“At nine, I decided I wanted to take piano. My mother found a teacher through Heid Music (…) This single decision was life-changing as I’m now a high school student at Interlochen Arts Academy majoring in piano. Heid Music continues to be part of my journey. Through their expertise, I’ve received quality instruction, found the “perfect” piano and learned the importance of giving to the community by getting involved with various fundraisers and sharing piano music. Thanks to Heid Music for helping me realize that piano isn’t something I do, it’s something I am!” - Quin Nennig, Heid Yamaha Music School Graduate
