Music to the ears.
Last week, H H Sayyid Kamil bin Fahad al Said inaugurated a Yamaha musical instruments store in the city. Called Muscat Music, the store is located in MQ and will stock Yamaha's full range of musical instruments and accessories.
Calling it a great development for music lovers not only in the city but all of Oman, H H Kamil said that the new store would help add a new dimension to
the sultanate's burgeoning music scene. Veteran music director and teacher Phillip Stallwood, who is general manager of music sales
and services at the store, added that Muscat Music was the next logical step for the music scene here. "With the opening of the Opera House in the same neighbourhood, this is the next step for music lovers in this country," Phillip said. "We want to deve-lop music across Oman."
Muscat Music is a division of OMASCO and will be the official agent of Yamaha in the sultanate. The store will also offer an instrument repairing service. Besides, a music academy is in advanced planning stages and should be announced very soon, according
Muscat Music will offer acoustic pianos with one or two year maintenance contracts. "That way, customers will not have to worry about tuning and small repairs and adjustments to their pianos during the tenure of the agreements," Phillip added.
Also present at the ceremony was Toshihiro Yamamoto, managing director of Yamaha Music Gulf. "Yamaha is a brand that is known around the world for its quality musical instruments and his (Toshihiro) presence here shows our commitment to our clients in Oman. Customers can buy instruments from us with confidence because we are not going to abandon the brand. We are here to stay," Phillip said. "Our aim is to exceed our customers' expectations all the way along the line, from purchase through installation and maintenance. Our customer service will be second to none."
