Chip Wise served in the piano business for over fifty years and enjoyed the customers he met and the people of the music industry. During the early days of the NAMM Oral History program more interviewees suggested we interview Chip than just about anyone else. His interview took place at the NAMM Show in 2009 while he held the position of Vice President of the Schimmel Piano Company USA. At the time Chip outlined his career with a pause every now and then to ensure he mentioned the names of those who helped him with his career and those he was happy to work with over the years.
