Third Rock Music Center


Life is crazy busy and often throws you curves when you least expect it. When our previous employer decided to change business strategies that would eliminate our current positions, we knew it was time to regroup and make a leap of faith. We put our heads together and came up with a vision to continue servicing the musical needs of our customers and open a new local music store. With the encouragement and support of our previous employer, friends and family, Third Rock Music Center has become a reality.

Music is our life! It’s in our blood. We can’t imagine doing anything else. Collectively, we have over 60+ years of experience in this industry. That fact alone speaks volumes on how much we LOVE our customers and this business. We want to be small and local so that we can respond quickly with expert advice and to support YOUR musical interests and needs. We understand that being part of the Cincinnati music community means so much more than just hanging a guitar on the wall and slapping a price tag on it. We want to go above and beyond that. Of course we want your business. That is what supports our cause, but we want to be actively involved in YOUR music world. We want to be there when YOUR child begins their first music lessons. Or when you’re starting a local band or when you want to branch out and try a new instrument. Whatever YOUR musical needs are – we are willing and able to help!

Getting expert advice from the beginning will save you time, money and prevent creative frustration. We offer exceptional service and advice for everything from which strings to put on your instrument, or what guitar pedal will take you to the edge of the cliff, or custom sound reinforcement solutions (including design, installation and application). We are confident that we have the answers and products to help you. Our teachers are world class and offer many lessons to turn your musical dreams into reality.

The brands we carry and offer are the best in the industry. We choose not to cut corners when it comes to quality. We have had many years sifting through product lines and offerings and will continue to offer the finest on the market.
