Manning Music is the oldest continuously operated music store in Topeka, Kansas. Green's Music specialized in pianos, accordians, guitars and even new fangled technological equipment known as stereos. It has been said that the real trick to operating the business was hauling the pianos up and down the stairs.

Every student should start his or her musical training on a good instrument. Manning Music offers new, near new and used band instruments on a rent-to-own plan. Rental payments may be applied toward the purchase of the instrument, and the instrument may be returned to us at any time provided rental payments are up to date. There is no time limit on return privilege.


In terms of value, the new Artist '60 Series is probably the best guitar Alvarez has ever made. They were very careful to get the construction just right to allow this series to sing, and deliver a player experience that's so good; it's probably revolutionary for a mid price instrument. Alvarez created the AD70W to offer a high quality dreadnought guitar with exceptional tone and value. The AD70W is perfect for any player looking for an outstanding instrument that is well balanced and reliable.


Manning Music offers studio facilities and more than 20 private instructors. Private lessons are a great way for students to learn at their own pace. Private instruction affords students personal attention that they might not normally get in the band room. It also gives students the opportunity to ask questions about their instrument, music, technique and performance. Lessons can be scheduled in-store and are now paid directly to Manning Music. Average rates for private lessons are $90 per month for half hour lessons with one lesson per week.
