belyea and Justin Stanley. We offered affordable music lessons, instrument instrument repairs, instrument rentals, and retail items. This blog was, until summer 2013, all about A Street Music’s education program, including our student and faculty concerts, outreach programs, summer camps, lessons, and scholarships. Unfortunately, Aaron and Justin had to close the storefront to focus on other musical endeavors. You can still find Aaron for musical instrument repairs on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/AStreetMusicMA. I can attest that Aaron is an incredible craftsman!
