COVID-19 UPDATE 5/5/2020

Kentuckiana Music Center will be opening a week later per the Indiana Back on Track Plan on May 11. We are under more construction, so this extra week will allow us to reconfigure spaces and put extra precautions in place. What this means is we will be open during regular business hours for walk in business and reopening in person lessons in a limited capacity. We will be allowing limited in store lessons to resume at the discretion of teachers and students. We want everyone to feel safe. We will continue to offer online lessons for any students and teachers wishing to continue their education in that manner. We also recommend those already doing online lessons to consider continuing this style of lesson thru May to keep our capacity lowered. There is a bathroom for hand washing and we will have hand sanitizer stations in the store and the other lesson waiting room. PLEASE do not take these home with you. At the request of the state the store will be providing all teachers with face masks. We politely request customers also wear masks when coming in. Again, we just want everyone to feel safe if you choose to come by our business as Indiana starts to reopen.

Curbside Pickup & Delivery -

We are offering online/phone sales, repairs, restrings via curbside pickup and delivery (small delivery fee for gas may apply). For smaller items shipping may be an option as well.

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.

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.


Since regular attendance is essential to musical growth, a commitment to lessons/classes is expected when a student enrolls. We do not issue refunds or makeup lessons except for severe crisis, such as a death in the family. If an instructor cancels a lesson, you may receive a makeup lesson, future lesson credit, or a refund.


Drum Circles with Kelsey Lee

Drumming with Kelsey Music Lee creates a space for percussionists and drummers of all skill levels to come together for an hour of learning something new in the percussion and drumming world while jamming in a drum circle together. Whether this is something you do all the time or something you’re interested in, music heals the soul, can help anxiety, depression, blood flow, confidence, and so much more. We will be diving into several different genres of music from different countries exploring many different beats and grooves.

First Sunday of the Month

Ages 5+
