What Clients are saying about Musical Innovations

Musical Innovations is Awesome! I just wanted to take the time to write to you about how happy I have been with all the help your staff has provided for me so far. The team that came and helped with mouthpiece testing did such a great job with the kids and stayed so very positive, even with the kiddos who struggled. They gave off such a great positive vibe that I appreciated very much.

I also wanted to comment on how great my instrument rental night went. The team was very professional with all the parents. I am just so very happy to have a music store that is supportive and works so hard to come out to us here in our schools. I know y’all feel stretched thin at times so I just wanted to let you know how much y’all are appreciated for what you do for all the poor tired band directors. THANK YOU!
— Katherine Laches, Band Director
When it comes to the band business, no one is better. They truly care about the customers they serve. Whether it is about specs on an instrument, or proper performance technique, they can comfortably give great advice. Tracy has a great wealth of knowledge to share about teaching. She is a great resource for me and has been an effective clinician for my students.
— Mark Armstrong, Retired Director of Bands (Greenville, SC)
We are so grateful for the presence of Musical Innovations. We found their business most efficient, excellent in their philosophy, and seeking to be a help with the smallest of requests as well as the big ones. We have found them to be “old school” enough to make their customers the most important aspect of their existence.
They have won us over to where we exclusively work through them now for our needs here at the Wilds. We highly recommend anyone to use their services. We are convinced that they will not be disappointed.

— Mac Lynch, Music Director The Wilds
Musical Innovations provides quality and variety in their products and services, but that only partly defines them. They develop and cherish relationships: with customers, friends, and everyone else (defined as those who will soon become friends). They have a heart of compassion for those in need, and Musical Innovations supports the ministries of Miracle Hill generously.

— Reid Lehman, Retired President/CEO Miracle Hill Ministries
Tracy has always impressed me with her depth of knowledge, work ethic and commitment to the profession. Her areas of interest and expertise include instrumental music education teacher survival, comparison of instrument specifications and manufacturing techniques, and basic woodwind techniques for the non-woodwind performing band director. Band directors obviously value her work immensely.

— James K. Copenahver, Director of Bands Emeritus USC School of Music (Columbia, SC)
