Meet the Staff
Tim Sterken Tim Sterken
Tim combined his passions for musical instruments and woodworking when he joined the SHAR Production Shop in 2003. After serving as the Head Technician he attended the Galloup School of Lutherie to study guitar building. Upon graduating from the School’s Master Program Tim went on to work as a String Instrument Repair Specialist servicing many Oakland County Schools and private parties.

Tim continues to spend much of his free time in his basement workshop building instruments and is thankful to have found a career that is so fulfilling.
Sasha Brandt Sasha Brandt
Sasha Brandt wandered around the musical world before settling on the bass: a couple years of piano, close to a decade of violin, and one summer trying to figure out the mouth harp. When she was twelve, she heard a recording of an electric bassist playing with folk music legend Arlo Guthrie, and deeply confused, thought it was upright bass. It was only during her freshman year of college, after 6 years of study, that she heard the recording again and realized her error, but by then she had become enamored with lugging her bass around, and cheerfully ignoring comments about how much easier it would be to carry a piccolo. Sasha now holds a degree in Music Performance from Eastern Michigan University, and enjoys origami, baking, and trying to raise exotic houseplants that are in no way suited for Michigan winters.
Our Farmington shop is designed to serve the needs of the local string community. We rent student violin, viola, cello and double bass outfits and provide service to local school district orchestra programs. You will also find a selection of popular accessories, strings and sheet music at our shop. For players needing advanced instruments, we offer a wide selection to fit every need and budget. space
