Whitehurst celebrates nearly 48 years teaching piano

Three times a week a stream of kids enter and leave Mary Whitehurst’s house for piano lessons, but many are completely unaware of the history that Whitehurst and the piano itself have. Whitehurst’s love for music began when her move to Berne in fourth grade provided a way for her to start taking piano lessons. When she was old enough to begin taking band at school, Whitehurst also began playing trombone.
