In 1972, Paul Huber and Terry Breese were musicians and teachers on the
East side of Detroit. They were in college and performing in local bands and
orchestras. After renting a building at the present location, Paul and Terry
began to grow their business. Thirty -nine years later, the business has
developed into an 8,000 square foot music store and teaching studio, serving
local and international musicians. They average over 800 students weekly.
Many of their students have gone on to perform with major orchestras and top
pop/rock bands. The scope of quality instruments, service, and lessons
make them the premier music store and studio in the Midwest.
In 1982, Terry and Carmen Breese opened Southern Thumb Music Studio in
downtown Richmond. They converted an old drug store into the music store it
is today. In May of 2010, we lost our co-founder Terry Breese as he went up to
the lord to be with Jesus. Today, Paul Huber, Carmen Breese and Patti
(Breese) Christensen have joined forces to keep their family run business
running and serving the areas from Detroit thru the Upper Thumb area of
Michigan. Please CLICK HERE for a special memorial of Terry Breese. We
miss every single day!!
