Where Are We In CLT?by Porter Metzler on February 20, 2020
Since they opened their doors in 1950, Howren Music has had one goal: to help anyone wants to be a musician, become a musician. In their own words, they want you to “Be a player!” With over 70 years of helping musicians grow, Howren Music has become one of the oldest family-owned music stores in North Carolina and for good reason.
They put the customer first. Whether you want to pick up a new instrument, take your first music lesson ever, or need to get something repaired, the staff at Howren Music is there to help you along your musical journey however they can. They are also passionate about starting musical journies for the next generation.
Their unique rent-to-own rental program lets students rent an instrument on a monthly basis while providing a path to ownership if they decide to stick with it. The program relieves the financial burden that can come with a big-ticket purchase of a musical instrument. This helps more students that want to try playing music make it a reality. Plus, if they decide it’s not for them, they can return the instrument at any time!
(This is how one Charlotte is Creative team member discovered that playing trombone in the 6th-grade band was NOT for him. But, he would like to thank Howren Music for the opportunity!)
