Chris Climer wanted to play the piano and organ when he was 16 years old.  He did not have the money to purchase an instrument so he made an arrangement to work in a music store in Arkansas to earn the money to make the payments –and he has been in the industry ever since!  He learned to deliver and service pianos before he was given the opportunity to sell the instruments.  Chris took a liking to the process and relocated to Dallas in 1969 to work for Goodman Music.  In 1980, Chris and his wife opened the Family Music Center in Dallas and designed the website www.worldwidepianos.com to great success in being able to reach out to their customers.
