The PIANO PLACEMENT program provides pianos to low-income families, schools, and community centers. Every month we select families or organizations throughout the Twin Cities, Chicago, and Kansas City to receive one of our higher quality acoustic pianos. The cost of the instrument, delivery, and tuning are completely waived and there are no additional fees whatsoever.
We review complete and submitted applications to the Piano Placement program on a rolling basis. We invite who we think are the most deserving recipients to travel to our closest retail location to hand pick what we hope to be will be the piano of their dreams. An applicant not selected for the current month will be notified that the submitted application is promising and will be reconsidered for the months ongoing, or we will kindly request that the applicant reapply in six months with a stronger application.
