How the Playground Music Center Began

Music CenterThe Playground Music Center was founded by James Leonard in 1961. As a high school band director, Leonard realized the difficulty of purchasing instruments locally, so he and his wife began selling band supplies to area schools.

These transactions soon took off, and as Leonard’s reputation and customer base began to grow, he decided to open the Playground Music Center. This name derives from the term “Playground Area,” which was the original name given to the Emerald Coast Region of Florida.

Today, the Playground Music Center operates out of several locations throughout Central Northwest Florida and also has affiliations with other music stores in Alabama and Georgia.

Instrument Sales & Rentals

When it comes to purchasing a new instrument, it’s important to go somewhere with not just an impressive inventory, but a knowledgeable and approachable sales team willing to help.

That’s exactly what you’ll find at the Playground Music Center. They offer an extensive range of instruments, such as guitars, keyboards, and drums, as well as audio and recording equipment.

Music Store

If you’re not quite ready to commit to a new purchase, they also offer instrument rentals. These rentals come with low monthly fees and can be returned at any time with no further obligation.

Plus, with the ‘Try Before You Buy’ program, you have the opportunity to apply up to 12 months of rental payments towards an instrument purchase.

If you’re ready to start shopping, give them a visit and someone will gladly be of assistance.
