If I could give zero stars I would
I took my daughter there as she has recently expressed an interest in learning the violin.She has select mutism, which basically means that she refuses to talk to anyone, including her family. It does not make her slow or stupid although that is what the small fat balding guy we dealt with implied. He firstly fitted her for it but then took it out of her hands and refused to teach her when he realised she wont talk. I was totaly disgusted with him. I have now enrolled her with Music and Arts at the arboritum. They are a very profesional group of teachers and musicians

Great local music store
It's pretty much like every other local mom & pop music store, which is to say it's wonderful.
Lessons, repairs, ensemble referrals, supplies, questions, band, orchestra, guitar, whatever: they do everything and they really know they're doing. This is where you go in Charlotte unless you play the violin, in which case check out The Violin Shoppe.

Took a chance on me
I am a single mother with very little income. When I first moved to N.C. to go to college my daughter was also starting over in a new school. On her first day she came to me and said she wanted to play music. I didn't know what to say considering the cost of instruments are so exspensive and my credit history wasn't much to brag about. So, I made some phone calls and quickly realized that this was just not going to be an option. The following day I went to her school and asked the music teacher if she had any recomendations. She did and gave me Howren Music's number. I called and with in the week my daughter was playing. I pay my bill on time and am so happy that my daughter wasn't left out of this very important exsperience. Thank you Howren Music.

Poor Customer Service
On June 11, I brought a mandolin that I purchase on my honeymoon in Hawaii to Howren to have rusted keys repaired. I also ordered a hard case. Almost three months later, I have initiated every call to check the status, and the repair is yet to be complete. I was told that the keys would be filed, and when the case came in I could take them both together. However, I called to check the status, and the repair was not done. After a month, I dropped in to find that the repair was supposedly finished (no phone call). I examined the keys, and they were still rusted...just less so. So I left it, and after calling a couple more times, they finally tell me that the rust cannot be removed and the keys must be replaced.

I called another repair shop nearby without telling them my history with Howren's. I asked if the rust could be filed, and they said typically not. Why didn't Howren tell me the same?

I am very unhappy both with the lack of care in repairing my mandolin as well as the lack of contact they have had with me. I hope to retrieve my mandolin and pay nothing for the little bit of work that was done. In fact, I would rather not pay for the case they ordered as I don't want them to receive profit off the case.

That was one of my first experiences with Howren...and my last!
