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 their Company was to bring together a range of quality gifts (hence the Company name), cards and accessories, all with a music theme. The range was to be designed to appeal to those who were passionate about their hobby or career in music, but also to be accessible to people who were not necessarily musicians themselves, but wanted to find an unusual gift for a musical friend or family member. 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.
The two musicians than set about using their knowledge, experience and general joy as practising musicians (in all senses!) to bring together the range. The first collection of items was launched via the Gifted Musician website in 2007. Shortly after, a first shop premises was opened in Brighton. Local requests led to the sale of sheet music, which was then added to the website offering. In 2011 the business moved to a more prominent shop premises, and extended the range of goods available from the shop to include classical guitars. The online gift, card, accessory and sheet music range is regularly expanded and updated, and now includes some 'in house' designs, available exclusively via Gifted Musician.
