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—something a video game or social media can never provide. 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 270 quality pianos to people and community organizations all over the St. Louis metropolitan area. At our Free Piano School on Cherokee Street, which opened in November 2014, we provide access to over 140 regular students – a number which continues to grow, particularly with the opening of our first satellite studio in Ferguson in October 2016.
Our work has extended beyond Free Pianos and Free Piano Lessons, to free summer Piano Camps and special community-building opportunities, which bring people together around the piano. To date, we have served over 7,000 people.
Please consider making a generous tax-deductible donation to help us continue this important work.
