It all started back in 1996 when Ben was working the counter and teaching lessons at Sandy Campbell Music & Stereo in Valdosta.
With a growing family and new economic challenges Ben decided to take a "Leap Of Faith" and open a small music store.
He sold a couple of his cherished guitars and borrowed a couple thousand dollars from family members. Ben emerged and opened Encore Music Center in 1996.
After a few years the name was changed to Ben Owens Music to give the business a more personal touch.
Ben's mission is to keep music alive by inspiring and teaching the next generation as well as provide quality affordable instruments and great customer service.
