Mountain Music is an independent music shop and community performance space in the Piedmont area of Oakland, CA. We’re located just down the street from the iconic Mountain View Cemetery. Shop proprietor, Adam Lipansky has been a musician, music teacher, and luthier for 30 years serving Piedmont and neighboring Bay Area cities through his previously owned establishment, Adam’s String Shack, before fulfilling his dream of owning his own store.

We at Mountain Music specialize in unique, rare, and vintage gear and instruments, in addition to a large range of options for beginners and advanced musicians alike. We offer string instrument repair, amp repair, and turntable restoration. We hold music lessons for all ages in-house and online, as well as open our store up as an event venue, providing a performance space for our community of musicians.
