Oral History Information
Sheilah McDowell is a saleswoman and Lowrey class instructor at Piano Craft in Springfield, Missouri. Her passion for the industry goes back to the days she first met her husband, Jim McDowell, and worked in his family's music store in St. Louis. She traveled the country with Fred Waring playing organ and later traveled to music stores as a product specialist and performer. Teaching the Lowrey classes in the store has been particularly rewarding for Sheilah because of the joy she sees music bringing into the lives of her students.
