McMillan Music Company

David Duane took over as President of McMillan Music when his uncle, Don McMillan, retired in 2017. David grew up in the business as his mother, Don’s sister, brought young David to the factory at a young age. David has been involved ever since, not just filling orders of the band and orchestra accessories they produce, but developing a true passion for the industry! David proudly explained the company all began in his grandparent’s basement when his uncle befriended Louie Armstrong and Duke Ellington and supplied them with valve oil and cork grease. As President of the company, David continues to look for new opportunities and products he can create to help support the industry he loves.
