"the Porch"

day, Nov 28
w/ featured Artist:
Mami Matsuda

It has been incredibly sad at Front Porch Music for
the last several days. We lost a great musician,
much-loved teacher and a wonderful friend Scott
Shultz on Wednesday, please keep his family, his
students and his Front Porch family in your hearts
and prayers. We are strong and will survive this
together, but there will always be a void in our
hearts.  Thanks Scott for sharing your talent and
life with us! We love you and will never forget
you! -c

Scotty's funerary arrangements:
Wake: Monday 2-9pm
Funeral: Tuesday at 11am.

In lieu of flowers, the family has established a
GiveForward fundraiser to donate funds to Front
Porch Music, where Scotty taught. All donations
will go towards providing music lessons to
underprivileged children. You can find the donation

Welcome to Front Porch Music's Web site!

Front Porch Music is a picker's paradise located in Valparaiso, IN. (We are about an hour from Chicago)

Our specialty is our selection of high quality acoustic guitars. We are authorized dealers for C.F. Martin, Taylor,  Larrivée,  
Yamaha, Seagull, Art & Lutherie.

We also carry Deering banjos, Dulcimers, autoharps, mandolins, resonator guitars, banjos, electric guitars and electric
basses. We have many accessories (strings, capos, tuners, picks, straps, etc.) and a large selection of books and instructional

Looking for CD's? We have hundreds of wonderful releases from local and nationally touring artists & songwriters.

The lower level of our store has been converted into a 72 seat coffee house where many fine artists travel to perform
concerts and entertain our highly appreciative audiences. We also have an open stage each week. The open stages are on
Thursdays and some weekend nights when there isn't another show both starting at 8:00 pm CST.

Front Porch music also is home of the most popular (and we feel the best) instructional program in Northwest Indiana. The
success of the lesson program is due largely to our 32 very different instructors. Having this number of instructors allows us
to customize the lesson to the student. Whatever the style, we've got the teacher.

We also have a full service Repair Shop on the top level of our store. Where our repair center can fix anything from small
subtle adjustments to major repairs.

The concept is complete service. At Front Porch Music you can buy a guitar, have our repair shop set it up to your
specifications, learn how to play it by taking weekly lessons, try out your new songs at our open stage, and in time perform
your own concert and sell your CD's and tapes.

Now that's a picker's paradise!
