Music Lessons, Music Shop & Recording Studio!

We wanted to offer a better place for musicians to gather, share ideas and creatively grow! Bare Sounds is more than a's a community.

In late 2014 the vision, born from local musician and instructor T.J. Barends, was finally ready to swing open the doors! Nestled in charming downtown Ponchatoula, Louisiana, Bare Sounds is open and offering the best spot for EVERYTHING MUSICAL! The quaint shop is much larger than it looks; offering a variety of musical instruments and equipment for retail in the front, private classrooms for lessons and a fully-equipped recording studio in the back. Come stop in and say "Hello!" T.J. and Chelsea are happy to show you around. You're sure to make some new friends!

Regular Business Hours: Tuesday - Friday 2PM-6pm and Saturday 10am-2pm
