Interacting with adults in this process gives kids self-assurance in society.
In providing an avenue for learning to play the piano, you will be giving your child a gift that will last a lifetime!
Playing the piano opens your home to the worlds of Beethoven and Bach, Mozart and Chopin, as well as Scott Joplin and Andrew Lloyd Weber. The list of wonderful composers and performers is endless. As you learn to play the music of these great minds, you’ll want to know more about their lives and their works. In learning about their lives, your family will learn of the history of their time and other artists of that era.

No more gambling with your piano purchase, shopping online with Craigslist, LetGo, OfferUp, etc. Our technicians have seen hundreds of these horrifying piano ownership experiences. Worst of these are the notorious “great deals” or “bargains” that all sound too good to be true, and they all seem to follow the same script: ”FREE PIANO….must move yourself”. (Oh. My. Goodness.)
Dear friends, please….PLEASE…….P L E A S E ! ! !
This is a trap:
-“you move it, it’s yours”
-“need it gone, ASAP”
-“come get it out of my basement or garage and you can have it”
We have had to deliver the bad news to WAY too many of our friends about what these piano “deals” potentially cost.
1. HEALTH – piano moving is extremely dangerous!
2. EXPENSE—what if it turns out to be junk? Suddenly, the “FREE” part is not ringing so true.
3. Have fun gambling at casinos, but not on a 400-900lb. intricately designed instrument that you and its owner know nothing to very little about.
PLEASE talk with us about owning one of our guaranteed serviceable used pianos! We stand behind every instrument we sell, and we will be happy to help you avoid this losing gamble.
We are open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, from 9am-4pm. During First Friday Weekends (the first Friday of every month & that Saturday, 9am-5pm, and also by appointment. Call us anytime, and we can get you set up with a time to come by. We want to be your piano matchmaker!
Our pianos have a wide price range, from as low as a few hundred dollars and up. Most of our inventory is priced under $1000, but you’ll not find the same selection for very long! With the massive selection of pianos we offer, people can easily find the perfect match for their needs. All of our pianos are guaranteed to be serviceable. This means that if there is any structural issue which prevents the piano from staying in tune and/or performing as it was designed, we will cheerfully exchange the piano for another of the same price, at no cost to you!
Yes, but so much more! A tuner may be able to get the strings of a piano sounding ok, but as experienced technicians, the extremely high level of product knowledge for what we sell is what sets us apart from other retail piano operations. We have the experience and know-how to diagnose and repair problems anywhere in the piano! We can help you get your piano in the best shape possible, so just imagine how the pianos we are selling will perform!
