Throughout the year we host events that cater to all musicians no matter what instrument you might play.
Most commonly we host masterclass or clinic-style events with famous musicians from all over the world including some big names like Eric Johnson, Larry Carlton and Guthrie Govan. Click here to view upcoming events.
Past In-Store Events
We've hosted events with representatives from some of the biggest brands in the industry such as Gibson, Orange and Native Instruments. These events are free and give you the opportunity to come down and ask questions about your next purchase or to just learn about your favourite brands.
Our in-store events are generally held during the day so that you’re not pressed for time when trying the gear out, but we do occasionally host evening brand events.
Some of the bigger brand events we’ve hosted include:
- The Taylor Roadshow – Taylor Guitars come down to the store annually to run through all of their models and break down each guitar, series by series. After the show, you have the opportunity to ask questions and try the newest guitars out for yourself.
- Craig Blundell Demonstrates Roland TD-50K – Craig Blundell is a phenomenal drummer and came down to the store to show us how to get the most out of a TD-50K drum kit. We weren’t only treated some amazing drumming but we all got a chance to try out the Roland Kit before it was even released!
Who We’ve Had At Andertons Music Co.
Alongside those brand events, we’ve had some amazing musicians in the store to host clinics and masterclasses. These artists come down and play a few of their famous songs and then teach some of their tricks of the trade.
We’ve had some of the best guitarists, bassists and drummers in the world teach us about their approach to music.
Often, they’ll go through their history of being a musician and how they’ve come to learn what they know as well as sharing that knowledge with you. At the end of the show, a microphone is passed around the room and you can ask the artists any burning questions you might have.
