Where to find Classical (nylon string) guitars


    Dear Guitar 7 Students and Parents/Guardians: 


    Students and parents often wonder where to get classical guitars.  Our local music stores have 1/2, 3/4 and full size guitars for rent and or rent to own.  Many students are still growing and full size guitars may be too large for them to play comfortably.  Therefore I recommend that you bring your student with you to try the guitar at the store if you plan to get a guitar.  The store personnel should be able to help with finding the correct size of guitar for your student


     The following list of local music stores which carry guitars. 


    Melodee Music in Sterling (near the Dulles Town Center Mall)



    Music and Arts in Leesburg (near the Giant/Best Buy) 



    Shamrock Music, Purcellville, VA 



    Chuck Levins Washington Music Center 



    Again, be sure your student is with you to make sure the size is correct. Guitars come in different sizes and it's important that your student is playing on the correct size in order to play comfortably. 


    Please reply if you have questions.  

    Thank you. 

    Mrs. DeRosa
