Dubaldo Music Center was opened in February of 1953, by
Bruno Dubaldo, after graduating from the Hartford Conservatory
the previous year, with a degree in violin. His dream was
to provide a comfortable environment for people to come
learn and experience music.
Bruno built the music store from the ground up, literally
brick by brick. Both of Bruno’s parents, along
with his three brothers and his wife Clara, helped mix the
mortar and lay the bricks.
Once the building was finished, Bruno, along with his wife
Clara, and his younger brother Victor, began offering lessons
for violin, guitar, accordion, piano and organ. Bruno also
sold instruments of many types, ranging from stringed instruments
like violin and guitar to organs and accordions.
Now, over 50 years later, Bruno’s dream is
still alive and well, and the business is thriving.
In August of 2002 Bruno sold DuBaldo Music Center
to his nephew Ed DuBaldo so he could retire while
still having the store be family run. DuBaldo Music
Center now is now proud to offer lessons for virtually
every instrument, from piano, guitar/bass, brass,
woodwind, accordion, percussion, and many more.
On September 1, 2004, DuBaldo Music Center joined
forces with another 50-years local music store, Beller's
