Music Stores in Beijing

Recommended Posts

Any suggestions for good music shops? Particularly I'm looking for a weighted key portable piano and an acoustic guitar. Also if you know of anyone who gives lessons for piano I would be interested.

There's a lot of music shops on Gulou Dong Dajie (鼓楼东大街)...but you can probably find msuic stores pretty much all around.

Thanks for that tip. However, if anyone else needs a cheap guitar or er hu go down to Xinjiekou south. It seems to be a centralized music store area of Beijing.

The cheapest ones probably will be around 100 kuai (I'm guessing here - I bought one for 300 once and that was not the cheapest). Obviously you get what you pay for, so they're barely worth the wood they're made of; if you want something usable, you should probably look at 500 kuai and above.

The two areas mentioned above - Xinjiekou and Gulou, as well as Hepingmen in the South, each have clusters of shops that make browsing easy.

aaah, okays then, in terms of chiese the cheapest I could by here in england was about 800, so maybe a 500 one would do me just fine when i move out then

I recommend Xinjiekou Nan too. Got a pretty nice classical one for 400.
