EVERY NOTE COUNTS
We are committed to breaking down the financial and logistical barriers that prevent those who are disadvantaged from accessing the many and well-documented benefits of playing the piano.
Access to a piano provides a feeling of accomplishment through a creative outlet. This is a feeling that should never be limited to those in a certain income bracket.
“Founded in December 2012, Pianos for People delivered its first piano in our first month, and we have now sourced, serviced, and delivered over 350 quality pianos to people and community organizations all over the St. Louis metropolitan area. Our Free Piano School on Cherokee Street opened in November 2014, and our second location in Ferguson opened in October 2016. At those two locations we now engage over 200 regular students. Additionally, we have outreach programs at several schools and other locations, offering free piano classes.
Our work has also extended beyond Free Pianos and Free Piano Lessons, to free enrichment workshops, summer Piano Camps, and special community-building opportunities, which bring people together around the piano. To date, we have served over 10,000 people.”
