Our History

Music Center of Hawaii, Inc. was founded in 1990 as a woodwind and brasswind specialty shop with heavy emphasis on our full-service wind repair staff. The repair expertise gave us the unique ability to scrutinize the products which we were carrying and to give reliable advice to our customers. In 1992, we expanded our business to include bowed instruments, and added bowed instrument repair staff. Today, we continue to serve the musical community with products of exceptional quality and a repair staff with years of proven experience.

For the past 14 years, we have traveled extensively worldwide in search of instruments for our customers, including regular visits to the continental U.S., France, Italy, Germany, and China. We have been very fortunate to have established strong personal relationships with famous manufacturers, internationally acclaimed instrument makers, repairpersons, identification experts, and dealers. 

Our experience enables us to procure products of superior QUALITY and VALUE. Thanks to our repair expertise and direct relationships with our suppliers, we have reliable quality control. “Getting to the source” is our buying philosophy, insuring the best possible prices.

Our customers include students, teachers, amateur musicians, professional musicians, school bands and orchestras, community bands and orchestras, and military bands. Instruments purchased from our store are being played in professional bands and orchestras not only in Hawaii, but throughout the United States and abroad. Our student customers have won prestigious local and national competitions, and have performed on national radio programs. We take great pride in our student customers who have used our instruments and services for successful auditions with music schools, colleges, and universities and the many students who perform year after year in their school music programs.
