We love this store. It is very unassuming on the outside, but within there is such an abundance of musical knowledge! The owners, great musicians themselves, will take the time to help you select the best instrument for you. We never felt pressured but were allowed to take our time in order to make the best choice.
The music academy has excellent teachers, and it's great to have the store there so you can get your instrument tweaked any time. Dane is a very skilled fixer of any instrument. After buying two flutes there, and renting a trumpet, we feel it is the best place to go in the Southeast. (This is true--we've encountered so many serious musicians throughout the Southeast who have bought their instruments here!).
Your kids need decent instruments even as beginners. You could get cheaper instruments (ebay, perhaps), but will your kids want to practice on a piece of junk? We've rented pieces of junk from other stores, so we know from experience. You do get what you pay for.

I thought I was getting a good deal since flyer was sent home with my child from school.Wow was I surprised upon entering this nasty and dirty store. Treated very poorly and gave them money. Very poor choice after visiting other music

I agree with the other reviewer who said that Whipkeys is not the lowest price. They are a small family business and price where they must to stay in business. Their advantage over other stores, however, is *excellent* teaching staff, and I believe that my daughter (who is a 6th grade beginning band student, and made first chair flute under Allison's instruction) is getting the very best flute instruction I can obtain from Whipkeys. My younger daughter takes piano and violin there as well, and she's doing great also - I highly recommend Whipkeys for lessons!

As a parent of a first time band student, I found Whipkeys to have a high-pressure sales staff. They really push extra fees and their ancillary products are much more expensive than other stores. They also will not refund returns; they only provide store credit. When I inquired about the difference between a new instrument versus a used instrument, the sales person said that my daughter may be embarrassed to play a used instrument because it may not look as good!!! I found out from other parents who went elsewhere to get their instruments that we are paying $10 a month more than they are paying. Best to try other stores first.
