Canby’s Full-Service, Independent, Small-Town Music Store

Business Feature: Canby Music
By Dennis McNabb, Contributing Writer

Since its inception in 2008, Canby Music has steadily grown into what is now considered the premier music store in the region. Owner/founder Brian Haines, who was born and raised in Canby, has a genuine love and affection for the community and it is contagious. His attention has always been and always will be laser focused on all things local!

The store, which moved to its current location just over three years ago, offers a multilayered approach to exceeding the community’s musical needs. On the retail side, they deal in a wide variety of high-quality USA name-brand instruments (Fender and Breedlove guitars, Selmer woodwinds, Bach brass, Scherl & Roth stringed and Ludwig percussion instruments). On the service side, they offer a full array of music lessons with some of the best instructors in the field. At a current rate of 200 lessons per week, this is actually the core of their business. In addition, they provide rentals and repairs/maintenance (all done in-house, not outsourced!) on both individual and school district/classroom levels.

Brian himself is a diehard musician and music enthusiast, and his undying passion for sharing this gift with the community is inspiring. And he has nothing but praise for his amazing staff!

Nathan Doty is his repair shop manager, technician, and all round right-hand man. Christian Engerman is his lesson studio manager and an instructor. Lana Szenasi is his rental fleet manager and an instructor. Ryleigh Mulhern is his marketing manager and an instructor. And Chloe Boehler is his part-time sales floor attendant and an instructor.

Brian and the entire team at Canby Music are eternally grateful for the community’s support and wish nothing more than to serve to the best of their abilities. Call 503-263-2263 or check out their website at: for more information.
