The Piano Place proudly donated a piano to Music Shapes. Music shapes had the magnificent idea to turn this donated piano into a "street piano" but formally called Kaleidoscope Keys. so all of the piano components were weatherized and rebuilt to withstand the weather changes. Music Shapes’ founders Barrett and Derek Steinhoff, who are also piano technicians, completed this process.
Jeanne Barrett (pictured above) stated “The name of the piano is Kaleidoscope Keys. One, being an engineer, I just love geometry and spirographs and kaleidoscopes — and I have a collection of them — so it is just a fun theme to have”.

There seems to be quite a few used Steinway pianos available both in store and online these days.
Many people are asking if these used Steinway products are a good value, the answer is both yes, and no. With many variables in play.
Some people think that learning a new skill or instrument as an adult is difficult. This belief often prevents people from diving into a hobby that would bring them joy and even improve their lives.
