Showroom news:

We are super excited to welcome Guild Guitars to our family of fine instruments!

Opio ukuleles have landed – a new more affordable line of beautiful solid Acacia ukuleles from the fine folks at KoAloha.

We are proud to feature our new gift department featuring artisan made fair trade goods from around the globe. Great gifts, musical and otherwise, for everyone. We have really been working on expanding – you will find all sorts of cool treasures. Newly arrived – mala necklaces and bracelets from Nepal, and new recycled sunglasses, readers, and sun readers. Great selection of wind chimes and statues. Interesting incense.

















Our fall session is rocking! We still have some private lesson times available; please call for details. Classes running at the moment: folk guitar group, Irish ensemble, Old Timey ensemble, and kids guitar 1.













Parrish Music Store Hours

Tuesday through Friday
1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.


We are Southwestern Wisconsin’s premier folk instrument shop. We carry unusual and hard to find musical instruments from around the world, alongside a wide selection of acoustic and electric guitars, ukuleles, banjos, dobros, mandolins, drums, orchestral instruments, and all the necessary musical accessories.

We both play parlor guitars, and we specialize in small body guitars from a variety of makers, from orchestra and concert models to parlors, mini, and travel guitars.  You’ll love the sweet tone and comfort of these models.

We also carry the Midwest’s best selection of ukuleles, and often have over forty models on the wall.  Ted has played ‘uke for two decades, and brings that experience to our ukulele classes and to help you find the perfect ‘uke.

In Catherine’s ‘flute corner’ you will find new and used concert flutes for sale and available to rent, alongside flutes from Ireland, India, Japan, and South America.  We also carry locally crafted Native American Flutes from two different makers.

We offer lessons on guitar, ukulele, banjo, bass, flute, and voice,  and have a great rental program.  We accept trades and consignments, and buy and sell used instruments.

Have fun exploring our site and be sure to stop in our store and say “hello”.
