A piano often serves as the nucleus for many arts programs in a school. Not only does a quality piano serve general, choral and instrumental music, but it is also used in theater and dance programs. Just as a piano once served as the center of a family’s home, a piano magically creates a sense of unity in a school, bringing together students, teachers, parents and community members for school concerts and performances of all kinds.
