Bronstein Music is owned by Rich Welker and Don Edwards. Both started working at the store in 1968 when they were high school students (Don attended South San Francicsco High School and Rich attended El Camino High School). They bought the business in 1981.

Rich and Don are professional musicians. Rich plays principal trumpet in several professional and community groups, and plays both classical and jazz. Don is a highly regarded keyboard player, plays many musical styles, and performs in a number of local groups.

Both are experts in the music industry. They are frequently called on by customers and music teachers far and wide for advice on purchasing, renting, using, and caring for musical instruments and equipment.

Don and Rich maintain strong connections with the community, both as long-time members of local service organizations and as music ambassadors to many local school districts.

Music education is a high priority for Rich and Don, and they go the extra mile to support public and private music instruction.
