Finding a good practice instrument and how to maintain it

Providing a quality instrument can be challenging and intimidating.  There are many, many choices available, so finding the right advice can be “instrumental” in the success of your musical adventure – whether it is for yourself, your child or your students.


If you are looking for a piano, or are shopping for a good technician to maintain your current instrument, SMTA strongly recommends that you check out the Piano Technician Guild website.  Their FAQ’s page is full of great information and expert advice:  PTG Frequently Asked Questions.


If you are an instrumental teacher (non-keyboard) you’ll receive great advice from either Amend Music or Hoffman Music.


Our two local piano dealerships, Music City Pianos and Steinway Piano Gallery are also wonderful resources for advice and information.
