JCPS Purchased New Roland Piano Lab
17 Roland Digitals for Lincoln School
JCPS Roland Lab
Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) and Gist Piano Center are proud to announce the historic addition of a Roland Digital Piano Lab to the newly transformed Lincoln Elementary Performing Arts School in Louisville.  While most schools across the U.S. are eliminating their music programs, JCPS is pioneering the re-inclusion of music education into the core primary and secondary school curriculums.
"Giving the students of our community every possible chance to succeed is our main focus," stated Tim King, the Director of Performing Arts for JCPS.  "Countless studies have shown that students who learn to play the piano outperform their peers on core curriculum subjects such as mathematical and scientific reasoning."
Lincoln is already realizing a 23% increase in student enrollment since the program's launch last year.  In addition to the new Roland piano lab, JCPS will be adding a new $30,000 performing arts wing to Lincoln School.
John Gist, VP of Gist Piano Center, said "We could not be more excited about our partnership with JCPS and our role in helping prepare the next generation of creative professionals for our global community."
Gist Piano Center will install the new Roland lab - along with a state-of-the-art lab conferencing system - and provide Phase 1 of teacher training on the new equipment on Wednesday, July 7.  The lab and the Roland customized curriculum will be ready for students to use this August.
Thanks for reading.  If you enjoyed this issue of Piano Monthly, let us know.  We love hearing your ideas and suggestions.  ...and, remember, if you're ever in the area, you're always welcome at Gist.  Stop by and say hello from time to time.  Until then, may the music move you.
Warmest Regards,
James Harding and Barrett Wilson
