Darby Music Store was my toy store. While my mother's fingers walked through bins and bookshelves of sheet music, theory workbooks, and graded piano books for her piano students, I cruised the aisles of the cramped shop stopping to study the musical instruments displayed on velvet-covered shelves in long lighted glass cases, or hanging on side walls like works of art in a small museum.
I cannot recall how old I was when this fascination began. But I cannot recall a time when I wasn't smitten with musical instruments.
Maybe you are a listener for those of us who tinker around in this world of fascinating musical gadgets. We players thank you for your indulgence!
