Pianos For Educational Development in Schools
IN BOTH PRIMARY & HIGHER EDUCATION
It is a proven fact that music education is critical in educational development, and provides a wide array of benefits including creative thinking, memorization, pattern recognition, and much more. So for schools with a music department, it is no surprise that they often adhere to one of the most versatile instruments in the world, the piano. No instrument is more versatile or provides the same level of artistic expression as a high level, concert ready grand piano. An instrument of this caliber also helps to encourage a level of respect for the program and shows dedication for the musical arts. Institutions who provide their students and faculty with premium level instruments prove their desire to further the arts and inspire current and future artists. The value of a high quality, concert level piano is very evident to artists and lovers of music in the community. A music program that is willing to provide fine quality pianos helps inspire students to rise to their fullest potential.
SERVING ALL LEVELS
Here at Chupp’s Piano Service we are very experienced working with both K-12 and higher education level music programs to ensure they receive pianos that fit their needs, their budgets and are of top concert quality. Any one of our restored Steinway pianos carries with it a sense of history and vitality and that translates into inspiration for the artist. We can work with you to ensure you receive service that is tailored to your specific situation.
Instrumental Goals: A piano that is purchased for institutional use will be played utilized much more than a traditional home piano. This usage can put some strain on the instrument. This means that music programs require a piano that is durable enough withstand the thousands of wandering fingers during any given school year. Higher education institutions whose goals include filling their concert halls with only the highest and purest musical sound waves, there is no way to go wrong with a restored Steinway grand piano. All in all, we can work with every type of music program imaginable, to ensure they receive a piano that is tailor fit for their specific situation.
Budget: Every music department must deal with a budget when looking to purchase new pianos. That’s why we try to work with schools to find exactly which pianos are within their price range. While learning about your goals and space, our expert team will help you find the perfect piano. Having worked with top music programs for decades, we understand how to achieve the most results utilizing the budget you have. No pushy sales people shoving pianos beyond your goals or means, simply piano experts working to place the perfect piano for your music program.
Top Concert Quality: Of course, the first two criteria above are useless without the quality behind it. The tone that is emitted from a concert grand piano should reverberate off the soundboard in such a way that it does not put a damper on the music being created. It should carry and fill the room with the greatest melodic elegance- never hindering it in any way. It is this kind of instrument quality that schools can expect from Chupp’s Pianos. We often schedule appointments at our Rebuilding Facility and Showroom so music directors and faculty can fully evaluate the quality of instruments we produce here at Chupp’s Piano Service.

Work With Experienced Piano Technicians
Beyond finding the perfect piano for their music department, it is important for schools to partner with expert piano technicians that have a solid foundation of experience, and will continue to be around to provide continued service in the future. Over the years, standard wear of the piano will accrue, and the piano may need to undergo further rebuilding. Perhaps an overly eager student damaged the piano in some way. For restored pianos, it is often a good idea to have them restored by someone who is familiar with the piano, who will also be around years in the future, should any more incidents occur. Chupp’s Piano Service has decades of experience working with institutions as well as concert pianists, and understand the nuances of tone and touch desired. Our years of piano restoration experience have allowed us to gain vast understanding in working with all brands of pianos. It is this past expertise which has and will be appreciated by the schools and institutions we work with.
