About Us

Suburban Music was established in Downtown Wheaton as an family owned, full-service music center in 1996. Instructor Paul Rodriguez bought the shop in 2012 and now handles day-to-day operations. 

Paul is a Director on the board of the Downtown Wheaton Association, which awarded Suburban Music "Wheaton's People's Choice" in 2013.

Suburban Music offers music lessons on instruments & voice for every skill level. 

30 minute lessons are only $30.

Group classes start at $15 per week.

Suburban Music students enjoy a 20% discount when they shop in the store.

We offer annual live performances, including a Spring Recital, Christmas Recital, Rock Shows, Festivals, and a Battle of the Bands.

Our popular Rock Band classes include a weekly 90-minute full band rehearsal, followed by a concert at a real rock venue, for less than half the cost of many other music schools. 

Suburban Music currently employs 11 teachers on staff, 3 skilled luthiers and 2 guitar technicians. In addition, we service and repair electronics, woodwinds & brass.

The teaching staff consists of professional performers & recording artists, all of whom are college graduates.

Band and orchestra rentals are available through Suburban Music, as an affiliate of Veritas Instrument Rentals. We offer competitive monthly rental rates for high quality new & refurbished instruments, for less than local school rental prices on most instruments.

Repairs on all instruments feature free estimates, quick turnaround times and a 30-day Suburban Music Repair Warranty.

Suburban Music continues to evolve with the needs of our musical community. We look forward to being your family's choice for all your musical needs, as we have since 1996.
