Technician-Owned & Operated

Every piano in our showroom is ready for you to play. We have the largest team of technicians in the Chicagoland area, and they tune and service each piano when it arrives, while it’s here, and before it’s delivered to your home. Affordable and reliable service, no matter what you need.

Educational Buying Process

Buying a piano shouldn’t be hard or stressful. So we never get pushy or use sales tactics to “close deals.” Instead, we focus on education. Even if only curious about piano, we’d love to give you a tour and let you play as much as you want!

Lowest Prices Guaranteed

Every piano in our showroom is clearly labeled with the lowest prices you’ll find in the Chicagoland area. And if you do find a better price, we’ll match it – and still give you our unbeatable service and guarantees.

Our Genuine Support — Forever!

Taking care of your piano and learning to play can be daunting. That’s why we include a free tuning, warranty, and free admission to our group class with every purchase. If you ever have any piano-related questions, you can call us.

Established for 15+ Years

Since opening in 2006, we’ve become one of the best-reviewed piano stores in the area. We’re genuine members of the local music community too – so we can connect you to the best instruments and resources around.

Tuning & Repair

Our experienced tuner will adjust the tension for all 200+ strings so that each is precisely the correct pitch. We use a combination of tuning-by-ear & specialized technology. For a piano that’s played by a discerning pianist, tunings should be scheduled at 6-month intervals. For most players, tunings should be scheduled at least annually.

Refurbishing Process

Our experienced staff spends significant time going through each piano, to make it sound its best, feel its best, and look its best. We also guarantee our work with a minimum of a three-year warranty. We try to stock primarily newer pianos, built in the last 10-30 years, but we do have some older pianos available as well.
