We Welcome You!

At Halpin Music Company, our mission is our motto – “Music for Life!”

We believe that the lifelong enjoyment of music-making starts from the very earliest age. From our popular “made for kids only” Kidzrock program to our parent and student-friendly instrument rental programs to our easy weekly lesson program, Halpin Music is your family’s local “one stop shop” for musical learning!

And, we offer a wide range of musical instruments, print music, and accessories at super competitive prices. Combine that with fast and affordable repair service and an experienced, dedicated staff of music professionals and you have an award-winning, customer focused, locally owned business that has been serving the region for nearly 60 years!

Lessons Available!

There is never a bad time to pick up a new instrument and learn! We offer lessons during our business hours 12-7pm Monday through Friday and 10am-5pm on Saturday. With a variety of instructors, we can fill your needs to learn the instrument you always dreamed of playing and when you sign up for a month of lessons, the first lesson will be on us!
