About Music Forte

Through its humble beginnings as an online hobby site for artists, Music Forte has morphed to become an all-inclusive brick-and-mortar retail store.

Music Forte is a full-service music store located right in the heart of small-town Galva, IL, selling sheet music, instruments, and plenty of accessories.

Before opening a retail store, we had created a database of more than 500,000 pieces of music, many of them available for instant downloading and printing and worked only as an online retailer.

While we've been privileged to serve an international community of musicians over the years, we couldn't help but notice that our own backyard lacked a dedicated music store to call its own. The rest, as they say, is history. Unfortunately, the history is not a story of great success.

It was with the success of our online presence that we felt we could sustain a brick-and-mortar store, even through a weakened economy. However, the ability to survive as a small business is not easy these days. Regardless, you can be sure to receive prompt customer support. You can be sure to receive discount prices. You can be sure to have a timely delivery with your order. You can be sure that if a return/refund is needed, it will be hassle-free. You can be sure to receive all the personalized attention that you might have come to expect from a small business. These are all things you should expect, and it is what Music Forte strives to provide.

In a perfect world, Music Forte should be able to succeed in a locale that has not even more than a few thousand residents. But that's not always the case. We need your help. If you buy from us and have a good experience, we want you to come back. We'd be grateful if you could recommend us to a friend. And if there is something you don't like, we hope you will take the time to write to our support email and let us know, so we can work to improve for you.

Music is a true passion for you and for us. We will recognize you and provide you with personalized attention and not canned replies. This small town business hopes to serve you for many more years to come.
