Beginning Tuesday, April 14th we will be open normal business hours to take phone, email, online orders and to provide contact-free curbside pick-up while our showrooms remain closed. We will also be running a modified delivery route to central locations in local school districts on an as-needed basis and every purchase during the stay at home order will receive free shipping to your home.

Curbside Service Details

1. Call us at 317-842-2102

It’s best to call ahead so we can get your order or serviced items ready to go prior to your arrival.  This will save you time once you’re here.

2.  We’ll take your order or prepare your loaner or repair to be picked up.  

3.  Call us again when you arrive.  The number again is 317-842-2102.

4.  One of our staff members will bring your items out to you.

  • Staff members use hand sanitizer between each customer interaction 
  • We use disinfectant wipes on the handles of each instrument prior to bringing then out to you.
  • Receipts can be emailed to you if we have your email address on file

We are in a difficult time and find ourselves in uncharted waters.  We appreciate your patience as we try to do everything we can to keep our customers and our staff as safe as possible.

Instrument Training Makes It Easier To Stay Focused

Studies have shown that assiduous instrument training from an early age can help the brain to process sounds better, making it easier to stay focused when absorbing other subjects, from literature to tensor calculus.

I’ll Remember to Practice Trombone in April

Music Helps Express Better

“I would say that music is the easiest means in which to express, but since words are my talent, I must try to express clumsily in words what the pure music would have done better.”

~ William Faulkner

When to Buy Which Trumpet? Jazz/Commercial Edition

I’ve got some news for everyone: I am a trumpet junkie. I have always been fascinated by different brands and models and have even experienced many cases of FOMO (fear of missing out) when it comes to my equipment. I’ve taught several students and have had to have this conversation many times and have even asked for personal recommendations. Today is just a quick look at what instruments you should purchase and when, depending upon your musical path. While it is super difficult to give a recommendation without hearing people play or know what their interests are, I will give some fairly general model recommendations from the “Big Three” brands of trumpets along with a few special suggestions when needed. Today we will discuss instruments needed for those who want to primarily be Jazz/Commercial players and they will be in order of importance. (Your timeline may vary. Please consult your teacher/professor on when it is appropriate to purchase these instruments)

Music Makes Students More Focused

Majorities of parents whose children are involved in music classes also credit music education for making them happier, more focused, more self-disciplined, stronger academically and more helpful.

Five Online Resources To Keep Busy While Quarantining

If you are one of the “essential workers” out there, I would like to personally thank you for your hard work. If you are a “non-essential worker” you’re probably finding yourselves with a little extra time. It’s easy to get sucked into new shows and movies, and I have definitely been guilty of that myself. My biggest advice for those of you at home right now is to create a daily schedule and to-do list. This should include general upkeep to your home and yourself, but it’s also a fantastic opportunity to dedicate some extra time to our musicianship.

Here are five online resources to keep you busy while quarantining:
