Owner, Repair Technician
Jaime, a native of Lemoore, California, joined the Marine Corps after high school and after boot camp, attended the Armed Forces School of Music. He has been stationed in Okinawa, Japan, Camp Lejeune, NC and fell in love with the Low Country 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 our new home. After retirement, he opened a small home based repair shop that quickly grew throughout the Lowcountry, allowing the opening Hamner Music, Beaufort County's only full service music store/repair shop. Jaime is a member of NAPBIRT and has served on its Board of Directors and as President. He 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 non profit groups to help the continued growth of music in our up and coming generations.
