About KBI Music Shoppe

KBI Music Shoppe is a family owned business that was established in our basement in 2009 offering band instrument repair to local schools.  From there we saw the need for a reasonable rental program and begin importing our own brand of band instruments- FIDELIS Musical Instruments. This requires trips to China every year to work with different factories on the production.  Our rental fleet has grown from woodwind and brass instruments to include string instruments too. 

In 2016 we moved to our current location in Fredericksburg, VA which is located halfway between Richmond, VA and Washington D.C. Currently we service schools in Spotsylvania, Fredericksburg, Stafford, Prince William, King George and Orange. Our fully equipped on site repair shop services band and orchestra instruments. 

Lessons are available for all instruments and our showroom has many wonderful gift items and accessories for every musician.  

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