Currently located off Greenback Lane near Sunrise Blvd in Citrus Heights, CA, Northridge has been owned and operated by the Teresi’s since 1972; now their son Chris Teresi manages the business.
When asked to describe his passion for the music business Teresi said, “I can’t think of where I would be if not at the store. If I didn’t have the store I would have to get a real job.” Teresi is also a lifelong musician that truly enjoys helping children learn a new instrument and experience his same excitement for music.
The store walls are filled with every sort of instrument you can think of and through Teresi’s collaborative business network they have access to much more.
