A kingdom of keyboards for all
One of RPP’s ‘key’ sponsors, Bernie’s Music Land is the largest piano and organ specialty store in the southern hemisphere. This independent, family business – established now for 42 years, and catering to professional, amateur and beginner musicians – has been built on a foundation of personal service, far-reaching expertise and an abiding love of music.
Founder, Bernie Capicchiano, a former President of the Australian Music Association, and an icon in the industry, still oversees a dedicated team of professionals delivering a level of informed service once universally expected, now rarely found.
This land of keyboards, right next to the (Eastlink) Canterbury Rd exit in Ringwood, has over 400 keyboard instruments on display in a large, comfortable and relaxing showroom. Bernie’s Music Land also provides music education, piano tuning and repairs, trade-up packages, electronic servicing, custom design instruments and much more. They stock an extensive range of accessories including: instrument care packs, artist CDs, specialty music for jazz keyboard and classic organ plus musical giftware.
In keeping with their strong support of a healthy and vibrant music industry Bernie’s Music Land also feature 100 seat recitals and 30 seat workshops in their central space. World-famous musicians will often play there, or conduct master-classes, while others, for example, might pull apart a piano to show a group of school children exactly ‘where the noise comes from’.
Bernies Music Land runs regular workshops and discovery events for musicians of all ages – check out their events page for more details:
Bernie’s Music Land is a major sponsor of The Team of Pianists and many other community groups, including RPP FM. They are very proud of assisting and promoting pianists and organists by providing the ‘Live at Bernie’s’ CD label which offers artists a platform by which they can gain industry exposure and international recognition.
Recently, Bernie’s Music Land was recognised with an award for Top Global Music Retailers 2017 by the American periodical, and industry bible, The Music Trades. The award recognises elements including customer service and excellence.
If you need to experience a full range of instruments to suit everyone from beginner to professional, and you want to do so in a relaxing atmosphere of friendly service and advice, you need to head out to the only family-owned business that offers all this, and more.
Through the generous provision of a Bernstein Concert Series grand piano Bernie’s Music Land sponsors the Bernie’s Music Land Hour on RPP FM every Wednesday between 3pm – 4pm.
