Maybe it’s just not for you. Maybe you’ve tried, but you don’t have the time, patience, or will to learn piano. And that’s OK. Look, I firmly believe that everyone is capable of playing the piano. However, some will find that it’s just not for them, and there’s nothing wrong with that. If you’ve decided you don’t want to learn any more, or you haven’t played in years, this presents you with a big problem.
How on earth do you get rid of this piano?
If you went out and bought a brand new baby grand, I’m going to suggest that this article is not for you. You’ll be far better off selling your piano on the private market, for which you’ll probably make most of your money back. No, this article is for those that picked up a cheap upright for a few hundred dollars/pounds/euros/etc, or were learning on their grandma’s old piano that hasn’t been tuned in years. How do you get rid of this thing?
The Cold, Hard Truth
Many people who’ve had a piano in their house for years and have decided to get rid of it may think that they can just sell it privately. It’s not uncommon for pianos in private homes to be nearly 100 years old. Usually they were bought by grandparents or great grandparents when the only form of entertainment at home was to have a piano there. No TV, no radio, no computers, nothing. Only music.
Some people might be misled into thinking that because the piano is old, it’s an antique, and it’s worth something. They couldn’t be more wrong.
Now, I’m not saying old pianos are worthless. If you have a 100 year old Steinway or Bechstein that’s been properly looked after, chances are it’s worth quite a lot. However, it’s more likely that you have an old, out of tune, generic branded piano. These pianos are not worth anything. I’m sorry to burst your bubble, but a piano is not worth anything as furniture. It’s only worth money if it’s usable as an instrument. Many of these old pianos have sat neglected for years, have sticky keys, cracked soundboards, all sorts of problems that make them next to useless for a serious musician.
You’re very unlikely to be able to sell a really old piano, especially if it’s between 80 – 100 years old and hasn’t been played in a while. In fact, you will end up PAYING someone to have them take it away if you’re unlucky. Which brings me to the point of this article – how to get rid of a piano for free.
How to Get Rid of a Piano for Free
Now, you may think I’ve just said that old pianos are worthless, but that’s not quite true. They’re worthless to any serious musician. They may be just fine for a beginner or an intermediate player. So, you may find that there is someone willing to take the piano off your hands for free, but it depends on where you advertise it.
You may want to go to the local classified boards, or classified ad sites such as craigslist or Gumtree. More often than not, someone will be willing to take your piano off your hands for you. Offer it to them as sold as seen with local pickup only. First come, first serve. The first person that turns up with a truck gets to take the piano away with them.
You may also consider giving it to a local charity shop or goodwill store. This is potentially a little more challenging, as it depends on the store being large enough, coupled with the fact that they may not want to take such a large, heavy item.
However, I’ve seen all sorts of things sold in these stores, including pianos, so it may be worth trying your luck. Often the charity will come and pick it up for you if you ask them to. This is a win/win – you get the piano taken off your hands without costing you anything, and if someone purchases it in the store, the money goes to a good cause.
You may also consider websites such as pianoadoption.com, which is similar to a classified ads site, but just for pianos. There are alternatives, but this is the most famous one. However, you may find the selection limited, as people are more familiar with and therefore more likely to use sites such as craigslist, eBay, etc. Of course, if someone is willing to take it off you, someone is going to have to pay to move it. This should be the recipient of the piano; make sure you insist on it.
Despite all that’s been said, you may actually be able to extract some cash out of your piano. If it’s in working order and can hold a tune, you may be able to put it on eBay for $50 – $100, or if you’re really lucky, sell it to a local dealer. However, depending on the condition of your piano, the probability of this ranges from slightly feasible to almost zero.
If you know the condition of your piano, or really believe it’s not just worth something sentimentally, this is an avenue worth exploring. However, don’t expect big bucks. Make sure you take decent pictures, add a truthful description and price sensibly. I wrote an article about where to sell your piano that might help you out if you choose to go down this route.
As sad as it is, this is probably the most likely option for most people. If you’ve tried the other options, and nobody is interested, this may be the only way you’ll get rid of your piano. Be aware that this is probably going to cost you some money – the landfill site may charge you to get dump it, or you can potentially pay your local authority to come and collect it from you and dispose of it accordingly. There are also private companies who will come and take your piano away for you.
Sadly, as much as these old instruments hold sentimental value, they don’t have much worth beyond that. If you no longer want your piano, and you’ve tried every way you can to get someone to take it off you and keep using it, you should feel no shame for disposing of it. It’s probably existed for far beyond its’ expected life anyway.
