Paul Winther took over his parent’s music store in Boise, Idaho, which was opened in 1943.  Paul enjoyed the selling side of the business, especially selling pianos and organs.  Paul took great pride in the fact that his son Greg came into the business and would run the store after his retirement.  Paul would later team with his grandson to create a piano teaching method called Easy Keys, which was based on the simple goal to provide a visual way for students to learn how to make music. Paul passed away from Covid-19 in December 2020 at the age of 96.
