A Fond Farewell

After 48 years under me, 10 years under my Mother and 72 years in total, Delian Music has permanently closed its doors. It is time for me to retire!

It has been my esteemed pleasure to have been able to have served the local communities by providing an environment dedicated to learning a musical instrument. My teaching staff and I wish that you continue seeking person to person musical education because online learning is NOT enough!!

Thank you for all of your years of business and support. Good luck to you all! And please continue to support small business wherever you can!

Mission Statement

Delian Music has been in the local area for over 60 years and is family owned and operated.  We pride ourselves on offering old-fashioned service and cater to the beginning musician as well as the intermediate and advanced music student.  We are committed to the belief that “MUSIC EDUCATION MAKES THE DIFFERENCE.”

Learning a musical instrument fosters creativity, teaches effective communication skills and encourages the abiding values of self-discipline, self-discovery and self-expression.  Music lessons also increase spatial and cognitive abilities in children which helps them in Math and Science.  Numerous studies have shown that learning a musical instrument also staves off the progression of Alzheimer's. We are proud to offer an environment dedicated to this endeavor.

In addition to teaching music lessons, we offer:

Musical Instruments

“Delian Music Caters to the Beginning Music Student”

After being in the music retail business for so many years (since 1947), Delian Music pretty much takes the guess work out of first-time buyers of musical instruments. When customers come to Delian to sign up for music lessons, they also need a good inexpensive entry-level instrument so they can practice their lessons. Instead of having every major brand name under the sun for every wallet and level of player, Delian offers just one or two models of the BEST of what they consider good entry level instruments because they cater to the beginner. Delian does not sell the most expensive nor the least expensive instruments. For example, they sell one model of a classical nylon-stringed guitar for, one steel stringed acoustic guitar for adults for $129.00 and ¾, ½ and 5/8 size guitars for children and/or small women starting at $39.95and cases to match. They also offer a 5 piece drum set complete with all of the hardware, cymbals, stands¸ throne and sticks for $599.99 which is an incredible deal – or a snare drum kit which includes the snare drum, stand, sticks, carrying bag and practice pad complete starting at $199.99. “The last thing a person needs is to be confused about a beginning first-time instrument. This is where my almost 30 years of being in this business pays off,” says Candace Blankenship. “You can use my expertise and years of shopping for music instruments. Even though our instruments are entry level, you would still be proud to own one for years to come.” Delian Music is not a catalog company and they aren’t a music mega-store. Delian Music is a small neighborhood store that concentrate their efforts on first time music instrument buyers and students.

A good option for beginners who can't make up their minds about what instrument to learn is to sign up for either four or twelve lessons and split the lessons among different instruments. This also works for parents who want their children to take one instrument and the child wishes to learn another instrument. This is where a compromise makes both the parent and the child happy.

In addition, we have a great drum accessory department, including many styles of drum sticks, mallets, brushes, drum heads, tambourines, latin percussion accessories – afuches, cabasas, claves, maracas, bongos, drumheads, bell kits, and  snare kits.  Other items include band instrument accessories and microphone accessories and a good selection of different styles of music stands.  We also carry ukuleles- soprano and baritone-mandolins, many kinds of recorders, guitar and bass strings, guitar cables, cases, straps and stands.  We have every size of violins and violas –from ¼ to 4/4 size- cellos and all of the string instrument accessories.  Band instruments include new and used flutes, clarinets, saxophones, trumpets and trombones.  Contact us for more information.
