WEST MUSIC COMPANY WELCOMES RANDY HARGIS

CORALVILLE, IOWA; JANUARY 5, 2011 - On January 3, West Music Company welcomed Randy Hargis as the newest Educational Consultant for their Music Education Division.  Hargis comes to West Music from Rhythm Band Instruments, where he was a District Sales Manager for the past six years.  Prior to RBI, Hargis was a Marketing Manager with Akai Musical Instruments.  Hargis, who will be based in Dallas, will work closely with Texas area music educators and administrators to assist them in selecting the best products to support their general music and early childhood curriculums.  

Hargis stated that he has “been a big fan of West Music for many years and is proud to be joining an organization that is so passionate about making life long music makers.  I am looking forward to being in the West Music booth with the rest of the team at the upcoming Texas Music Educators conference in early February.” Hargis, a percussionist himself, also said “the only thing better than seeing the expression on a child’s face when they “get it”, is the look on the teacher’s face that helped them get there.”  West Music President Robin Walenta said “West Music is very excited that Randy has joined our expanding team of consultants.  His years of experience and vast knowledge of music education products reinforces our commitment to classroom education.”

West Music was founded in 1941 by Pearl and Eleanor West.  What started as a one-room retail and repair shop has grown over the past 67 years to include six full-service locations in Iowa and western Illinois.  West Music offers a full complement of musical instruments and accessories, instrument repairs, and extensive lesson programs and is ranked among the Top 25 music retailers nationally.  The national and international divisions of West Music specialize in supporting general music and early childhood programs throughout the United States and globally, music therapy services and professional percussion, flutes and piccolos.  For more information about West Music, please visit www.westmusic.com or call 1-800-373-2000.
