Bellingham Music started as Harris Music in 1983. Originally located in downtown Fairhaven, Harris Music was the premier destination in Bellingham for quality acoustic instruments and guitar instruction.
After a move from Fairhaven to North State Street in Bellingham, the name was changed to its current Bellingham Music. The new, larger location in downtown Bellingham allowed for an expansion of inventory and additional offerings for music lessons. Bellingham Academy of Music became the new name for the school portion of the business.
In 2009 Bellingham Music moved to its current location at the corner of State & Champion Streets where it has established itself as a convenient and valuable asset to the musical community in Whatcom County.
In 2016, Bellingham Music changed ownership. Our goal is to continue providing quality acoustic string instruments while adding a consistent inventory of winds, orchestral instruments, as well as interesting and unique offerings.
