Gifts and Music is a website run and managed by Gifted Musician selling a great range of music themed giftware, greetings cards, musical instrument accessories and sheet music. As technology moves forward this website offers an alternative shopping experience to our main website at www.giftedmusician.co.uk.
Gifted Musician has been trading since 2007 and has been providing an excellent service for more than ten years. We offer the same great service through the Gifts and Music website, which gives better mobile and tablet performance.
We operate our services from our shop in Steyning High Street. As well as our online services, we also provide classical guitar tuition and violin and guitar repair.
At our shop we stock a small range of student and intermediate classical guitars by Altamira, Admira, Paco Castillo and Hokada. If you are considering purchasing a guitar, we would suggest you try different instruments to ensure that the one you choose meets your requirements. Come along and have a play, but do check our opening hours on our Contact Us page, to avoid a wasted journey. We do not sell guitars online.
Gifted Musician was formed in 2006 by two enthusiastic musicians who had spent much of their lives involved in various musical endeavours both in an amateur and professional capacity.
The original concept for our Company was to bring together a range of quality gifts cards and accessories with a music theme. The range was selected to appeal to those who were passionate about their hobby or career in music. It was important that items sold represented value for money, that customers enjoyed receiving their purchases, and that sales were backed up with an excellent and friendly service.
We then set about using our knowledge, experience and general joy as practising musicians to bring together the range. The first collection of items was launched via the Gifted Musician website in 2007. Shortly after, we opened our first shop premises in Brighton. Local requests led to the sale of sheet music, which was then added to the website. In 2011 the business moved to a more prominent shop premises. This enabled us to extend the range of goods available from the shop to include classical guitars. Our Steyning shop opened in 2014 which has a High Street presence in a beautiful and historic small town.
We regularly expand and update the online gift, card, accessory and sheet music range. It now includes some ‘in house’ designs, available exclusively via us.
One of our directors is a qualified guitar teacher (LTCL), and also studied singing, piano and, more recently, violin. Our other director is a regular member of a guitar trio, and also studied clarinet. More recently he has undertaken a violin making course and studied guitar set-up. This has enabled us to provide some repair services at our shop.
