About Us/Photo Gallery
Giovanni Music and School of Music has been helping Edmontonians cultivate their love of music for the last 40 years. Beginning with accordion lessons, we have grown to carry one of the largest selection of musical instruments in the province.
Our music school has grown into a facility offering both group and private lessons for ages from 2 years to 102. With the Yamaha Junior Music Course, students gain the knowledge and fundamentals of music, that enable them to progress with ease into any aspect of music they wish to pursue. Our Private Music Lessons offer everything from beginner to advanced teachings in Piano, Keyboard, Guitar, Electric Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Voice, and more.
Since beginning a relationship with Yamaha in 1996, we’ve also grown to be the largest piano dealer in Alberta, now including a full line of Yamaha Acoustic Grand and Upright pianos, as well as Clavinova and Modus Digital Pianos. Exclusive to Giovanni Music for the last decade is the Yamaha Disklavier Hybrid Piano series, which takes having a piano to a new level. Our most recent addition to our family of pianos is the prestigious Bosendorfer line of grand pianos.
Rock, blues, jazz, and country has always had its roots here at Giovanni Music and School of Music as well. Having been a Fender Guitar dealer since the early 1970’s, we are proud to continue to have brands in our store that are synonymous with quality: now with over 7 lines of acoustic guitars and 3 lines of electric guitars, including Fender and Ibanez acoustic, electric, and bass guitars, Hagstrom electric and bass guitars, as well as Takamine, Ovation, Yamaha, and Guild acoustic guitars.
Of course amplifiers are a musical must, and whether you are about to take your first lesson, or want something new to hit the stage with, we have the amps to suit your needs. With a line-up including Marshall Amplifiers, Line 6 Amplifiers, Ibanez Amps, and Fender Amps, we will have you rocking in no time.
In order to keep a beat with it all, we are a full-line Tama Drum dealer. As well as offering quality student drum kits from Westbury, we also have a great selection of Electric Drum Kits for the quieter households featuring Alesis and Roland. For the hand percussionists, we carry a full-line of Latin Percussion and Toca congas, bongos, and other instruments, as well as drum skins from Remo and Evans.
Since moving to our new facility, we’ve expanded our effect and recording department to include signature lines such as Boss, Roland, and Alesis, all the while continuing our selection of Digitech, Samson, Line 6, Zoom, and Marshall effects and recording gear.
Our new facility on Mayfield Road has 24000 sqaure feet of musical awesomness which encompasses a 190-seat recital hall. With this venue, be prepared to see a vast array of educational and expositional clinics and concerts.
