Kentuckiana Music Center has been around in some form or another in various locations in Downtown New Albany, IN for the past 30 years. We offer lessons, instrument rentals, consignments, repairs, retail, and booking services. Our new location is at 134 E Elm St, New Albany IN 47150! We're undergoing some building remodeling, so bear with us as we get situated. It's a tedious process. :) :)
Our Education Mission is to convey to students of all ages, levels, and backgrounds an understanding of the mechanics and rudiments of music, thus building a lifelong relationship with the arts not solely as musicians, but as creative, inspired people.

COVID-19 UPDATE 3/15/2020
We know how our customers rely on us as a learning, creative outlet, and therapeutic activity. The health and well-being of our staff and customers is of the utmost importance to us. At this time, we do not plan to cancel private classes. However, we will alter our operations to make things safer for everyone and ensure that you can visit us with confidence during this time.
These are extra precautions we are taking.
Social Distancing - We typically don't get very crowded, but we do have three waiting areas. Please only use these areas if absolutely necessary. Please keep distance between yourself and other people.
Disinfecting - We are diligently spraying and wiping down hard surfaces, door handles, keyboards before, after, and during classes. We provide our teachers access to Lysol wipes and gloves. Teachers are to wash their hands between each lesson.
Sick, Stay Home - We ask that any staff member/teacher with a fever or cold symptoms to not come to work. In some cases, this may mean class will be canceled. If students are not feeling well, please let us know and stay home.
Cancellation Policy Revisions - If we cancel, you are offered a makeup, rolled credit, or refund. Normally if students cancel, we don't offer any credit or refunds. Even makeups are at the discretion of each individual teacher. In light of these unprecedented times, if students do feel they need to cancel we will roll their credit to a future lesson. Please keep in mind musicians are taking huge hits in income right now due to cancellations. Your understanding and patience is appreciated.
Online Options - Many of our teachers are offering online video lessons in place of in person lessons via Zoom, Skype, or other live streaming options. There are many ways students can benefit learning in this setting. Speak to your teacher to discuss this option.
