Oral History Information
Muriel Long began teaching piano in 1959 and since that time two things have been very clear to those who know her, she is a passionate music maker and a heck of a salesperson! She grew up playing the Hammond and found that even as a teenager, she loved teaching music! While giving lessons at a piano store in Southern California, she was asked to help with a store sale. The rest is history as her talent selling soon earned her the respect of many manufacturers including Baldwin and Lowrey. Muriel played a key role in the success of the Lowrey Organ Program, which was rolled out to many retailers throughout the United States.
