The Hawk family has made music their business for many years. Phil is a fantastic musician and owner of Hawk Music Center in Bethlehem, PA.  His father started the business in 1973, and Phil is carrying on the tradition.  I have been going into that store for as long as I can remember.  I bought my first guitar and amp there. It was always cool for me to go in when I was first learning and watch Phil play any song by ear.  You could not stump him...I know because I tried on more than one occasion.  Phil is still very active in the local music scene and Hawk Music continues to inspire the musicians of tomorrow to get started on their musical journey. We had a great after hours conversation in his store. Phil shares many stories that he hasn't talked about in years.  He tells about jam sessions in the garage, being in bands with his family, and the many customers who have come through his store over the years. Phil and his family show us that a music store can be a viable business if you are doing it for the right reason. The Hawk family certainly is.
