Billy Hydes / Allans in receivership

By Tim Topham | Piano Teaching

Mainly of interest to Australian readers: if you haven’t already heard, Allans and Billy Hyde Music has gone into receivership with debts of 4 million. There was talk of this for sometime so it’s no real surprise to many teachers…

Can’t say I’m too sad about it (except on behalf of staff) as they were always very expensive and customer service tended to be hit and miss. I think they probably just misjudged everyone’s move to buy music, sheet music and even instruments online.

Here’s hoping for some big clearance sales in the coming months!!

AFR media release.
