About Us

A Sharp Music Co. offers lessons, repair and great gear for beginners and pros.
Our focus is guitar, bass and ukulele but we also have everything a starting band or orchestra student may need. We want everyone who walks through our door to enjoy themselves and have fun playing music.

We are an actual brick and mortar retail store that was established in 1991.
Our passion is selling and servicing fine stringed instruments, amplifiers, effects and helping musicians reach their potential.
We are musicians who like to work with musicians. You'll get the same kind of attention ordering over the phone or online as you would in person.
A Sharp Music is dedicated to making your experience fun, easy and satisfying.
