Discovery Music was a natural extension in the lives of two musicians, Neil and Darcie Bentley.
Prior to opening Discovery Music, Neil Bentley was enjoying a long and accomplished career as a professional bassist. He’s toured, recorded and performed with: Ian Tyson, George Fox, Jann Arden, Great Western Orchestra, Cindy Church, and many others. Neil also enjoyed more than six seasons as a bassist for live theatre. Neil taught privately when time allowed and enjoyed the challenge of imparting his knowledge to different students. Neil continues to play bass professionally when the demands of running a busy music store permit.
Darcie Bentley’s bio appears in the teacher section of this site. Prior to starting Discovery Music with husband, Neil, she taught privately for several years. She continues to perform as a soloist, and with her jazz trio, Suite Nostalgia.
In 2002 Neil and Darcie opened Discovery Music with the intention of offering excellent musical equipment, and instruction, at reasonable prices, to professional musicians and students alike. Knowing that musical instruments are different than mass-produced electronics, and that they can and should be adjusted to suit the person playing them, Neil and Darcie made a commitment to offer the best personal customer service in the industry. The Bentleys gathered the best local musicians available to offer music instruction of the very highest calibre.
