Good News! All Marshall Music locations are reopening for in-person business. Curb service will still be available for those who prefer that option. Thank you for your patience with us as we navigate our way through these times!

Dear Valued Customers,

For the safety of our employees our retail locations will continue to offer curbside service only. Our repair shops are up and running and our store managers are happy to help you with your instrument repair needs. I am happy to announce that our online store is up and running. You can start shopping here. We are adding new products every day and hope to soon bring you the same selection you are used to finding inside our stores.

A great way to have fun this summer is with our online lessons! We have highly qualified instructors with decades of experience. Now you can enjoy a quality learning experience with Marshall Music from the comfort and safety of your home. For more information click here.

The core of our business has always been servicing school music programs across Michigan. Each year we help thousands of parents and students get started on their musical journey with our easy rental program. We partner with hundreds of teachers statewide to grow and support their band and orchestra programs. Our retail floors might be closed but I have the best employees on Earth, hard at work behind closed doors, helping to prepare for what could the most challenging school year of our time. You can rest assured that Marshall Music will do everything in its power to help music educators and their students through this challenging time. Are we back? Yes. Back to doing what we do best: giving every student we can the chance to learn and create music.

Please remember to shop with local businesses like us, when you consider shopping from home, and please continue to support your local school music programs in any way you can. Every little bit counts in this fight, our fight, to keep music alive.

A Brief History

Everything in Music Since 1948

Marshall Music was founded by Willis and Mary Marshall in Lansing, Michigan in 1948. Mr. and Mrs. Marshall grew their business with a single-minded focus on quality and service, attracting employees that shared their enthusiasm for new ideas and innovative programs to spread the joy of music making. Their son, Dan Marshall, began working in the family business in 1984 and became president and CEO of the company soon after. The third generation of company leadership is taking shape with Jimmy Edwards having recently been named president of what is now the 17th largest music retailer in the country.


Today, our company embodies the motto "Everything in Music Since 1948." We have seven store locations throughout Michigan and over 245 employees. Our staff includes a team of dedicated ­­school service representatives who visit over 700 schools weekly, as well as more than 20 professional instrument technicians who handle the repair of brass, woodwind, string, and electronic equipment. In addition to our School Service Department, we are also a full-service music store offering an extensive array of instruments and accessories to schools and musicians of all abilities. The piano department at our Lansing location features a selection to meet every need, from classroom keyboards to grand pianos. Our guitar and amplifier department is ready to accommodate musicians of all types. Our School of Music can be found at every Marshall Music location and provides private and group lessons to thousands of students every week.


Our dedication to school and customer service has brought not just satisfaction, but a string of awards and accolades over the years. As we continue to move forward, we are ever mindful that we are building on the hard work and innovation that began with Willis and Mary Marshall in 1948.
