UpBeat Music was founded in 2011 to meet the demand for musical products and services in the northern region of Northwest Florida. Our decision to start the company in Crestview Florida was based on the explosive growth of the area and the numerous requests from band parents and musicians for us to open a local music store so that they would not have to drive an hour and a half round trip to buy band supplies, take lessons and get their instruments repaired. UpBeat Music has been selected by the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) as a Top 100 Music Stores worldwide for 2013 and 2014. We have been very active with the local school music programs and frequently sponsor charity events and live music shows that help local organizations, bands and musicians reach their goals. UpBeat Music is a proud Member of NAMM, the National Association of School Music Dealers and the Crestview Chamber of Commerce.
