Keys 4/4 Kids | Upright & Grand Pianos for Sale

Repurposing donated pianos in ways that promote the love of music, provide educational opportunities, and empower creative expression.

Piano Placement

October 2015  Twin Cities Recipient  NILS W., 8 :   "I like music because it makes me smarter. I think music helps me with math, hand-eye coordination, and memory. I want to get good at playing the piano and play it for my whole life. I want to play on a real piano because my keyboard does not have pedals and it is three octaves shorter than a real piano." 

The PIANO PLACEMENT program provides pianos to low-income families, schools, and community centers. Every month we select families or organizations throughout the Twin Cities, Chicago, and Kansas City to receive one of our higher quality acoustic pianos. The cost of the instrument, delivery, and tuning are completely waived and there are no additional fees whatsoever.

Review Process

We review complete and submitted applications to the Piano Placement program on a rolling basis. We invite who we think are the most deserving recipients to travel to our closest retail location to hand pick what we hope to be will be the piano of their dreams. An applicant not selected for the current month will be notified that the submitted application is promising and will be reconsidered for the months ongoing, or we will kindly request that the applicant reapply in six months with a stronger application.

November 2015  Kansas City   Recipient  VIANNA M., 11 :   "Piano is my passion. I love every lesson I get. One day I want to play on a real stage in front of an audience."
