About Clemmer

Thanks for your interest in Clemmer Music!

From our humble beginnings of Joe Clemmer’s travelling guitar lessons over 50 years ago, we have grown to be the quintessential source for the beginner and expert musician in the community. Serving the greater Northern Montgomery County area, we specialize in instrument lessons, instrument sales and rentals, instrument repairs, and sheet music. It is our goal through our services to support and strengthen the musical talents, and the love of music in the community.


Where We Came From

After years of selling organs and Gibson guitars in his living room all while teaching over one-hundred students on the road, Joe Clemmer opened up the current store front on the frequently travelled Rt. 113 between Harleysville and Telford. Adding more teachers, expanding the inventory and holding regular concerts, Clemmer Music became the community center for Music. In 1980, he passed the business over to his son-in-law Harold Gahman who strengthened the repair repertoire and expanded the piano sales and inventory of the store. Harold expanded the teaching studio and continued the tradition of strengthening the musical community.

Who We Are Now

In January, 2011 Harold Gahman handed the legacy of Clemmer Music over to Nate and Abbey Orlowski. Nate and Abbey had already established a local music studio of over sixty private flute, piano and guitar students out of their own home in Telford, all while teaching at local private schools during the daytime. Abbey is an accomplished Flute and Piano player with a Bachelor’s degree from Cedarville University, and is also certified to repair professional Straubinger Flute Pads. Nate is an accomplished guitarist, being involved in playing and repairing guitars for over 15 years. Together Nate and Abbey are excited to continue the tradition of bringing the love of music to the local community through lessons, repairs, sales, and any other musical activity to strengthen the community’s musical culture.

Our History

It began in the early 1920s when Joe Clemmer, inspired by a cowboy with a guitar, travelled around the Indian Valley community teaching guitar lessons. A store front and thousands of students later, and Clemmer has become the community music store. Since then the store has passed from Harold Gahman to Nate and Abbey Orlowski. Nate and Abbey have embraced Joe Clemmer’s vision for connecting music and the community.
