Not many readers here could not call themselves proud owners of the grandest one of them all, the right honorable and very grand piano, usually shined in black for its intimidating posterity on the stage in some of the grandest music halls of them all. Because it is still to this day one of the most expensive music instruments to purchase and keep. And at least they do have an upright piano. And at least there is space in which to place it.
Good to have it, and play it. But still also expensive to maintain. This is not why so many folks have given up tinkling their keys. They gave up because their ebony and ivory keys simply gave up the ghost. And what lies under the lid of that upright has also ground to a halt. Over the years, the poor old piano simply never received its rightful tuning. Many people never bought their own pianos. And the only reason why they have decided to keep them because it serves as definitive heirlooms in the household.
But this is such a waste. Would it not be nice for at least one young member of your illustrious music-loving family to be seated at that piano playing one or two of your favorite ditties. It really does not cost much to have the piano tuned you know. The piano repairing services st louis mo will tell you that the necessary tuning need not set you back more than a hundred dollars. Elsewhere in the world, it could be the same.
Only one way to find out. But to close off on the concerns over price, just think how much more challenging it is for all those centers who really could use a piano for its congregants and students.
