Lessons, Instruments, Repairs and more at Brightwood Music!

The Brightwood Music store opened in September of 2009, When owner Doug Armitage returned to Nederland, where he has family and had spent developmental years of his life, as a guard at the legendary Caribou Ranch, and as a local musician during the ’70s.  Doug’s experience in the commercial woodworking trade and his long association with repairs and building of a wide variety of musical instruments gave him a long standing desire to open a boutique store, dedicated to the local musicians. The local school system quickly became a major partner in the development of the store, and the wonderful dedication and talent of the Nederland teachers was and continues to be an inspiration for the direction and selection of our products.

The large selection is belied by the small front of the store.  Brightwood stocks a broad and fascinating collection of instruments, from international sources of suppliers.
