To Our Dear Friends & Neighbors:
The current situation is unprecedented. The good news is that it will end at some point, hopefully sooner than later. Along with that reality, life as we know it has changed dramatically in regard to social gatherings, team sports, concerts, religious congregations and a host of related activities that we have enjoyed for decades.
It is time to rethink our downtime and focus on staying close to home and family.
They say that often times history repeats itself; having been in the piano business for the last 40 years, I have always been amazed at the knowledge of how many pianos were sold during the 1920s and 1930s. There were over 30 piano manufacturers in Manhattan alone! And almost every household had an upright or player piano in their living room.
Playing the piano offers countless advantages. It can be easy and fun to learn with today’s technology offerings from learning programs built into some Digital pianos, to the ubiquity of online learning from professional artists to free YouTube videos. Multiple studies all agree that studying the piano is very beneficial to brain functions: it increases independent hand-eye coordination, improves cognitive functions, improves memory significantly and builds good habits like focus, perseverance, diligence and creativity. Children studying the piano do better in school; Adults and elderly people’s piano playing helps them fight off cognitive aging.
And let’s not forget the effect music has on our state of mind and emotions. Music soothes and improves our mood and mental well-being, which is so crucial to nurture these days.
Maybe you are thinking about upgrading your existing piano, purchase a new piano and take advantage of sheltering in place by taking up piano lessons (or taking it up again!). Whatever your needs are, we are here for you. The store may be closed to the public, but we are available to help you make it happen. You can call us, chat with us by clicking on the chat button at the bottom right of your screen or email us. We can even demonstrate any piano via video chat.
Our warehouse has a full inventory of Acoustic and Digital pianos at every price point, from pre-owned to recently rebuilt, refurbished, or new. And our professional piano movers are standing by to schedule a swift delivery.
Extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures: We want to extend the best offer we have ever put forward: We are discounting our entire inventory of pianos at or just above wholesale pricing. This amazing offer will remain available until we are finally able to reopen our store for normal operations.
We also have special offers for piano rentals, manufacturer’s rebates, trade-in rebates for your old piano, and special financing available.
We look forward to seeing all of you again soon.
And above all good health to you and your families
