About Us

Many of you will know the Fine Music of the past – a name synonymous as an icon of Melbourne’s retail print music industry for over 30 years. Originally established around 1960 by Rueben Fineberg, Fine Music grew over the following decades to become known as Australia’s leading supplier of print music and music and theatre related texts. In 2002 the business was sold and in 2006 the doors were closed. A very sad day for Melbourne.

In the years that followed, Michael Jongebloed, a previous employee of the original Fine Music, couldn’t help but feel there was an increasing need in Melbourne for a specialist store like Fine Music and after much planning Fine Music in Hawthorn opened its doors for the first time in January 2012.

The Fine Music Of Today

The world has changed a great deal since Rueben Fineberg first started Fine Music all those years ago and so too has Fine Music. Not only can Fine Music boast the largest range of sheet music in the country but we have also expanded our offering to include an extensive range of brass and woodwind instruments and accessories from the world’s leading manufacturers such as Bach, Yamaha, Pearl Flutes and Schagerl. Our range caters to the needs of the beginner right through to the seasoned professional. We are also able to offer our education customers a full range of products and solutions including, orchestral percussion, recording and live sound equipment, guitars and amplification products, staging, keyboards and much more which can be found in our Education Catalogue.

We launched our online store in May 2015 with over 52,000 print music titles and over 6000 instruments and accessories. Of course, we just aren't big enough to keep all of this on site so we utilise our suppliers warehouses. This allows us to offer you, the customer access to many products you just never see on the shelf. Most (if not all) of our orders are in the post within 48 hours and we offer Free Shipping on nearly all orders over $50.
