Current Specials


Rentals, accessories, books


It's Back to School Time! Stop in and pick up all your instrument supplies and books. We have the district and local teacher approved lists for supplies. 6th graders can purchase a discounted 'kit' with all the supplies they need to participate.
New to band, orchestra or keyboarding? We rent instruments for the school program. Review the website for information on rentals and supplies, stop in or call and we'll answer your questions!

Not sure what instrument? Teachers will be demonstrating all the instruments in class for the 6th grade classes during the first week or two of school. There are also parents nights in Eagle River and Anchorage to help the parents guide their students in their selection.
Looking for the next size in an orchestra instrument? Sooner is better to size up (except right before a concert). If your renting, more goes toward your balance. If you change over before a weekend or holiday, it gives your student more time to get familiar with the finger spacing differences before playing in class.

Looking to upgrade orchestra strings? We can help. We have a variety of strings that accommodate players skill and tuning ability levels. Looking for a certain 'sound', just ask. We can recommend strings that will fit sound and budget.
Not sure what size? Do you need a 5C or a 3C mouthpiece? What kind of mute works best for practice or performance? Need a better neck strap? or other accessory? We can answer questions and recommend items based on your preferences and price range. We're here to help.

Used Instrument Donations

Help us Help Local Music Programs

SUPPORT MUSIC IN OUR SCHOOLS! Mike’s Music instrument drive. The community donates used instruments, Mike’s refurbishes them, and gives to local schools.

What started as an anniversary celebration has become an ongoing community project for Mike’s Music. Mike's is giving back to the community that has supported them for over 20 years. Throughout the year, they collect used instruments to donate to the local schools for students who cannot afford to rent or purchase one.
Instruments in all conditions are welcome and Mike’s Music insures they are in playable condition before giving to the local schools in the Anchorage School District for use in their music programs.
Valuable/vintage and those instruments that are not usuable in the schools are sold after refurbishing, and the 'profit' is used to purchase instruments and/or supplies that the schools CAN use.

“We have students come in to purchase supplies for instruments they borrow from the schools; I have had so many of them tell me about the awful condition of the few instruments that are available. So, I thought, we can do something about that.” –Katrina Eldred
If you would like more information about this program, please call (694-6453), stop in and see us, or email at mmusic@mikesmusicak.com



Time to get those beauties in playing condition

Marsha Frederick is back and repairs are flying out the door. Need a regulation? How about some pads replaced? Nasty trumpet cleaned? Drag those dagnasty instruments out of the closet and get them back in playing condition now!

Don't forget those string instruments! Need new strings? Oops! Found a crack? We can get those fixed up too! Not sure if the 'family' instrument is worth repairing? We can give you an estimate and let you know if it's worth repairing or better used as 'art'.

Guitars, banjos, ukuleles? We can fix those too! Ken is busy making those old gems playable again. Just need a restring? We do those too!
