One of my favourite music stores for purchasing classical music is The Leading Note on Elgin Street, in downtown Ottawa. They just celebrated 14 years in business in December. They have knowledgeable staff who deliver great customer service every time I am there. I don’t always have time to get downtown, but now The Leading Note has an online shopping cart. I can order whatever I need and have it shipped right to my door.

The Leading Note Foundation is also doing some really neat things with their OrKidstra music program, which provides music lessons for children in under-served areas of the city.

Happy Birthday to The Leading Note!
