Day Murray Music is proud to have been a part of the Murray community for 67 years, and we are so excited to be a part of Small Business Saturday. Small businesses are an integral part of our country’s economy and we encourage you to shop at and support small businesses this weekend while you are out and about!
In addition to our great boutique we are having on Saturday, we have some great deals that you will definitely want to stop in and check out. Ready to see them? Here we go!
Did you know that we sell guitars? Well, we do! And when you buy them with us, you will be receiving the best customer service. We will sit down and walk you through the different models, listen to who the student is and what their goals are, and help you find the best guitar possible for you or your student...Read More
Our next fabulous giveaways comes from Carrie Perucca of Mialisia Jewelry. If you have never tried Mialisia, you are in for a treat!
Mialisia Jewelry believes that the jewelry you wear is an extension of you. It expresses your mood, your attitude, your personality. That’s why Mialisia’s interchangeable jewelry, backed by a lifetime limited warranty, converts into a dozen different looks providing both options and value to the woman on the go. It has hooks on both ends which allows one piece of jewelry to be a necklace, bracelet, anklet, boot bling, lanyard, hat bling, purse bling, headband… The entire Mialisia Jewelry line is both stylish and sophisticated, but it doesn’t carry the expected price tag.
Happy Monday! We are so excited for our Holiday Boutique this week. On Saturday, join us for some great shopping all in one place at our store.

Our first vendor is Rachael Day from Usborne Books. If you haven’t checked out Usborne before, you are in for a treat! They have over 5,000 titles of books, all geared towards helping children learn and love to read. We have a fun library of their books at home and my kids love reading time...Read More

Today is my Grandma’s birthday. Every year, I find myself getting a little emotional thinking about her, and it lasts throughout October. That’s because the entire month reminds me of her as she died from Breast Cancer. I was just 7 when she was diagnosed, a naive little girl who never thought anything bad would happen to her family. I had only experienced one death in our family, my Grandma’s sister, but I didn’t know her well enough for it to dramatically effect my life. When I heard the word “cancer” at that young age, I had no idea what it meant. All I could glean from the talk around me and the tone of adult discussions, was that it was serious. Serious enough that they did surgery immediately and she missed my baptism...Read More
Phew! I can’t believe it’s just been a week and a half since our competition. It was such a fun and memorable evening, and I was grateful to be a part of it. There were a few things that went on that night, and I’m going to go over them in different posts. But, first up, I wanted to introduce you to our winners and review the amazing talent that was shared.
We were overwhelmed by the number of entries we received! We had 27 entries to begin with, amazing for our first year. There is so much talent here in Utah! The competitors ranged in age from 11 to 63. We had songs that were piano solos, vocal/guitar, piano/vocal, vocal/ukelele, a bassoon duet, and an electric violin trio. Our judges had a very difficult time choosing our winners.
Over the next while, I’m going to be posting video and ...Read More
