Robert Averwater

Robert Averwater’s father, M. J. Averwater taught music, wrote a method book and opened up Amro Music in Memphis, TN, with a fellow music teacher. Robert recalled some of the challenges of the store in the early days after World War II.  The inventory needed to be reestablished as instruments and accessories were slowly becoming available again after the war.  He continued to expand the company and hired many dedicated employees who stayed with the store until their retirement. Robert was proud that two of his four sons, Chip and Patrick, followed in his footsteps at the store, and that a fourth generation of Averwaters, CJ and Nick have continued the family tradition.
