The Team Behind Hamner Music
Owner, Repair Technician
Jaime, a native of Lemoore, California, joined the Marine Corps after high school. After boot camp, he attended the Armed Forces School of Music. He has been stationed in Okinawa, Japan, and Camp Lejeune, NC, and fell in love with the Lowcountry lifestyle in Beaufort, SC, while serving at MCRD Parris Island. Jaime and his family retired after 20 years of service and decided Beaufort was definitely the place to call their new home.
After retirement, Jaime opened a small home-based repair shop that quickly grew throughout the Lowcountry, allowing him to open Hamner Music, Beaufort County's only full-service music store and repair shop. Jaime is a member of NAPBIRT and has served on its board of directors and as president.
Jaime graduated from Minnesota State College Southeast Technical (Red Wing) with a degree in band instrument repair. Jaime has been repairing musical instruments for 23 years. An avid supporter of music education in Beaufort County, he also donates his time working with numerous local nonprofit groups to help the continued growth of music in our up-and-coming generations.
