Andy Shearer

Andy Shearer along with this dear wife Rowena, opened Shearers Music store in Hamilton, New Zealand in 1963.  The couple began with a modest inventory but grew to include top brands of musical instruments, a well-respected sheet music department and in the early days, stereo systems and records.  Over the years the company grew to a second location and soon their children, who grew up in the store, began working behind the counter.  Son David attended the Breakfast Session at the NAMM Show in 2013 to receive the 50th Millstone Award on behalf of his parents and the entire family.
