House of Musical Traditions is a music store in Takoma Park, MD, right outside of Washington DC. Since 1972, HMT has been specializing in acoustic musical instruments from around the world. You can see our complete catalog on our website, www.musicaltraditions.com. We also carry instructional books, folk music tunebooks, general interest music books, and amplification systems (focused on the acoustic side of things). Check out our eBay and Amazon stores for even more cool stuff!
HMT is considered an invaluable resource to the local music community. We advertise local events; you can always find out what's going on in the area by browsing our bulletin board. Our sister concert series, Institute of Musical Traditions, www.imtfolk.org is a non-profit (501)(c)(3) organization dedicated to preserving and promoting traditional music and folk arts.
We offer many services at our store. We do instrument rentals, repairs, and appraisals. We offer in-store lessons on many instruments and have a large network of qualified teachers in the area (covering almost any instrument you can think of) that we can refer you to. We rent sound systems and can provide sound engineers and musician referrals for your event. We deal extensively in used instruments and offer trade & consignment. We've been doing mail order sales for over 30 years and can ship worldwide.
