Mandy Provost grew up in Wethersfield, Connecticut. Upon graduation from high school, she attended the University of Connecticut where she graduated with a BM in Cello Performance and a BS in Music Education. Currently, she lives in South Hadley, Massachusetts with her husband of twenty years and her four teenage children.
Mandy’s musical background, like others in the store, is very extensive. She worked as a music teacher in Monson, Granby, West Springfield and Manchester for more than 10 years, and she taught private violin and cello lessons for many years. She is currently the youth and adult choir director at All Saints Episcopal Church in South Hadley, Massachusetts, she plays cello in a professional flute trio wedding ensemble, and plays an integral role in the Gerry’s Music Shop Family. Mandy mainly works in the office as a billing clerk, accounts receivable assistant, an office assistant and the rental accounts manager, but will occasionally repair and tune string instruments when the need arises. Her favorite department in our store is the office because it holds all of the organizational materials needed to help the staff to better help our customers. Mandy is particularly good at speaking with parents regarding the best musical experience for their child considering their family’s available resources. For Mandy, there are two things that really make her job worthwhile. First, she loves seeing children thrive in a musical environment, and second, she enjoys working side by side with her husband, Jim Provost, and her in-laws, Norm and Ann Provost.
