About Tigard Music


The neighborhood music store.

Tigard Music opened in November of 1976. Our owner Ron was managing Gateway Music at the time and had the chance to purchase that store. He decided to start from scratch, and start a new business. After extensive research he decided that Tigard would be the ideal place. Our original location was at Tigard Plaza, the carpet that Mark glued down is still there.

It only took a few years for the business to grow out of the 1,000 square foot space at Tigard Plaza. So in April of 1985, we moved to the Fred Meyer shopping complex. At that time Ron was active in the Tigard Police Reserves, so about six off duty police officers helped pack up the old store and transport Tigard Music to our current location.

For over 40 years, we have strived to provide the best customer service experience to our Oregon and SW Washington customers. Let us help you with your musical needs, come see us today!

Ordered pick ups for my tele. It was nice to talk with someone who actually knows the products. I didn’t feel like they were just trying to sell me the most expensive items. Instead they wanted to make sure I got what was right for me. Wish I had discovered them a long time ago

Seems like I only rate things when I am either really impressed or not at all. In this case, my wife and I went to Tigard Music to buy my daughter a ukulele. They were awesome, super low pressure, very informative. We received more than we paid for.  The value was great and the equipment was quality. We worked with Mark. We will go back again!!
