About Us

A little about us...

Our Staff

  • David Jackson (owner): A 1975 graduate of Lawton Eisenhower High School and a 1979 graduate of Southwestern Oklahoma State University with a BA in Music degree, David has been with the company since 1980. At that time he was Store Manager, until January of 1998 when owner Don Phillips retired and sold the business to him. Along with a degree in piano, he has been involved with electronic keyboards since 1979, when as keyboardist with Wings of Light, a contemporary Christian band, his setup consisted of a Rhodes electric piano and an early Roland monophonic synthesizer. He still performs and records with several local musicians in various styles, including big-band jazz, contemporary Christian, and salsa.

  • David Wilson (guitar department manager): David took charge of guitar sales, maintenance, and repair in mid-April 2004. He is no stranger, however, having worked here part-time from 1992 through 1995. He has taught private guitar lessons for over twenty years and has performed with several local bands over the years. He has fully embraced computer-based recording, operating a project studio at our education center and providing hands-on product support on our in-store PC.

  • Graydon Miller Jr.: Graydon came to work part-time in 1988 after "retirement" from thirty years as owner of Miller Band Instrument Company. His knowledge of the band instrument industry proved invaluable as Phillips Music expanded into that market. (Note: Graydon passed away in March of 2002. His contribution to the Lawton music community will be missed, and his bio remains here as a small tribute.)

  • Bradford Reeves: Bradford began working in the store in mid-January of 2009. Born in Ada, he graduated from Duncan High School in 2006. He's a big fan of Progressive Jazz (and cats) and plays guitar in a variety of styles. All time favorite guitar player - Pat Metheny. He recently launched his own business - Reeves Strength and Conditioning - where he spends weekdays as a private fitness coach.
  • Tasha Hoahwah: Tasha came on board full time in July of 2012 right after our 'big move'. She is from Elgin, having graduated from Elgin High School in 2011. She was active in Band, playing clarinet and as Drum Major. Her favorite part of Band, however is Color Guard - she has spent 2 summers traveling with several corps as a color guard member.
  • Tony Bertram: Tony is no stranger, having taught lessons in our Ed Center for several years. In October of 2012, he altered his career path as a public school educator and opted for the world of retail, becoming the first Phillips Music 'drum guy'. He's an active local musician, both as a drummer and as half of a guitar/vocal duo.

  • Deborah Huntley: Deborah is the newset member of the PMC staff, having joined us in May of 2014. She's into a wide variety of music, but especially likes "anything old", including Ragtime, Big Band, and Disney. Also from Elgin, she enjoys writing poetry and playing bass guitar and ukulele in her free time.
