About Westco

Westco Educational Products Staff

THE WESTCO STORY

Founded in 2011, Westco is an educational music instrument wholesale company, with emphasis on the school specialty market. Our roots run deep in the music instrument industry spanning over 75 years of experience. Through our experience, we identified a need for better quality musical products suitable for the youngest players.

Westco sets new, higher standards for quality, safety, value and musicality. We partner with manufacturers who are equally invested in our vision, stressing family values, integrity, and strong business practices. We have visited the factories of all of our global partners to evaluate how our products are made, and we continue to strengthen those relationships daily.

In addition to our strengths at building lasting business partnerships, our staff members also possess a range of talent as musicians, educators and parents to provide expert feedback on every instrument we choose to develop or add to our line.

Over the years, we have expanded our product offerings beyond the school market to also service early education, seniors, music therapy, and retail toy stores.  Thanks to all of our customer partners, Westco is a growing and successful company dedicated to raising industry benchmarks and providing quality musical experiences for every user of our products.
