Kincaid's is the premier community for student musicians, their parents, and music education professionals. It's a place where you can purchase your band & orchestra instruments and accessories, have your instrument repaired, as well as learn the tools and strategies to help musicians reach their full potential. With tens of thousands of customers in Ohio and around the United States, we've become one of the most trusted voices in school music and music education.
We take the difficulty out of obtaining an instrument for your child and make it easy to obtain the necessary accessories to keep it playing great. We make an instrumental music education accessible to EVERY CHILD. As experts in music education, we can help guide student musicians, as well as their parents and music educators.
We're on a mission to increase the number of children we help begin and advance in instrumental music by 50% in the next five years. Why? Because we believe in the power that music has to change the life of a child - just like yours - for the better. We do it because of parents like you who want to set your children up for success in every area of life. And we do it for the educators who work hard every day to make music a reality in our schools and communities.
...music is a movement - every child should have the opportunity to learn.
...anyone can learn music (even those who say they can’t carry a tune in a bucket).
...music is unlike most other skills in that it can be enjoyed for a lifetime.
...the top three factors for becoming a strong instrumental musician are great educators, supportive parents/guardians, and the intrinsic desire of the student to learn.
...companies who prioritize making a buck over helping children succeed in music don’t deserve to succeed, themselves.
...laughter is the best medicine, though it’s in a tie for “best” with music.
...in finding the win/win in every situation - our customers don't have to lose so we can win, nor do we have to win at the expense of our customers.
...no one has all the answers.
...in knowing what others don’t and doing what others won’t.
...we can help school bands and orchestras grow and succeed.
...everyone should learn something new every day.
