About KBI Music Shoppe

KBI Music Shoppe is a family owned business that was established in 2009 and was previously known as KBI REPAIR. As the company has grown we needed a new name that would better describe all of the products and services we offer. We are located in Fredericksburg, VA which is located halfway between Richmond, VA and Washington D.C. Currently we service schools in Spotsylvania, Fredericksburg, and Stafford.  

Our business started by simply repairing a few band instruments for the local schools. We specialize in brass instrument and woodwind instrument repair. From there we have started offering rental instruments and accessories and soon will be able to offer new instruments and an online store for easy shopping. 

School music programs are very important and we enjoy being able to make a difference.
