A generous community member from Falls Church, VA recently contacted the Academy about gifting her acoustic upright piano to a good home. If anyone is interested in accepting this gift, please contact us asap.
The piano (pictured above) is a 50-year-old (approx.) Kimball acoustic upright. The piano itself would be free of charge (to a good home); however, the recipient is required 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. As per usual, we will handle this on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please email us at email@example.com (no phone calls please) and put “Piano Available to Good Home” in the subject. 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!
UPDATE: This piano has been claimed, thank you.
