WHITE HOUSE OF MUSIC, BEIHOFF MUSIC TO MERGE
Merger creates SE region's oldest, largest retail music source

MAY 2007 – White House of Music, Inc. and Beihoff Music Corp. announced plans to merge, effective June 1, 2007. Combined, the two retail music companies will offer a 137-year tradition of providing superior customer service, products and music education at six full-service retail stores strategically located to serve southeastern Wisconsin's music community.

With the merger, the two companies broaden their reach within the eight-county greater metropolitan Milwaukee region, while also strengthening and enhancing the services and products available to customers at each of the six retail locations. In addition, the merged company will continue to serve instrument rental customers throughout Wisconsin facilitated by a statewide dealer network established by Beihoff Music.

White House of Music operates its flagship store at 2101 N. Springdale Road in Waukesha with two additional locations in Watertown and West Bend. Beihoff Music is headquartered at 11737 W. North Avenue in Wauwatosa, and operates two additional retail locations in Oconomowoc and Germantown.

“The synergies that will result from the merger will generate many benefits for our customers,” notes Christopher White, president and chief executive officer with White House of Music. “This merger will allow us to provide enhanced services – at twice the number of locations – to benefit all of our customers. Together, we become the oldest and largest retail music company in the region, while maintaining a solid tradition of excellence that was established long ago by the founding families.”

“I am excited for our companies to join forces because it is a natural pairing. We share a similar philosophy in that the beauty of music is to be enjoyed for life,” adds David Carter, president and owner of Beihoff Music. “We also share a similar mission, which is a commitment to providing exceptional services and products to help enrich the musical pursuits of all our customers at every age and stage of their musical growth and development.”

White House of Music, founded in 1953, and Beihoff Music, founded in 1924, are privately held companies, and each brings three retail locations to the merger. All six stores will remain in operation with the merger and, effective June 1st, the retail locations will carry the name White House of Music. Carter will remain actively involved with the merger to assist in ensuring a smooth transition for customers as well as bringing the two businesses together.

White House of Music and Beihoff Music offer a similar array of music products and services. The companies sell band and orchestra instruments, digital pianos and keyboards, guitars, amps, drums and percussion instruments, print music, and accessories. A combined staff of professional instrument repair technicians will provide excellent care and maintenance of your musical instruments. White House will continue to be a strong proponent of music education, offering in-store lessons from private teachers, affordable instrument rentals, as well as innovative music education and enrichment programs tailored for infants through seniors. Both companies offer customers on-line access to products and services through their Web gateways: www.whitehouseofmusic.com, and www.beihoffmusic.com.

Lessons are taught by highly qualified teachers many of whom have been here for years and have maintained a studio of students for the long term. To keep students interested from age 5 through high school shows that the teachers are really connecting with the students and want them to suceed.
