FantasyMusic started off as Fantasyland Guitar Shop operating from 1997 to 2000 in the alley of Chao Zhou Street, Taipei, and was already at that time committed to popularizing Fingerstyle steel string guitar performances. The shop was responsible for matters regarding Fingerstyle masters abroad coming to Taiwan to perform, and began to bring together a group of Taiwanese Fingerstyle performers and pioneers. The goal at that time was to prove that steel string acoustic guitar was not only suitable for accompaniment, but also able to derive into diverse and rich Fingerstyle, as well as cultivating an environment with diverse steel string acoustic guitar genre.
After years of management, many fingerstyle friends, teachers and enthusiasts were gathered, but due to a transformation in partnership notion and business model the name Fantasyland Guitar Shop retired. However, in 2007 Mr. Larry Chi, the leader of FantasyMusic, settled down in Chungli city and made up his mind to open up FantasyMusic. He decided to integrate classical music with pop music and recruit talented teachers that would dedicate themselves to creating a warm yet professional shop. He also began to actively introduce and deal (handmade) instruments, adapters, speakers and parts from prestigious international brands. Mr. Chi even introduced products with the shop brand name and created a musical environment that was mature and supported by excellent teachers.
We are overjoyed as well as honored to be the designated distributor and dealer in Taiwan for these prestigious excellent international brands. Though we are not a large corporation with considerable capital, these brands gave us the biggest support and encouragement upon seeing the passion of our colleagues and how we put in great effort to promote music environment. We are extremely grateful and promise to humbly continue to strive for everyone and for these brands.
In recent years, we’ve gradually started to sponsor and support several music associated performances and competitions as co-organizers, slowly becoming pioneers in the field of professional guitars and related equipment in Taiwan, as well as leading choice of instrument purchases and consulting numerous artists and professionals.
At the same time, Fantasy Music also wishes to ease the stress of initial contact with guitars or other instruments, strictly control the quality of our brand name, and attract more people into the world of music with the most competitive price in the group purchasing market. We’re confident to say we’re able to provide the best and truthful service and product quality with our sincere, non-grandstanding style and attitude.
