Strengthening Families through Music and a Lifetime Love of Learning

We do repairs and check-ups on band and orchestra instruments, including replacing/changing strings on orchestra instruments and guitars. 


Music & Families has been serving our community with a retail music store, instrument repairs, rentals and music lessons for over 10 years! Our family has absolutely loved helping you with all your retail music needs. The time has come, however, for us to do what’s best for our family at this time in our lives. Claude has retired to just repairing instruments, and Larene is expecting her and Barry’s sixth child and wants to focus on her children and on teaching music lessons.

As of May 18, 2019, the retail location of Music & Families is closed. We will continue to do music lessons and instrument repairs, we just won’t have the retail store or rent instruments anymore. We will run our business out of Claude’s home in Thomas. Repairs will be by appointment. Music lessons, homeschool orchestra and ukulele camps will be taught there, as well.
