We are very proud of our independently owned music shop in Leamington Spa. We are considered to be one of the country's premier sources of sheet music, classical CDs and DVDs, instruments, and accessories.

We were delighted to be crowned Best Classical Music Instrument Shop at the 2013 Music Industry Association Awards, and were also nominated in the category of Best Independent Retailer.

Our staff are all musicians and music lovers with a wealth of knowledge and experience; between them they can assist you with any query. We also work closely with experienced instrument repairers.

We have strong ties with local teachers, schools, choirs, and performers, and are passionate about live music. For several years we have sponsored classical music events in Leamington Spa, and we also host a regular live music evening in the shop for our customers.

CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays

We stock a very wide range of classical CDs and DVDs and have access to almost all known recordings. We operate a very efficient ordering service and can get any item not in stock if it is currently available.

Our staff are on hand to help and advise as required. To make your choice easier we have highlighted CDs with BBC, Gramophone or Penguin awards, and you can look up reviews in the Gramophone and Penguin guides.

For ease of access and browsing, CDs are displayed by composer, with separate sections for boxed sets, Naxos and other budget CDs, early and contemporary music, operas, DVDs, and new releases. Items on promotion are often displayed separately, and there is a separate jazz section.

We keep examination materials for ABRSM, Trinity Guildhall, LCM and Trinity Rockschool. With strong ties to local schools and the County Music Service, we keep large stocks of educational materials and tuition books. Quantity discounts are available where possible for choirs, schools and educational buyers, so please contact us for a quote.

We order regularly from all major publishers and as often as we need to from the smaller ones. In short, we can obtain anything currently in print and available in this country. We also offer an efficient mail order service for those who need things quickly or are not able to visit the shop.

Why buy an instrument from Presto Classical?

  • Set-up: All our instruments are checked and set up by experienced repairers before they are available for sale. The initial set-up of an instrument is often overlooked but makes a big difference to how the instrument plays, and is especially important for beginners.
  • Advice: Our staff are on hand to advise on the various instruments we carry as well as how to assemble, clean and maintain them.
  • VAT-Free Scheme: If the instrument is being purchased for a child having lessons at a Warwickshire state school we can normally route the purchase via the school and in the process save you the VAT. With VAT rates currently at 20% this represents a significant saving!
  • Rentals: Most instruments are available for rental on a monthly basis. Ideal if you're not sure how you (or your child) are going to take to an instrument, and if you want to avoid the upfront cost of purchasing an instrument. Prices start from just £9 per month. Please contact us to check latest rates and availability. (Terms and Conditions apply)
  • Peace of Mind: All our instruments come with a minimum 1-year guarantee, and many (such as all the Yamaha) instruments come with a 2-year guarantee. If your instrument is older and does need a service or repair, we can also arrange that for you.
