* We will be open Monday to Saturday, 1pm til 5pm for General Items and Accessories Only. Appointments required for larger items such as hand-crafted guitars, larger amps, pianos, drum kits, PA systems etc.
We are pleased to announce that as of Monday 15th June 2020, Breve Music will be partially reopening. For at least the next few weeks, and whilst we take a gentle approach to once again welcome shoppers to our store, we will be operating a limited shop service.
It is hugely important that we keep all our staff and visiting customers safe. Over the past month, Breve Music has been exploring various ways in which we can continue to offer our exemplary service whilst at the same time, continue to operate safely and adhere to Government guidelines.
For all your general musical needs such as beginner guitars/keyboards, guitar strings & accessories, cables, gig bags and cases, music books, stands for microphones, small amps, etc, we will be open from 1pm – 5pm Monday through to Saturday. During these hours, the very front of the store will be in operation for just one customer at a time. This will enable customers to collect items they have ordered through brevemusic.co.uk and purchase the most popular items that we would ordinarily sell on a daily basis.
Appointments for Larger Items
For customers wishing to purchase larger items, such as hand-crafted guitars, larger amps, pianos, drum kits, PA systems etc, we will be operating a “by appointment only” basis. This will allow us to maintain a safe environment both for staff and customers as we can use a different entrance to the building and preparations can be made both before and after your appointment such as moving selected instruments and also cleaning items in between demonstrations.
Breve Music Students
To all our Breve Music Students, we will be closely monitoring UK Government Guidelines but all being well, we are aiming to restart lessons on a one-to-one basis at the beginning of July. Group classes are currently under review and every student/parent will be receiving a newsletter very soon.
The Breve Team
For the short term, our usual full-time Breve Team will be working just part-time with altered shift patterns. This is with a view to hopefully returning to “normal” if and when further lockdown restrictions are lifted but also when trade increases.
We very much appreciate your support, understanding and patience throughout this difficult transition. Of course, this global pandemic has caused interruption to every business on the planet and nobody yet knows what the “new normal” will look like. However, we believe that by slightly adjusting the way we are used to doing things, we can still serve our students and customers and deliver what they need… albeit under slightly different conditions!
