In 1946, Cascio Music was founded by Frank Cascio with $500 and a dream. It started as a small teaching and accordion studio called the West Milwaukee Accordion School, that also carried televisions and radios.

In 1951, a new Cascio Music store was built in West Allis, WI, expanding to include sheet music and additional lessons. In 1970, a mail order vision, Interstate Music Supply, began to service regional school band directors in Wisconsin. This division eventually grew into the more robust catalogs today that continue to serve band directors and the military on a national level.

Three years after adding Interstate Music Supply, Cascio Music opened a second location in New Berlin, WI, to house the new division and include a small retail outlet for instrument rentals. The New Berlin store became the hub for Cascio Music, undergoing a remodel in 1997 that doubled the retail floor space to 30,000 square feet.

Today, Cascio Music ranks as the 14th largest musical instrument dealer in the United States due to a commanding ecommerce presence and catalog business. It is a key national player in the music products industry through its multi-channel retail, wholesale and manufacturing operations. The retail location is a true musical instrument superstore, offering large display areas for band and orchestra instruments, drums and percussion, recording technology and keyboards, guitars and basses, and media. The superstore also offers lessons, school instrument rentals and a full repair service for instruments.
