Flatts and Sharpe Music Company
When Levant starts the website development process, one of the most common questions we get from our clients is, “How can I make sure our website is secure?” This was one of the top concerns of Chris Bell, who runs Flatts and Sharpe Music Company. Flatts and Sharpe has two locations on Chicago’s north side, and remains one of the city’s go-to spots for music lessons and instrument essentials.

The store relies on its website to organize instrument repairs, lessons schedules, and a lot more. Unfortunately, before Levant began working on the Flatts and Sharpe website, it was frequently targeted by hackers, sometimes getting upwards of 200 unauthorized logins per day. After installing our secure content management system and rebuilding their site with a brand new design, Flatts and Sharpe has experienced zero hacking activity, which helped to stabilize both the website and the day-to-day functions of the business. The company also wanted a new look that recalled reliable and friendly small-town stores, while also hearkening to the look of vintage concert posters.


“It’s been a great experience working with Levant,” Bell said. “Our goal was to create a simple, user-friendly site that reflected our small-town shop feeling. If you go to our website, I think you’ll find that Levant did a great job of capturing the vibe of our music store. The feedback from customers has been great!”


In addition overhauling the look and boosting security, the Flatts and Sharpe website needed to be user friendly for busy parents booking lessons on their smartphones, or for site visitors to have easy access to information on the dozens of events held by the store. Levant laid out the site to showcase this information intuitively, while still retaining the look and feel the store wanted. We also build a custom plugin, which allows them to sort and organize information on all their teachers, something that had been on their website wishlist for years.


“The creativity Levant put into our site was amazing. We had a pretty good idea of what we wanted the site to look like and what we wanted it to do. We hadn’t seen many of our features on other websites, so we timidly asked if they were possible to pull off, and the design team was spot-on at every corner.”


Flatts and Sharpe’s customers have reported their satisfaction with the new website’s look and ease of use and continue to use it heavily for all their music-related needs.


“Ryan and the Levant team took the ideas we had for our site and turned them into reality. The customer service absolutely exceeded our expectations.”
