Students at Western Middle School in Louisville, Kentucky will begin the 2011-2012 school year with a Yamaha digital piano lab – thanks to another partnership between Jefferson County Public Schools and local piano experts at Gist Piano Center. On Wednesday, August 17, representatives from Gist Piano Center and Jefferson County Public Schools assembled the 15-piano Yamaha digital piano lab for what turned out to be the first day of classes in the school year. The pianos, which came from another JCPS school, were brought in, unboxed and inspected for missing components before assembly.
“We were lucky that they were so well packaged,” said Tim King of JCPS. “We were only missing a few screws, some AC adaptors and a couple of stands. Thankfully, we were able to set the pianos up just in time for classes.”
