With an ever-increasing focus on standardized test scores and core subjects, the importance of music education can sometimes be overlooked. However, music education offers a wealth of benefits for students, fostering creativity, collaboration and cognitive development. Just check out these surprising music education statistics:


  • Music education can increase IQ scores by up to 7 points in children.
  • Students involved in music are 4 times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement.
  • 93% of teachers and 86% of parents believe children learn valuable life skills through music education.


But even the most passionate music programs can struggle if they lack proper storage for instruments and equipment. Disorganized and poorly protected instruments can lead to damage, lost learning time, and frustration for students and teachers.


That’s why investing in high-quality musical instrument storage is a must!


But with so many different types of cabinets on the market, it can be challenging to know which ones are right for your space.


Here are some tips to keep in mind when choosing musical instrument storage:



1. Assess your space.


Before choosing musical instrument storage, evaluate the layout and dimensions of your classroom. For smaller rooms, opt for compact cabinets that maximize storage without overwhelming the space. In larger classrooms, you’ll have the flexibility to choose taller or wider cabinets to accommodate your needs.


At WB, we understand that instrument storage needs can vary significantly from one school to the next. That’s why our Rhapsody® Music Storage features a wide range of storage options in various sizes to fit any classroom. And if you need something custom-made to fit a specific space or requirement, our team of experts can work with you to create the perfect solution.


2. Tailor music storage cabinets to your instruments.


Every music program is unique, with a diverse range of instruments to accommodate. Take inventory of the types and sizes of instruments you need to store. For larger instruments like tubas, we offer cabinets with deep shelves. Alternatively, our cabinets with shallower shelves are ideal for smaller instruments such as clarinets or flutes. We also offer a variety of mobile instrument storage carts, including Violin Racks, Cello Racks, Bass Racks and Percussion Carts! Whatever instruments you need to store, we have you covered.

And while deciding what type of storage you need may seem overwhelming, we make the process easy! All you need to do is fill out our musical instrument storage configurator form, provide room dimensions and a few photos of your classroom, and that’s it! We’ll do the rest and put together the whole package for you.

3. Consider other musical instrument storage features.


Classroom needs are always changing, so investing in permanent, fixed storage solutions long-term is not practical. Our Rhapsody® Music Storage has built-in levelers, allowing easy installation without damaging walls or flooring. It also makes it easy to arrange, re-arrange and add to your music room as your needs evolve.


You should also decide what type of door, if any, you want on your cabinets. Our instrument storage cabinets come in three door styles: open, grilled and laminate. Open doors offer easy access and ventilation, grilled doors balance security and airflow, and laminate doors offer the most protection from dust and dirt.


If your instrument storage is in a high-traffic area, choose cabinets with locking capabilities to keep your instruments secure. We can add locking mechanisms to any of our cabinets upon request.

4. Prioritize durability and quality.


Invest in instrument storage solutions built to withstand years of student wear and tear. Our Rhapsody® Music Storage features medium-density fiberboard (MDF) shelves covered with Lotz Armor Edge™, ensuring stability and longevity. The shelves are also fully glued and doweled into the case for maximum strength!


Fully finished backs further enhance durability, making our cabinets a reliable choice for any classroom setting. With our limited lifetime warranty, you can trust in the durability and quality of our storage solutions.

5. Align musical instrument storage with classroom aesthetics.


While functionality is crucial, aesthetics also play a significant role in creating an inviting learning environment. Pick cabinets that complement the style and decor of your classroom or school. Our musical instrument storage cabinets come in various styles and colors, allowing you to customize your space. From contrasting edge banding to matching interiors and exteriors, we offer options to suit every preference.
