Wert Music

Linda (Wert) Young asked her parents, when she was twenty, to assist her in the upstart of a music store after realizing her passion for helping children identify their interest and abilities in playing music. Her dad mortgaged the family farm, which lead to the opening of Wert Music in 1973. With two locations in Erlanger and Florence, Kentucky, she is able to fulfill her mission to “support and promote instrumental music education and performance by providing service and value to schools and families.” Linda is proud of the team she had assembled and trained over the years as they understand and live her vision with the goal of increasing the number of music makers whenever they are given the opportunity.
