Bob Kohl was hired by Music & Arts in Maryland just before turning sixteen years old and has been in the industry ever since that time.  The store was located in the local mall and he began working within the sheet music department, an area of the industry he would soon fall in love with and remain.  Bob was later hired by Columba Music Publishing to work in their Miami office to transfer over the Belwin inventory, following the acquisition of Belwin Music Publishing by Columbia Music.  Bob moved to Ward Music in Canada and remained with the four store company until it was purchased by Long & McQuade in 2000.
