About West Music

West Music started out in 1941 selling select instruments and sheet music as Peterson-West Music Company in Iowa City, Iowa. But we’ve grown a bit since then. Over the past 80+ years, we’ve made changes big and small to meet the growing needs of music teachers, directors, musicians, music therapists, and students so people of all ages and abilities can Play Now, Play for Life. 

Today, West Music is the largest supplier of elementary general music products in the U.S. With our four locations throughout Iowa (Coralville, Marion, Cedar Falls, and Davenport) plus our Dubuque service center, West Music is a complete one-stop shop for musicians of all ages in eastern Iowa and western Illinois. In addition to dedicated teams focused on serving music teachers, directors, and musicians regionally and nationally, West Music has grown to include several specialized divisions:
