I buy music frequently, and Ackerman Music is always my site of first choice. The customer service is fabulous– they ship immediately, they'll occasionally phone to check on an order if they think I've made some mistake in the syllabus year, and they communicate extremely well. They seem to be able to source unusual titles more quickly than some other sites. They're terrific.
As a head/Director of Music of various state and private schools over past 45 years and now semi-retired, I am SO grateful for your constantly efficient, reliable and friendly service; your imagination in making me aware of new products and your patient positivity when I have made mistakes. You have always been excellent with music orders, arranging procurement of thousands of all sorts of new instruments for pupils and myself and outstanding in terms of delivery or postage. Your service could not have been better! Graham Reid
Ackerman Music is the most comprehensive, long standing music shop around, with the more knowledgable staff.
As a brass teacher I always recommend my students visit here as I know they will be well advised, and will come away with what they need at a fair price. I shop here not just for brass accessories but also for sheet music (there is a huge selection) and percussion and other supplies.
The repair service is excellent too and I use Jim for my own professional instruments, as well as my students' ones.
Anything you need you will find here, to be highly recommended.
Lovely traditional music shop, slightly out of the main town on the same street as the Cathedral. Every sort of instrument seems to be sold, although I didn't see any pianos or drum kits. There is also a lot of sheet music - a mix of classical and pop - but no CDs. On Saturdays it gets quite full, so if you want lots of help to choose or try an instrument it's better to try a weekday, or you might have a bit of a wait.
The staff are very helpful and someone seems to know quite a bit about most instruments - including repairing them, which they do on the premises.Best point - no background music!
I confess to not having visited any Ackerman shop, but for years have received compellingly excellent service in respect of numerous online orders. When calling any branch, all staff have been professional on every level - it's always good to speak to those who really know about the music profession, and who understand and deliver service. Proper service. And with fair but very competitive prices. Ackerman provides a (sadly all too) rare but shining example - this isn't just how internet shopping should be, it's how all shopping should be.
Having been a customer of Ackermanns Music for many years I am constantly delighted with the service I always receive. Your stock of music in my field as organist and pianist is superb and should anything be out of stock, or proving difficult to find, you go to great lengths to resolve the requests for which I'm so grateful. Also I'm always grateful for you posting music out to me at home especially when I have a sudden request for a wedding or funeral piece at the last minute.
We are very fortunate to have your services so close at hand - thank you.
The staff at Ackerman Music are always friendly and helpful. I almost always find what I'm looking for when visiting.
A wonderful well-stocked music shop in Brighton. I always get excellent advice and friendly service. An excellent backup for my piano teaching which I’ve been doing for over 40 years.
Ackerman Music Ltd is the complete service. Knowledgable staff, excellent stock levels and very quick to
get anything they don't have in stock. They also have an excellent repair service.
The website enables you to order out of shop hours and everything gets posted really quickly.
I highly recommend this shop to everyone for their musical needs.
Fantastic music shop, Brian & his team are really helpful
I can’t believe how lucky I am to have this fabulous music shop practically on my doorstep. As a piano teacher, I use it regularly. There is a huge selection of sheet music across many musical styles and genres, and anything that isn’t in stock is ordered quickly. The staff are incredibly welcoming as well as being knowledgeable and helpful.
Ackerman Music in Hove has been our long-term No.1 source for just about everything when it comes to music orders. Friendly and wholesome, they consistently deliver high quality goods & services at a reasonable value. They are famously talented for those last minute 'panics' when we need a book delivered the next day. Lifesavers! Can't think of a better music shop – I don't think there is one in the Western hemisphere (apart from the other Ackerman in Brighton). At our school in West Sussex, we have quite a frequent demand for book orders/instrument hire, but where Ackerman excels is through its outstanding customer service – kind, responsive, experienced staff who are always obliging, always offering their expertise to help find a particular book, recommend a type of clarinet reed/saxophone harness, or even obscure items such as “Leg member for a Wolf Shoulder Rest” – I wouldn’t even know where to start with that one. They know everything. My only complaint – I wish they lived closer!
I've been a customer at Ackerman Music in Brighton for 5 years. Besides having an amazing selection of sheet music (and now pianos), it is always a joy to visit the store because the staff are so friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. They have been able to source and track-down sheet music I haven't been able to find anywhere else, and usually in a few days. The prices are excellent too. I can't recommend this music store more highly! A+++++
Always friendly and helpful in store. Good stock of items at all times.
Postal orders are received within a couple of days.
Repairs are top quality.
Excellent music shop with a huge range of repertoire whatever your instrument or genre. The helpful team are always willing to aid if necessary and as a music teacher myself they are my no.1 go-to for any sheet music needs! A very reliable service who have never disappointed...
I have been coming to Ackerman Music Shop for over 3 decades, dating back to when it was called Music Scene in Western Road in Hove/Brighton and
also when it was right down the other (Hove) end of Portland Road and now when it has been in its present large shop. The staff have always been very friendly and have always got the books from the shelves for
me using the lists I have given them, or have ordered them straight away
so that they have been delivered to my house free of charge whether I have lived in Hove/Portslade/East Worthing! Sometimes if I have ordered a lot you get personal delivery from a man in the Ackerman Van!!
I also have had my 2 guitars restrung and cleaned recently to an
excellent standard. I am an ISM Registered Piano teacher and I have had 10% off the cost of my books for as long as I can remember. The books always come in the post by 3 days from ordering. There is a vast range of
sheet music for various instruments and many accessories/gifts.
I've only ever received a fantastic service from Ackerman Music. Their staff in all branches are always friendly and go above and beyond to ensure my needs are met, whether finding me the music book I need or servicing my instruments. Highly recommend!
Ackerman are helpful, contentious and very prompt with delivery. They always seem to have everything in stock! Amazing!
Ackerman Music are amazing! They provide excellent service and go out of their way to be helpful. You can approach them with the most bizarre requests and they will always come up trumps. Fantastic staff, always ready to help :)
