LOUISVILLE, Ky., Dec. 6 – If you play the piano and you’re looking for a unique gift for someone on your list this year, you might want to visit Gist Piano Center. As part of Gist Piano Center’s 40th Anniversary Celebration, Gist is inviting local piano students to record their very own Christmas albums on state-of-the-art Roland digital pianos. The recordings will be burned to CD in full digital stereo quality, labeled and given to the performers while they wait.

“Christmas is a time of giving,” said James Harding, Director of Marketing at Gist, “and there’s no better than music – especially music you made with your own two hands.”

Gist Piano Center will offer students of all ages the opportunity to record their favorite Holiday music and produce a professional-grade CD from Monday, December 5 through Christmas Eve. Members of Gist’s Partners In Education Program (PIE) may record their CDs for FREE. The charge for non-members will be $20 per CD. Interested parties may contact Heather McGriff at or call (502) 451-1831.
