Trevor McGrew, Katy’s new store Manager, stated, “I love being a part of people becoming musicians, from helping them find their first instrument, then watching them learn to play at GC Studios lessons, to when they come back to expand their collection – it’s exciting to have that connection with customers and feel like you’ve been a part of their achieving their musical ambitions.” McGrew has been with Guitar Center since 2006 and is certified in multiple departments including Guitars, DJ Gear, Lighting & Effects, Amplifiers & Effects, Effects Pedals, and Bass.
