The Quest Story
As General Manager of Quest Musique, Sam Trachilis gets the biggest thrill hooking up musicians with the right equipment and service to help them live out their musical dreams. “I love it when a kid walks in and drools over a guitar, and the look on their face when you take it down and put it in their hands,” he says. “Then they call their parents to come and buy it for them. It’s great to see parents support their kids like that.” The support at Quest Musique goes beyond the initial sale. Both locations (the one on Meadowood and the other on Portage) offer lessons and repairs, along with coordinating recitals and clinics – the most recent of which brought metal guitar legend Jeff Loomis in for a clinic to a packed audience.
Trachilis’ own quest, so to speak, is to become a leader in sales and service in the music community. His commitment is to place the highest value on his customers through the excellence of work and the integrity of his relationships with his clientele. “Music is a big part of people’s lives. And we’re here to help people, whatever their musical level.” Quest Musique plans to play an even bigger part in the musical community. Trachilis would ideally like to branch out across Canada with locations that offer the traditional musical instrument sales and support services, as well as a recording studio, café and even a lounge where local musicians can perform.
In the more immediate future, he plans to expand the website (www.questmusicstore.com). And to think all of this started by chance when Trachilis was in a high school jazz band and dropped his brass instrument on the way home. He took it to a repair shop and was amazed that someone made their living surrounded by musical instruments. Trachilis made the decision shortly thereafter and told his friends that he was going to earn his keep surrounded by music. Thus he began working in the repair shop, acquired all the skills he needed to run a shop and eventually opened his first location in St. Boniface. “When you take the right instrument, the right teacher and great service, and you put all of those together – you get sweet music!” enthuses the entrepreneur.
