Retail / Sales Associate

Coulsons Sheet Music provides dependable, quality service to musicians.  Our sheet music collection maintains classical music, jazz music, method books, concert music, contest music, and popular sheet music.


Established in 1981, Coulsons Music was located on so-called "Music Row" on Wabash, an ideal but competitive location in proximity to several conservatories and other music stores. As other stores shut their doors, Coulsons Music continue to thrive. 

After being a loyal customer for over 15 years, Francisco Ybarra decided to continue Coulsons Music in Chicago upon Bette Coulson's retirement. Francisco plans to bring a new and rich user experience to teachers, loyalists, and those looking at sheet music for the first time.

 Today, Coulsons Music has a new home at The Shops at 900 N Michigan, adjacent to New Music School.
