La Plata County is far from a metropolitan mecca of music and entertainment. However, Durango is graced with several world-class music stores. From handcrafted mandolins and guitars to every dreamer's drum set, there is always a smiling face behind the counter to lend a helping hand to both the seasoned veteran and the rhythm-less beginner. With sales, support and education available at a variety of
stores, there is no excuse to put off the New Year's resolution of picking up a new instrument and revealing your inner rock star.
