Changes are afoot…

June 29, 2012

New book display!

Big changes are in the works at The Leading Note. We are currently implementing a plan to redesign our floor layout that will create more space for music in tight corners.


The first step in this plan is already complete: our “book section”, that is the place where we keep books about music, has been moved to the front of the store. In this location the books are more prominent, visible, and browsable. Come check it out!

Biographies and more!

Children's Books!

The rest of the front room will be shuffled around in the coming weeks. A few highlights to look forward to: piano collections will be easier to browse and you will be able to see the covers; the strings will have their own space alongside chamber music; piano methods and theory will be put together on neighbouring bookcases.

For comparison, here is the front of the store before:

Old front display.

The wind room will undergo some major renovations in July also: seven new bookcases will be moved into the room to make a new home for brass and percussion and more space for flute and clarinet.

In the back room, both choral and vocal music will be expanded significantly while harp will find a new home beside organ.

While these changes will take some getting used to for our regular customers, they will allow us to stock more music in every section. We last expanded back in 2004! We would love to hear your feedback as we implement this new design. Please post your comments below.

What do you think of our new
front-and-centre book section?
