According to NBC4's Tom Sherwood, Middle C Music was honored by a national trade magazine as one of the top business in the United States.
People talk a lot about how small businesses are the backbone of our economy. It's nice when a local business is recognized.
In Tenleytown, the little music store that could -- Middle C Music -- made the cover of Music Inc., a trade publication. Well, actually, Middle C owner Myrna Sislen made the cover. "I am thrilled beyond words by this honor," she said tunefully.
Sislen's store was featured among the 25 best small business ideas from the 2007 winter trade show that attracted more than 80,000 attendees.
Middle C is celebrating its fifth year in business under Sislen. She saved it from going out of business, has doubled its size and offers music lessons of all types.
A few horn toots for Middle C would be entirely appropriate.
