Oral History Information
Don Mozingo was a teacher in a small schoolhouse for over 20 years and among the topics he taught was music. His love and passion for music can be traced to his parents and, as a child, Don began teaching himself to play every musical instrument. While teaching, he began repairing instruments for his students, which transitioned into opening and operating his own music store in and around St. Louis. At one point he had three Mozingo Music locations, during which time his two sons joined the business and have been running since Don's retirement.
