How a Donated Piano Can Make New York a Better Place

Hey neighbors!!

If you live in New York, you don’t have to be told twice that it’s the greatest city in the world. Even though New York is big and beautiful, you know that it has its challenges. Many great organizations undertake incredible projects each year to improve its appearance or help clean it up. Imagine, however, a way to make New York a little prettier for tourists and New Yorkers alike while at the same time improving music education in public schools. We’ll show you how this can be done by people who donate pianos NYC.

Brightening Up the City

The idea is actually fairly simple: they simply take the used or unwanted pianos, decorate them, and turn them into works of art to make the city look a little brighter. The donated pianos will become a canvas for a local artist to transform into a public artwork. Whether it’s a busy person who takes a few seconds to stop and stare on their way to work or a tourist using it as a backdrop for a selfie, these pianos are becoming New York landmarks in their own right!

Helping Public Schools

One of the main criticisms that get levied at works of art is that they don’t do anything of value. They may be pretty, but they just take up space and don’t make the world a better place. But, what if all the pieces collected made another stop along their journey after being beautifully decorated and displayed throughout the city? And what if that stop was a public school badly in need of a piano to help with their music program? And what if that piano was re-tuned and ready to be used by students in a music class? Would that make it a rare piece of art that “does something"?

Artists Welcome

In addition to accepting donations of cash and pianos, artists who can donate their time to give the pianos a new look are always welcome. So are technicians willing to work on the pianos, and people willing to help move them from point A to point B.
These pianos not only add character and beauty to New York City, but they also provide opportunities to students who might otherwise go without. If you can donate a piano to this program in NYC, you’ll be able to feel great knowing that you made a true difference for native New Yorkers, tourists, and the next generation of great musicians alike!
