A generous family from Herndon, VA recently contacted the Academy about gifting their Kranich and Bach (model 452) piano to a good home. There is one missing knob on the key cover. If anyone is interested in accepting this gift, please contact us ASAP.
The piano is approximately 42 years old and is free of charge (to a good home); however, the family requests the recipient to pay for the moving expense, which averages around $250-300 (when using a professional piano moving company) depending on the distance traveled, number of stairs involved, etc. Also, acoustic pianos usually require a tuning from a professional piano tuner after a move as well.
If you think you have a need (and a space) for this piano, it’s a great opportunity to look into. We will handle this on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org (no phone calls please) and put “Piano Available to Good Home” in the subject (or simply Reply to the Newsletter email). A recipient will be matched as soon as possible.
Please note that these opportunities typically come up several times throughout the year, so keep checking the Academy Newsletter!
