In 1978, when Ron Shuff and his late wife Alice came to Franklin, they realized right away the town was without a music store. Both talented musicians, they felt the community deserved to have its own source for sheet music, instruments and training.
The vision became reality when the couple purchased a store on Third Avenue. Ron and his family recently celebrated 35 years of providing song to what was a sleepy town, now the hub to Nashville’s music scene.
Shuff, who was writing music at the time, did not capture a Music Row deal, but he captured the hearts of Williamson County and then gave it back ten fold.
“The vision that Ron and Alice had 35 years ago was to foster the arts in this very special place. That vision has become an abundant reality both for the city and for Shuff’s Music and Piano Showroom,” said John David Shuff, Ron’s youngest son.
“It’s nice to know that you can still get local service, someone that actually cares about your family’s needs and the best quality musical instruments and pricing available anywhere.”
