Bernies Music Land Named One of the Top 100 Music Stores in the World


Bernies Music Land in Ringwood, Victoria Australia, has been named a Top 100 Dealer by the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM), the global association of music products and music retailers.

The award honours retail music dealers who demonstrate exceptional commitment to their stores, neighbourhoods, and customers and share a vision to create a more musical world through their local communities. The award will be presented in January 2021 during NAMM’s Believe in Music Week, the online global gathering to unify and support.

NAMM’s Top 100 Dealer Awards spotlight the industry’s very best music product retailers. To determine the list, an independent panel of judges reviewed hundreds of submissions rated across categories that include customer service, innovation, music advocacy, store design, marketing, and sales promotions and are scored in accordance to determine the Top 100 list.

In the leafy suburbs of Melbourne, 20 kilometers from the city, Bernies Music Land's 15,000 square foot building is a hub of musical activity, with retail, education centre, service centre and distribution warehouse. It's an exciting musical destination and is "talked about" around the world, thanks to its warm musical community and friendly family business approach.

Bernies Music Land Award Supporting Application — Best Community Music Store


Bernies Music Land is one of Australia's most trusted and love music stores. In the leafy suburbs of Melbourne, 10 miles from the city, Bernies Music Land's 15,000 square foot building is a hub of musical activity, with retail, education centre, service centre and distribution warehouse. It's an exciting musical destination and is "talked about" around the world, thanks to its warm musical community and friendly family business approach.

Bernies Music Land has built a musical community which is unique in Australia. Through decades of relationship building, plus generous community support and involvement, Bernies is a place where music groups converge, celebrate, and give back to their musical community. This is displayed at Bernies Music Land's unique "Piano Educators Day" in January, an annual event in its 11th year, where guests gather from the 5 major examination boards, as well as all the major print music suppliers and top educators from Universities and Academies – gather in one building to support the development of 100 local music teachers. It really is amazing how Bernies Music Land brings the music industry together.

Bernies Music Land is passionate about the benefits of making music. We present and support a significant number of award programs, student development initiatives and performance opportunities for music makers of all ages. This includes:

Bernies Music Land began in October 1977, started by Bernie Capicchiano along with the support of his wife Doris and brother Vin. Bernie had a vision to bring the enjoyment of music to the community through active music making, and worked hard at the age of just 27 to open his own small store. The primary focus then was on piano and organs, as is now.

2020 has been a challenging year for Bernies Music Land, with maximum Covid restrictions inflicted by the Government, causing us to postpone or close many of our activities for more than 7 months. However, our community will rise again and we can’t wait to offer our exceptional services in 2021.

With the future in mind, Bernies Music Land looks to building more “Music For Wellness” opportunities for our customers and to further grow our community involvement as a much-loved “musical destination”. Make sure to follow our Facebook page for all the news!
