About Us

Welcome to the Music World Webstore

Music World is Northwestern Ontario's largest display of new musical instruments. Since 1976, we have provided musicians with top quality musical instruments at super discount prices. We offer the latest in new musical instruments and equipment to serve the needs of today's musicians. Whether you’re a professional musician, weekend warrior or hobbyist, Music World is the one-stop music shop for you.


Cosimo Riccio, an accordion player by trade, played in various local establishments with many local musicians. Cosimo opened Music World in 1976 in a small store on Simpson Street with a focus on teaching accordion, guitar and drums. He began to expand into guitar and accordion sales as the music lessons became more popular. Fast forward 40 years and Music World boasts more than 500 guitars, 20+ drum sets, a large variety of digital pianos and keyboards, music books and thousands of accessories for all musical instruments. Our online webstore was launched in 2011 and we have shipped musical gear and accessories all around the world. Music World has been a permanent presence on Simpson Street for over 40 years and in 2013, we moved into our current location with over 7,500 square feet of showroom. From small beginnings, Music World has grown into Thunder Bay and Northwestern Ontario’s premier music shop. 

Join the Family

Music World is still family owned and operated to this day. Music World is truly a family store. Cosimo has enlisted the help of his two sons Enzo and Joe, as well as his daughter Emily and daughter-in-law Pamela. Customer Service is the number one priority and every customer is treated as part of the family. Come be part of our musical family!
