A Local Family Business with Strong Roots in the Community.

Founded in 1988, Accent Music has deep roots in our music community. My father, Don Harkey, and I started Accent Music in order to provide a resource to musicians in our home state of Delaware and the surrounding area. We wanted to supply leading brands, great service, and low prices in a family-friendly atmosphere.

Here we are 35+ years later, and Accent Music has been listed one of the nation’s top 150 music retailers! We have a reputation for serving the community well with full service on all of our products and services. We have a passion for delivering the highest quality to all levels of players - from beginner to professional.

We know music educators play a crucial role in the next generation of musicians. Our full-service Instrument Rental Program helps many kids get started in music and we serve most of the public and private schools in the region. We recognize the needs of worship leaders in the community, so we offer sound system equipment and support. 

Accent Music wouldn't be complete without the Full-Service Repair Facility for band and orchestra instruments. We have long-term associations with the most advanced technicians and guitar repair luthiers in the region. This assures you some of the highest-quality repair services in the industry. Our in-house repair facility provides full service on woodwind, brasswind, and orchestral string instruments.

We hope you can see how passionate we are about giving the best to our local musicians and that we accept the responsibility of really caring for our customers. Thank you for visiting our website.   


Thank you,
Steve Harkey, Owner
