Welcome To My New Web Store! 

After being a professional musician for 50 years, I realized that I had spent a lot of time looking for the "Perfect" instruments, accessories, and after market products. I found the products that made playing easier and gave me time to actually work on The Music.

With this new store, I have made these products available to you.

My Motto is, "if it is good for professionals, it is good for students, since, “if a professional can’t play on student equipment, how can we expect a student to play on student equipment?”

It may seem like much of my merchandise has to do with mouthpieces, reeds and ligatures, but remember one of my other mottos: "The tone is created by the marriage of the mouthpiece, reed, and ligature."

In addition to this online store, residents of Southern California, or those traveling to Southern California, can come to my shop and try these items for themselves. We are located in Long Beach, CA. This service is by appointment only. You should email me at mike@mikevaccaro.com to avail yourself of this opportunity. Why not bring a mouthpiece to be improved, or try one of mine while you are here?

I will be teaching woodwind instruments and, most importantly, giving reed adjustment lessons, both in person and over the internet.  I will also be teaching the business of music for those interested in other parts of the business besides performing. Again, an appointment is required. (And again, an email to mike@mikevaccaro.com will do the trick.)

Concierge Service 
is included with every purchase. That means that we help you select the instrument that is best for you. If you have never played before, you listen as I play and advise you, and if you play already, we play for each other and decide on the best model instrument for you. In every case, you are the one who decides what is best for your purpose. This service is by appointment and we urge you to contact us soon.

I look forward to meeting you soon, to see how we can work together to make your music making experience easier.
