About Pierre Music

In 2009, after retiring from teaching band and orchestra in the public school system, Kerry Freidel decided to create a small brick and mortar store in Pierre, South Dakota, where he and other local music instructors could teach private lessons.  People appreciated having a music store in town, as the closest alternative is about three hours away. Pierre Music is a meeting place featuring five lesson rooms where teachers and students can get together in a neutral setting and learn to play, musicians can collaborate, open mics are hosted, recitals are planned, and more.  

In the beginning, the store was only selling acoustic guitars, but over time has gradually grown its inventory.  Now we are able to accommodate a large variety of musicians.  We have enough teachers that we now have lessons available for every instrument that we carry in the store, for all ages, and for all skill levels. We are a full-line Taylor dealership, and an award winning Roland equipment and keyboard/piano dealer. We are also a registered dealer for Godin, Seagull, LaPatrie, G&L, Goldtone, Divine Design Guitar Cabinetry, and Mack Brass.

We are so happy to see that you're joining us on our newest adventure - selling these quality products online!  We thank you for visiting our online store and supporting this small, growing business and the families that keep it running.
