The award was presented to the musical instrument retailer at the 2014 NAMM music products show held in Anaheim, California. They join eight other retailers honored by Yamaha at the event.

Yamaha recognized Greene Music for its outstanding sales and marketing success with Yamaha Pianos, Disklaviers, Hybrid Pianos and Clavinovas.

Accepting the award for merchandising and presentation from Yamaha Keyboard division top management was Greene Music owner Mike Greene and General Manager, Richard Sibley.

“Greene Music is a consummate Yamaha representative. Last year, we launched a new merchandising strategy that incorporated in-store video, sales presentations using Apple iPads and Apple TV. Greene Music jumped all over it. Their success this last year speaks for itself,” said Bob Heller, national sales director, Keyboard Division, Yamaha Corporation of America. “We’re very proud of our relationship with the team at Greene.”

“This award is particularly meaningful to us, since we strive to provide the best service in the business,” said Mr. Greene. “Yamaha Instruments are not just ordinary products, but world class, innovative musical instruments that excite and motivate their lucky owners to use, enjoy and reap the benefits of piano playing.”
