Morris Music Stores - Musical Instruments Photo 1


Morris Music Limited opened in 1979 in Sussex, New Brunswick. Gary Morris, the store’s founder, decided the town of Sussex needed a full service music store that catered to all musicians. With it humble beginning in his home in Mill Brook, Gary soon found that his idea of a full service music store was more than what he expected and it grew beyond his wildest dreams. In 1981, Gary opened Prime Time Recording Studio, a natural extension of the music store.Morris Music Stores - Amps Photo1

Growth is one thing that business needs and can be regarded as it’s best friend or worst enemy. Gary found that growth was his friend, but the location in Millbrook was not big enough to service his growing customer base from Southern New Brunswick, so the scouting mission began, find a new location that was big enough for future growth and the natural place would be in the downtown core of Sussex. We are located at 590 Main Street puts the store in the heart of the retail community of Sussex.

The Saint John store was the second location.

Music Lessons

We offer music lessons for everyone whether you’re a beginner or have been playing for a while and need some pointers.  Our teachers offer classes in guitar (acoustic & electric), bass guitar, piano/keyboard, vocals, drums and fiddle.

Our guitar, bass, drums, vocal  and piano lessons are private, one-on-one so you can start at anytime and proceed at your pace. We have private fiddle lessons in our store in Sussex and group lessons for the fiddle in Saint John.
