An Institution in the Community
Pastore Music opened its doors in 1939 in the same building it occupies today on 32nd street in the heart of the lively Union City Business District. Established by Domenic Pastore, it began by offering music lessons on all instruments.  Other than the Public School System, it is the longest continuously functioning music conservatory in the area.

Over the years, Pastore began selling instruments (string, brass, keyboards), audio equipment and lighting accessories. Through the years it also developed a Sound Reinforcement Division which focuses on sound systems consulting and installations as well as instrument repair services.

​Today, Jerry Pastore (3rd generation owner) is continuing the legacy.  He started in the stockroom at age 13, was running the business at 18, and purchased it from his father, Robert, at the age of 27.
