A little bit about us
Forwoods was established in 1946 in the cathedral city of Canterbury, and now operates as a specialist mail order business from a beautiful Old Kent Barn on a farm just outside Dover. The Directors, Stephen and Susan Yarrow, have over 50 years' combined experience in music retail, and now run the business with their son Joe, who is Sales Manager.
Joe joined the business in 2012, since when Forwoods has expanded enormously, acquiring the retail operations of Goodmusic (Tewkesbury), ScoreStore (Arborfield, Berkshire), Gillian Greig (Taunton) and certain assets of Music Dynamics Ltd. Taken together, these developments represent a major investment in our printed music business and a sign of our confidence in the continued growth of the market as we celebrate our 75th anniversary in 2021.
We retain the "family business" outlook although we are among the leading suppliers of printed music and accessories in the UK, and we are determined that the service we provide will be the very best it can be. If you have any comments at all about your experience of dealing with Forwoods Music Ltd, we want to know. If there are any changes or improvements we can make, email us and let us know.
What's in our online store?
The catalogue on this site reflects our specialism, which is the supply of classical printed music and accessories, including set pieces for exams and core repertoire. It is not an exhaustive list - we can supply any item which is in print. If the item you are looking for is not listed, email us and we'll do our best to source it for you.
Whilst we try to keep the items in this catalogue in stock, the presence of an item in the list does not necessarily mean we have it in stock. However, it takes us less than a week (usually!) to get out of stock items to you. If you need an item in a particular hurry, it is always wise to ring us on Freephone 0800 072 0354 or email to check availability. The catalogue is constantly being updated with new products, so be sure to bookmark this site and visit often. Thank you so much for spending time visiting our site. We hope you find it useful.
