Our Story

Meet our Founder: Washburn Guitars' endorsed artist (since 2003) and licensed Downtown Music Publishing artist (John Lennon's publishing company) since 2015.


We've been in the business of music for years! The Music Cart (at Redemption Song Inc.) is our online, dealer licensed, music store with a unique mission. We focus on great customer service, amazing brands of string instruments and a celebration of music as it relates to humanity.  The Music Cart is about bringing you the best string instruments for the best prices.

We have an equally valuable purpose, mission and vision of being of service to children and lacking communities. For example, for decades we have been actively providing a means of support to schools and children who cannot afford instruments, by providing them with the instruments they need. 

Become a part of this story with a pleasant shopping experience with us. We are partnered with some of the largest and most trusted wholesalers in the country so if you don't see something you're looking for, reach out on our contact form and let us know.

Meet some of the kids we've impacted!

This is Hawa. We supported 100% of her educational experience from 5 years old to here at 17 years (December, 2019 Ghana, Africa).  She is in a gap year and began teaching, prior to Covid-19, while considering a singing career!

Below in urban Mount Vernon, New York, we contributed this grand piano to the school's music department.
