Have you ever thought to yourself “if the keys were just slightly smaller I could master this piece!”? That is now a problem of the past! D.S. Standard Foundation and Hailun Piano Company have partnered and created the first new acoustic upright piano with smaller sized keys!
The Piano Place is an exclusive merchant for these pianos and have them in store to play. That is how our magnificent customer, Rebecca, found out about us and drove all the way from Ohio to play one for herself and bought it that same day!
Take a brief scroll through the history and journey of the six generations of the Petrof family. We are the proud merchant for Petrof in the area and look forward to showing you their magnificent pianos. Come into our store to play and enjoy this wonderful brand.
Children benefit a lot from piano lessons. Piano lessons help mold and shape their brain to be more musical and in return help them focus better. Your child will have to hold their attention on every single note and maintain the required rhythm at the same time, its amazing!
“Why does the world need a Piano Day? For many reasons. But mostly, because it doesn’t hurt to celebrate the piano and everything around it: performers, composers, piano builders, tuners, movers and most important, the listener.” – Nils Frahm
Knowing how to play a musical instrument is a great skill to have and, believe it or not, there are many benefits your child can gain from learning piano. Here are four ways your child can benefit from learning how to play piano:
Many people these days seem to be interested in the industries heavily promoted “hybrid pianos" as an alternative to acoustic models.
Most of the instruments sold as hybrids are actually digital pianos with regular piano actions to get a closer to acoustic feel. The digital manufacturers have been improving the actions since day one to try to come as close to an acoustic experience while playing as possible, and this is the ultimate outcome.
Other than diamond rings and fine jewelry there are not many gifts that can last for years to come. Even then, they may be put in a drawer and forgotten. A gift you can give that has proven to pass the test of time is an acoustic piano.
Trying and buying a new piano directly off the off the piano store floor is a wonderful buying option. You get hands-on experience with that instrument and a great feel for how it is going to perform in your home. However, you must take into consideration that a new piano fresh from the box will change its tonal characteristics over time because of the break-in period every new piano experiences.
Help us help your students continue their learning.
Dear Piano teachers, we would like to provide a select amount of students, that you personally nominate, with one month free of lessons! Covid-19 has effected every household in the world in significant ways. In this tough time we want to make sure that all promising students are given an opportunity to continue lessons no matter the financial obstacles that may come their way.
It may sound crazy at first, and your initial response might be "I could never do that" but the best way to enjoy playing the piano and making music is to share it with others. Yes, I know most people do enjoy playing for just themselves and their own amusement. And that is great! But they would probably find it even more satisfying to play for others. Now I am not saying you should book Carnegie Hall (maybe just not now, but you never know) but as simple as immediate family members for starters. Get comfortable, graduate to extended family, then on to friends and strangers at parties and other get togethers.
How “good" of a piano should I buy is a question probably asked since Bartolomeo Cristofori made his second piano. It is actually a pretty easy question to answer with the standard "buy the best one you can afford" retort, but that seems a smug answer to the uniformed. In most cases the "uninformed" is the non-playing spouse of a player, and the non-playing parents of a student.
