A WORD ABOUT LUNSFORD'S

The Lunsfords felt that a facility dedicated to music education was needed in their community. Many recent scientific studies have proven that involvement in the study of music and pursuit of musical knowledge carries over to all areas of a person’s life, creatively, emotionally, intellectually and socially. There are probably many reasons why Lunsford’s Musical Instruments was twice awarded “Music Inc.” Magazine’s Band and Orchestra Retailing Excellence Award, (an award that recognized Lunsford’s out of 10,000 music stores nationwide.) We feel the most important reason for all the awards and continuing success is the fact that

OUR BEGINNINGS

Lunsford’s Musical Instruments was launched in 1981 by the late Daniel E. Lunsford. Owner Sonja Lunsford began working with the company in 1983, and later married Daniel in 1985, and continues Daniel’s legacy to this day. She heads a fine staff with many years of musical experience and a vast knowledge of a broad range of instruments and accessories. Head Technician Walter Spears has over 40 years of musical instrument repair experience, and provides professional repair service for all of our customers’ instruments. Our talented repair staff is more than happy to serve you.

THE IMPORTANCE OF MUSIC

Many recent scientific studies have proven that involvement in the study of music and pursuit of musical knowledge carries over to all area’s of a person’s life, creatively, emotionally, intellectually and socially. There are probably many reasons why Lunsford’s Musical Instruments have been twice awarded “Music Inc.” Magazine’s band and Orchestra Retailing Excellence Award (an award that recognized Lunsford’s out of 10,000 music stores nationwide). We feel  the most important reason for all the awards and continuing success is the fact that…………WE PUT CHILDREN FIRST!

MUSIC LASTS A LIFETIME

We are fortunate that music does not have to end at the high school graduation. A musician can continue their music in college as a music major, music minor, or just for fun. Many churches have instruments in their services. Community bands gather weekly and play at several events during the year. We have the Knoxville Symphony and Wind Symphony, live musical performances from the jazz bands, the big bands, ensemble groups, and more.
