Hickies Music Shop Reading: what do users think?

Stef MR2: Brilliant staff, always buy my strings here. Could do with some modernisation in product range though.

Jewels Vass: , I seem to have become a regular...The staff are so friendly and helpful and I absolutely love how buzzy the shop can get when a few people are around trying out the instruments.We now spend many a Saturday hanging out for a bit, looking at the finely honed selection of instruments and accessories on offer.Two of my children are now having weekly instrument lessons in the schooling rooms upstairs.My daughter loves the piano area upstairs and loves to sit and tinker, asking repeatedly "can we get a real piano Mum?"I do miss the music books that have disappeared from display on the ground floor.It was always nice to have a look through the book's songs and feel inspired to buy one.I also have to say what a find the new line of 'Jet' guitars are. Amazing value!Great sound and playability.Thanks Hickies for this, I have never come across a Jet before and might have to get myself one to add to my collection!☺️🎸Please let's all support our last remaining local music shop- Hickies

Ford Trattles: Paradise

Tim S: to deal with such a caring, knowledgeable and beloved gem that is Hickies!

Steve Ward: What a great store, great staff and fantastic vibe. I bought a BOSS GT1 guitar effects processor for my 14 yr old son two years ago from Hickies. He’s tried to use it over the years, but confused by its complexities, it never really inspired him.Sam at Hickies took time with my son to expertly show him some of the GT1’s more advanced capabilities he’s been grappling with. Since then, my son hasn’t stopped using it and is so excited by the wealth of new and exciting ways to play.Sam, a huge thank you, not just for turning an expensive bookend gathering dust, to a valuable tool for my son. But for inspiring a young man to experiment and enjoy learning to play guitar in new ways. I have no doubt that you created a lasting memory for him that he’ll look back on in years to come.Hickies isn’t a shop, it’s a community of passionate people who love music and genuinely enjoy sharing their knowledge and passion with others. Places like this are very rare these days, we are fortunate. I have been shopping here for a couple of years and fully intend to continue doing so, why would you shop anywhere else?!

Berkshire Maestros: what do users think?

kirsty sidorowicz: My daughter loved the sessions she was around 4 months when she started. We did one term as we only became aware just before I had to go back to work.We both loved our sessions at mini maestro with Danielle- she was so welcoming. The season was nice and repetitive for you and child to get familiar with, we had a great time singing and making music with a little sensory input and lot of actions too. Definitely recommend and would do again or for longer if I could.

David Lawton: Superb facility.Not sure how much it is used

Natalie Irons: Both my children and myself attend ensembles at BMT. Worth checking out all that they offer from baby music classes, to lessons, ensembles, courses and also new things like dementia singing cafes and drumming workshops.

Hilary Brown: Our daughter has individual music lessons, plays in a couple of different groups and has even been on tour with Berkshire Music Trust. She loves all the opportunities she had been given. The teachers are brilliant and have helped her achieve highly.

Christina Tam: Fun to enjoy music together!

Lourdes Soares: Berkshire Music Trust has very good teachers and maintain good discipline.

Anna Horbacz: Best place to unwind and grow and simply make your dreams come true.

Jon Munns: Berkshire Maestros is a centre of excellence for music teaching. Every interaction I have had with them over the last 15 years has been positive. I cannot recommend their services highly enough

Dawkes Music Ltd: what do users think?

Andrew Wingfield: Very friendly, welcoming and professional. Thank you.

Tim Robinson: Got some good advice in relation to a new mouthpiece for my daughter’s clarinet. Also, even though we were there without an appointment, they were able to make some adjustments to the clarinet for a nominal cost.

Scott Luck: Fantastic shop, there isn't another like it that I have found!

Max Dhillon: Dawkes Music Ltd is truly one of a kind. The staff are happy, passionate and professional. The store looks very clean and seems to remain to professional standard, although some parts of the store such as the acoustic room are being redecorated, they can still be used safely.i went to try a Bass trombone before purchasing and I had a good experience with the staff helping me learn. After my trial, I was surprised to find that the entire experience was free of charge. The store offers a wide selection of instruments within the brass and woodwind area. It is an incredible shop and I look forward to my next purchase.

Annick Hooge: My clarinet needed some attention. As always service and advice was excellent!

James Green: As a beginner saxaphone player I bought a windcraft tenor saxaphone from Dawkes music , The service was excellent and the instrument was delivered safely packaged , The windcraft tenor saxaphone is a superb instrument very pleased

Johnny Stirling: Delivery and service is excellent ! - I have used Dawkes for many years - from buying hen instruments , repairing instruments and ordering accessories . Always a good experience and very favourable terms when purchasing a new instrument

Paul Froome: Fantastic shop with excellent instrument service team, full of knowledge and enthusiasm!

Mieczysław Torchała: Brilliant place, great staff and the opportunity to book rooms for free to try an instrument. Emma, who was helping me, was very kind and knowledgeable. Truly recommend to everyone!

Andrea Basile: Beautiful place and beautiful people. The best place go if you want to buy a new instrument.

john mc carron: I found them very helpul. There was a problem with the delivery but other wise a good experience.

Kenneth S: Knowledgeable and very helpful staff. We purchased a pre-owned Clarinet for our son and Dawkes gets our highest praise. Wonderful store, friendly and helpful staff and a truly impressive array of in stock instrument supplies and accessories. It was a completely no pressure sale and gave my son plenty of time in a private auditioning room to try out the instrument and sample several mouthpieces to choose from.

Dianne Edge: It was a wonderful place to come to

Ian Benns: After being recommended by my music teacher I hired a Yamaha yts280 from Dawkes. I did this over the phone the sax arrived the next day it was in good condition and was set up well. I used this for about 18months before deciding to buy a Tenor sax. I had been pleased with the Yamaha yts 280 and Dawkes music had a couple used ones as well as new available all at a reasonable price.I phoned them to check stock and as I was travelling a distance they said they would hold one for me. The guy on the phone I think John, said he would put the best of the secondhand ones on one side. When I arrived they put the sax in a soundproof booth for me to try. It had been serviced in their workshops and looked like new.It played very well, so of course I bought it, I also got some money back from my rental sax.Nothing was too much trouble for them and all the staff were knowledgeable and helpful.Would thoroughly recommend Dawkes music as good honest people to do business with.

b: We used this place for buying s saxophone. We are really happy with the whole experience. From the initial phone call to the final purchase, we felt that we were dealing with professionals. Before buying an instrument, you are offered to try a selection of the instruments in their studio rooms. They also offer rentals of the instruments. Highly recommended.
