Our Growing Family
Peter “Duke” Heid founded Heid Music in 1948, selling musical instruments and encouraging schools to offer music education. He is widely credited with bringing music and music education to the Fox Cities. More than 60 years and three generations later, Heid Music is the leading music emporium in Wisconsin with music stores in Appleton (est. 1948), Green Bay (est. 1979), Madison (est. 2011), Oshkosh (est. 2010) and Wisconsin Rapids (est. 1986).
Today many members of the Heid family make their careers in the family business—Todd Heid, president; Paul Heid, past president; Kim Heid-Mantey, operations & Heid Family Foundation; Bob Heid, Heid Family Foundation and DeDe Heid, marketing director.
