Here at Newbrough Piano Studio, we partner with local community members who are willing to give their instruments to our aspiring pianists. We test each piano before it gets to the student’s home to make sure our students get the most value for free. And, just like that, they enjoy practicing playing an authentic instrument made with wood, cast iron, felt, and strings.

We offer information on moving and tuning, too. It goes without saying that playing a real piano contributes majorly to developing one’s aural skills, musicality and artistry. So far, your pianos blessed three students. This outreach program is beneficial to both the giver and the receiver. Preserving pianos is as important as preserving other objects of art and culture, e.g. books.

At the same time, Steinway pianos set the level of excellence for musicality, ear-training and performance capabilities. They are the best pianos used in many concert venues of schools in the world. We have a direct link to the Steinway Factory and can assist everyone who wants to purchase a Steinway piano. A Steinway grand piano is the instrument we use for piano instruction, too.

New interesting developments and programs are coming soon! We are accepting new students to join our studio. We are here for you to help you discover your talents and help your musical potential grow in our rigorous, instruction-rich quality environment!
