Jay Tripp is the co-owner and sales manager of Schoppert’s Piano Gallery in Sioux Falls, SD. Jay believes success in life is about the relationships formed with the people he meets.  He started playing piano at the age of 9 and has been playing since.  In addition to the piano gallery, Jay is also the music/worship director at Faith United Church in Brandon and routinely writes, composes, and arranges music for his YouTube & Facebook page “Live @ 3:05” with Jay Tripp. 

Jay also recognizes the importance of giving back. He volunteers once a month playing at Sanford Hospital in Sioux Falls & Avera Prairie Center Cancer Institute in Sioux Falls.  He also works with the area hospice centers to provide concerts for families with loved ones entering hospice.  And Jay collaborates with other performers for various projects with some frequency and goes out of his way to support young artists in his community with their musical endeavors. 

Jay, however, is most proud of his amazing family: His beautiful wife Ashley; his 2 incredible boys Braeden & Donavon; and we can’t forget their 12-year old Maltese named Abby.  In his free time, Jay loves golfing, hunting, camping, and anything else that involves being together as a family.

Jay is a people person and family-focused, with music seemingly in his DNA.
