Baltimore School of Music carries a limited selection of music lesson books and accessories for the convenience of Mr. Greene’s students. In line with being a mission-driven small business, a portion of all items sold in our bookstore goes toward scholarships and free programs at the school. The bookstore is open to the public and students can even order books online and have them waiting when they arrive for their music lesson!
