In Wellington FL, Steve and Donna Willey, in whose lives music has always played an important role, are taking on a new challenge as the Owners of Village Music Wellington, a brand new music store. The story was reported in the Sun-Sentinel. Steve Willey owned a music store in Massachusetts for more than 10 years, in addition to having 30 years’ experience as a performer. So, after the couple married and began looking for a place to open their new music store, they knew what they were doing. The presence of family in Florida narrowed down their search to the Sunshine State and, subsequently, Wellington got the nod.
Both of them are musicians: He is a recorded singer/songwriter and guitarist, whereas she has a degree in piano from the New England Conservatory of Music. Understandably, then, music education will play a large role in the shop. In fact, when completed, Village Music will boast six onsite soundproof lesson rooms. The pair teaches lessons in each one’s respective instruments, and they’re looking for local instructors. The goal is to provide lessons in all instruments, as well as in vocals.
The store is stocked with an array of the latest products for musicians, encompassing guitars, basses, keyboards, amplifiers, PA gear, drums, percussion instruments, accessories and lesson books. Soon, the store will also be carrying band instruments and used instruments. And, as if that were not enough, the store also has an extensive ukulele selection and provides instruction on the popular instrument.
Village Music Wellington is at 10660 W. Forest Hill Blvd. #140.
