“Many of our brands share a common thread—the creation or performance of music,“ states American Music & Sound President Lynn Martin. “In order to better serve our music-creation customers and dealers as well as optimize the reach of our ever-expanding family of brands, we have organized these brands together into our new Music Creation Division. And the best news of all is that we have created new positions are now hiring for six new regional sales managers. Qualified folks, please send us your résumé today!”

The new regional sales managers will work with AM&S’ current independent sales representatives to help organize, facilitate and execute all of the sales, marketing and product training that are necessary to increase the company's level of support and market awareness for its dealer and customer network.

AM&S’ Pro Audio and Musical Instruments Divisions will remain unchanged.

AM&S says that it created the Music Creation Division in recognition of how the latest generation of audio products is blurring the lines between professional audio and musical instruments.

“Most of the new products we have been launching have a computer component to them in one way or another,” Martin says. “These products are enabling folks to create music in totally new ways while simplifying what used to be steep learning curves. A whole new group of consumers are becoming musicians and recording or performing through electronic means, and this new set of products serves this emerging market segment perfectly. Our new Music Creation Division is the expert sales channel for music creation products.”
