A popular music store closes in Dover, NH


It’s true. Dover, New Hampshire, loses a gem.

The legendary music store “Ear Craft Music” closes its doors after nearly 50 years. That’s a lot of decades to run a successful business, as owners Brian and Stephanie Fischer know. The Fischers have decided to retire and close the doors of their beloved store.

Thousands of adults and children have taken music lessons at the store since it opened in 1974. Music education was a big part of the continued support for the art of music in the community.

Not just a music store

If you were looking for 5 string banjo or tenor banjo lessons, Ear Craft has it for you. Ukulele lessons are faster? They had that too, and singing lessons. Learn guitar, bass (upright and electric), drums, violin, viola and cello all in one place. It’s Ear Craft music.

With rows of sheet music, you can find any song you’re looking to play. Ear Craft sold drums, guitars, bass guitars, keyboards, brass and woodwind instruments, amplifiers and all accessories.


Ear Craft Music even carried a Yamaha guitar. I don’t think even Webster knows that word, but it’s a combination instrument of a guitar and a ukulele. It’s creative.

Repairs, rentals, sales, lessons and everything you need to listen to your music, you can find it in this ultimate music store. He will be greatly missed by musicians and the music community.

And after?

On a Facebook post, the owners say they’re going to do a huge sale, sell off their inventory over the next few weeks and months, and then close for good. If you have any questions, you can reach them at [email protected]

Happy retirement to the Fischers and thank you for the memories.
