Ackerman Music | Brighton


Ackerman Music has the largest stock of woodwind, brass and orchestral stringed instruments & sheet music across Sussex. The Brighton shop includes a digital piano showroom which includes all models of Yamaha Clavinova. They are one of the largest suppliers in the whole country. With shops in Hove, Brighton and Chichester, there is not much that they don’t have in stock.

They specialise in orchestral instruments such as clarinets, flutes, trumpets, cornets, violins and cellos. They also have a large range of saxophones, digital pianos, acoustic and classical guitars.

Clarinets are our speciality in Hove. Brian Ackerman (Director) has worked on and played clarinets for most of his life, including many years spent making clarinets and mouthpieces individually from scratch! This detailed level of knowledge on an instrument is rare and so they pride themselves on being one of the only clarinet specialists in the country. If you are looking to buy a student, intermediate or professional clarinet then their Hove store is the place to come to get the best information around… and clarinets at the best prices!

They have extremely competitive prices. Their buying power means that we usually have much better prices than an average music shop.

They are main agents for most of our suppliers, including Yamaha, Buffet, Keilwerth, Bach, Selmer Paris, Jupiter, Yanagisawa, Paesold, Korg, Stentor, Trevor James and Pearl.

Sheet Music Specialists

As well as a vast selection of music (over 35,000 on this website), they re-order at least once a week from most publishers, so music is quickly obtainable even if it is not in stock. They have won the MIA award for ‘Printed Music Retailer of the Year’ in both 2008 & 2009.

Full Workshop Facilities

Their workshop checks over all new instruments before they are sold. They do not sell “out of the box” as all new instruments need careful checking and regulation.

They have full workshop facilities for carrying out repairs and adjustments on most woodwind, brass and string instruments.
