Our Mission

At Empire Music, we strongly believe that music is an essential part of a rounded education and a foundation for many life skills and ongoing enjoyment. Our team is made up of music educators. We are committed to offering you the best products, customer service and value in the industry.


Founded in 1948, we have spent more than 60 years in the music industry and understand the importance of the best quality educational instruments and accessories at the best price.

In 1979 we changed our focus and decided to concentrate our efforts exclusively on elementary music education. We have since become Canada's leading choice in elementary educational music instruments and accessories and have increased our customer base to include preschools, churches, daycares, libraries and care homes.

What We Offer

We are the exclusive Canadian distributor of many quality instruments from highly regarded manufacturers including: Aulos Recorders, Suzuki Educational Instruments, and the EMUS Educational line. We also offer a selection from other suppliers: REMO, Meinl, Nino, Ohana, and Groove Masters Percussion are a few of the well-known brands we carry. In addition to the large selection of elementary educational music instruments we carry, we also publish a number of books for recorder, ukulele and early childhood music.
