An update from our COO

Dear Friends,

As a trained musician, and as a part of a family-owned business, Covid-19 has been heart-wrenching. These unprecedented times have brought both considerable uncertainty, and remarkable courage to our industry-- as well as many others. As countries have closed, and states shut down, we've watched our lives change overnight.

But music isn't canceled.

Our home kitchens transformed into makeshift offices, our living rooms a classroom, yet the music hasn't stopped. While we are kept from the performance stage, and gathering together in groups and quartets, our identities as teachers, artists, and passionate players altered, we've found a way to play on: through live streams, social media, and through conversation. We continue to seek what we know, pouring our heart and soul into what has always healed us: the gift of song. It's a beautiful thing.

And while things have changed here at SHAR Music too, we're hopeful. After all, the musician's spirit is resilient. As we, as a company, navigate these changes during an unprecedented time, we will do our very best to help you to navigate it too.

We recognize the importance of music, the universal language, and while "business as usual" is anything but, we continue to find ways to give back, to support, and unite the music community. That's why we've decided to partner with organizations like the Michigan Music Alliance, to find ways to give back to the very community that has supported us for almost 60 years. Now through April 30th, SHAR will donate a portion of every sale to help musicians who have been directly impacted by this global pandemic.

We are all in this together.

We will keep the music playing from our home offices and remote locations, continuing to support you, our customers during extended hours: 9:00 am-7:30 pm (EST) Monday – Friday via phone, email, and live chat.

While global shutdowns have placed an overwhelming demand on our logistics and shipping, causing delays in delivery -- we will navigate solutions to ensure that you receive your order as timely as possible, doing what we can to keep you playing.

For almost 60 years, SHAR has been a trusted source for the string community. We're grateful to have been a part of many incredible performances throughout the years. We will be here for your return to the stage, too. Now more than ever, we need your song, to come together to bring calmness, to ignite joy, and to remind one another just how powerful music is.

So, friends and fellow musicians, together we will play on.
