Village Music Wellington recently announced that it was named an authorized dealer for Martin Guitars, one of the world’s leading acoustic instrument makers.
Village Music owners – husband and wife team Steve and Donna Willey – see the Martin dealership as breaking new ground for their business.
“The Martin line is an excellent opportunity for us to prove our expertise in the guitar field,” says Steve Willey.
“Martin guitars have played an enormous role in shaping guitar music over the past almost two centuries. The Martin brand is an icon, and we’re very proud to be associated with it and to be able to offer these legendary guitars to our customers,” adds Donna Willey.
Martin guitars are hand-made by skilled craftsmen who use a combination of new design and techniques along with traditional techniques introduced by company founder Christian Frederick Martin.
Village Music Wellington plans to offer workshops and master classes based on the Martin line, featuring their own instructors as well as official Martin artists at one or more of the events.
Village Music is planning an August move and expansion from its current location in the Wellington Green Square to a 4,000-square-foot new home between Barnes & Noble and the Wellington Green Mall on Forest Hill Boulevard.
In 2014, Village Music Wellington was honored as “Best New Music Dealer in the U.S.” from industry publication The Music & Sound Retailer.
