Oral History Information
Betty Meyer and her husband, Ted, decided that their teaching salaries were not enough to raise their family in the early 1960s so they decided to open a music store. It turned out to be a great idea! Their children were raised in the store and both Ted and Betty could serve their customer base in their own ways while working together to grow the business. Ted took care of calling on all of their school accounts, while Betty handled the books and in-store lessons. Their first location was in the small town of Blue Springs, Missouri, which is not so small anymore. Later they opened locations in Overland Park, KS and Kansas City, MO, where they continued to dedicate themselves to their customers’ satisfaction, all the while growing the number of music makers throughout their part of the country.
