Reston Music

Larry Bearce formed Reston Music in northern Virginia in the 1960s and later opened several locations in the area. One key to the store’s success was the man himself. He was a dedicated music maker who found personal satisfaction in watching student’s progress and learn music. He took pride in knowing each student and the families, a fact that was apparent to all those who visited his store. Larry was proud of his staff and the fact that all of his seven children have something to do with music, including a son who runs one of the stores.  Larry passed away on Christmas Eve 2009.
