Acme House of Music

Called “a mom-and-pop shop since 1969,” Acme House of Music—long a gem in the Laurel District—recently moved to a new, larger space near the top of Piedmont Avenue. It’s a retail, repair, and artistic space that defies easy categorization. The staff and teachers offer lessons and workshops, and they fix, rent, and sell vintage and new instruments as well as electronic equipment. In myriad, mellifluous ways, this funky, home-grown business promotes harmony and creativity in the community.
