Gil Flores:


Owner since 2014

Gil has been a music educator for well over 25 years. Beginning while in high school Gil helped his class mates play instruments like trumpet and piano. Then while attending Western Connecticut State University, where he was working on attaining his BA in Music Education, he began teaching at a local music shop where he honed his teaching skills while also working part time in the store. After, Gil returned home where he found a job teaching and working full time in Westport at another local music shop. He joined his first cover band, Gargamel, where he still sings lead, while also covering the keyboard and secondary guitar parts. He had a short stint with a big corporate music store in New Haven. Shortly after that he attended Porter and Chester Institute, gaining a certificate in low voltage electronics and left music retail to try other avenues, including Satellite Dish installer, cashier, DJing, all before returning to The Music Score as a manager and teacher. After a while, the previous owner would offer the store to Gil and his expanding family, where they decided to take on the challenge. To which he is found today: repairing a variety of instruments including: Band & Orchestra, Guitars & Basses, the occasional culturally diverse instruments, as well as pianos, and many more. He also teaches most of the instruments offered, while also running the retail side of everything. He's a devoted husband and father of three. You can also find his parents helping out during the day and his daughter,. Alex, helping out as well.


I've been there once with my son who needed to fix his bass guitar. The owner was clearly knowledgeable about music, and treated the instrument with gentleness. Seeing someone really like what they do is a pleasure to me, especially regarding music and instruments. They also have guitar lessons available. I'll be back !!

We only bought a guitar hanger but the owner, Gil Flores was extremely friendly and accommodating. He was kind to the people before us and answered all our questions with patience and ease. We will be back for lessons!!

My daughter's piano teacher in East Hampton recommended this store for the purchase of a piano. Thank you Gil for your help selecting one of your pianos. We purchased our piano several days before Christmas as a gift for my daughter. As it can be challenging to find delivery at the holidays, the store owner went out of his way to deliver the piano personally on Christmas Eve. The piano sounds wonderful and my daughter was thrilled. Thanks for the excellent service, wonderful piano, and beautiful music that now fills my home.

Gil was awesome! He tuned my piano and made sure it was done right. I can’t remember the last time it was tuned so major work and a pitch raise was needed. Despite it taking a bit longer than expected, he made sure I was a priority by cancelling his existing appointments. My Piano sounds brand new by the way... highly recommend 👍🏼
