Gilmore Music founded by my father, Glenn Gilmore in 1944 at 1935 E. 7TH St., Long Beach, California. We are still here today, which makes this location a historic attraction. His dream was to share his love of music. Glenn was self-taught in the art of repair and was sought after by professionals and school districts in Southern California, for instrument repairs. What better way to do this than through instrument repair and music lessons to the community.
