Yamaha Piano Price Increase Coming July 1

Price Increase AheadIf you have been considering a new Yamaha Piano, Clavinova, Disklavier, Yamaha Silent Piano or Hybrid Piano for your home, you might want to make a decision quickly.

Gist Piano center has just learned that Yamaha’s new price list will come out on July 1 and many of your favorite instruments will see an increase.

Piano price increases are unavoidable as the cost of wood and materials goes up each year.  Fortunately, this increase will happen just after our Bellarmine University Piano Sale – so now is a great time to select a piano, save a ton of money, take advantage of Yamaha’s Summer Rebate program AND avoid the 2015 price increase on July 1.

…but make your move now.  In order for your piano purchase to qualify for the 2014 price, the piano must be in stock or must SHIP from Yamaha before July 1.  Don’t wait!  Select your Yamaha piano now before the prices go up!

The same piano will cost you hundreds more if you wait.

Traditions with a Twist

Bach

Johann Sebastian Bach was more famous as an organist during his life than he was as a composer.  He was not recognized as “One of the Greats” until after his death.

Did you know that Bach never actually wrote music for the piano?  Did you know that Mozart’s piano sounded VERY different from the pianos of today?  Did you know that today’s pianos are tuned to a totally different frequency than the ones Beethoven played?

Over the centuries, pianos have evolved as much as the music that we play on them.  …but have you ever wondered what “The Great Composers” used to hear when THEY played?

If so, you won’t want to miss Gist Piano Center’s latest Partners In Education Event:  Traditions With a Twist.

c-230_theater_galJoin us at 6:30pm on Friday, June 19 (in Louisville) or at 2:30pm on Saturday, June 20 (in Lexington).  We’re turning back the clock to enjoy some of the great classics AS THEY WERE INTENDED.  In partnership with Roland Corporation, US, our PIE Students will be using a unique instrument (the Roland C-230 Classic Keyboard) to recreate the organ sounds of Bach’s day, the harpsichord tones that Mozart listened to and the early pianofortes that characterized the first days of piano music.  You’ll hear just how different classical music was when it was the popular music of its day – and you’ll see why the people of that era loved it so!

Experience classical music the way it was meant to be and in a way ONLY Gist Piano Center can bring to you with “Traditions With a Twist.”  Admission is free and open to the public.
