Gist is Official KYMTA Music Vendor
Piano TakeoutOn September 10, 2011, The Kentucky Music Teacher's Association board decided to appoint Gist Piano Center the official and exclusive Print Music Vendor for the 2011, 2012 and 2013 KYMTA state conferences. 

This collaboration will provide piano teachers with access to our entire selection of books, sheet music, MIDI files, audio play-a-long files, reference materials and a special discount on selected KYMTA clinic titles.  PIE Teachers who visit the Gist booth will enjoy a special discount.

This year (on Monday, October 17), Alfred Publishing Company will present two special workshops featuring Jane McGrath.  Jane will discuss "Fresh Classics:  Motivating Students while Finding Meaning" at the 10:45am program and "Practice Techniques for the Elementary and Intermediate Pianist" at the 1:30pm program.  All clinic materials will be available at the Gist Piano Center booth.

Finally, those who stop by the Gist booth will receive a unique gift.  Amber and Heather will be handing out little "takeout" boxes filled with discounts and a fortune cookie with a special "Piano Takeout" promo code.  If you visit the show, don't forget to say hello to Amber and Heather!

Gist Welcomes Heather McGriff
Gist Piano Center is thrilled to welcome Heather McGriff (and her dog, Wolfgang or "Wolfy") to our Lexington family.

Heather comes to us after recently completing her coursework for a Masters of Music Education degree (with emphasis on clarinet performance) at The University of Wisconsin.  She has over 8 years of print music experience and extensive experience in building a music education studio within a retail environment like ist. 

Heather and James worked together for several years at a major Midwest music retailer and are thrilled to be reunited as part of the Gist Piano Center family.
Heather will be our new Director of Institutional Operations.  She will head up our education initiatives, work with Amber to build the PIE program and support our print music department.