You may live to regret getting rid of your piano. If you’re not absolutely sure you don’t want to learn, your kids/husband/wife/partner/roommate doesn’t want to learn, then keep your piano around. You might be glad you did. However, there may be better options than your 100 year old upright piano; either a new keyboard, or a new digital piano.
Do you have a piano that is sitting in your garage or a spare room that you no longer want but you are not sure how to get rid of it?
There could be multiple reasons as to why you don’t want to keep the piano— maybe you don’t want to put the effort into restoring it and bringing it back to life or you flat out just don’t want it. It is also common to have an older piano in the home and upgrade to a new one, but what to do with the old one?
Regardless, there are options in how to get rid of a piano that no longer fits your needs.
The answer is to donate your piano .
Donating your old piano is an amazing way to give back to a community, making music available to schools, kids, and families that otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford an instrument.
Process of Donating a Piano
There are plenty of different organizations all over the United States that accept old and damaged pianos.
The Snowman Foundation in Portland is one of the best outlets to donate your old piano. They will accept old, damaged and forgotten pianos and utilize their resources to restore and renew.
Once these foundations take in and restore your piano, they have multiple different ways in which your donated piano can work wonders. The foundation initially started with the lack of school funding and the realization that Portland schools needed pianos! Schools are still a top priority for donations, but they also do more focused stuff with families who have signed up to receive a piano if they cannot afford one for their children.
Piano Removal Services
Moving companies like West Coast Piano will partner with different foundations like these to help with the pickup and removal process.
If you make the call that you have a piano you want to donate, movers will be scheduled. Our professional movers then come pick up your piano and transport it to the Snowman Foundation where restoration begins. From there, it makes its way to its new home!
Piano Disposal and Recycling
Unfortunately, some pianos are too far beyond repair or restoration for them to be utilized again. There is a recycle and disposal service that it will be taken too if it is deemed not playable.
Now if you just want to get rid of your piano altogether, you can call and schedule a pickup from our movers and we take your piano off your hands to be disposed of!
Donate Your Old Piano
Donating is an amazing option that will give other children and families the opportunity to live a life with music. Pianos are expensive and can be really difficult for a family to afford and by providing an opportunity like this for a child who genuinely wants to learn is an amazing way to give back.
For more information on the Snowman Foundation, you can visit their website www.snowmanfoundation.org. You can also call West Piano Coast Moving and Storage for any disposal/donation questions that you have in regards to pianos.
Don’t pass up on a great opportunity like this to bring some magic and music into a child’s life.

We have a 100 year old player piano, a Euphona Inner Player made by
The Cable Company in Chicago. Was a high end player piano at the time and has been in our family the whole time. Original lead tubes were replaced by tubing around 1980, and some of the bellows were repaired at that time. It still operates, but needs some work again. Exterior is in great condition. Does not have an electric motor, still requires pumping.

Want to donate a piano? The Pianos For Charity program makes it easy to make a tax-deductible donation with your piano.
Alamo Music Center and YOSA announce a unique charitable partnership, Pianos for Charity. In the new program, Alamo Music Center will now accept pianos as a tax-deductible donation with proceeds directly benefitting YOSA and their mission to change kids’ lives through music. Pianos for Charity will provide a reliable way for community members to use their piano to help make a difference as a charitable donation.
The Pianos for Charity partnership has created a new opportunity for community support of the arts. Normally, IRS rules do not allow donating organizations to value non-monetary donations, like a piano. Through the collaboration between Alamo Music Center and YOSA, the monetary proceeds from the sale of a piano will be donated and tax-deductible, bringing the two music organizations together to achieve a common goal.
Your piano donation will directly help to change kids lives through music.
Since YOSA is a duly registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, you will receive documentation of your piano’s proceeds as a donation for your tax records.
We are grateful for your support! Your piano donation assists us in continuing to further our collective non-profit mission of ensuring that high-quality music education is equally available to young musicians in every neighborhood, every school, and regardless of a family’s ability to pay.
Please Fill Out The Form Below To Donate Your Piano!
“YOSA has impacted my life by giving me the tools required to succeed in many different respects.”
– Joshua, Class of 2019
Yes, you will receive your tax deduction from YOSA. Since Youth Orchestra of San Antonio (YOSA), is a duly registered, non-profit organization, exempt from taxes under the 501(c)(3) section of the Internal Revenue Code, your piano donation’s monetary proceeds sent from Alamo Music to YOSA are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
YOSA’s tax-exempt status and eligibility to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions may be verified by visiting www.irs.gov and using the Exempt Organizations Select Check Tool.
Your piano will be picked up, tuned and serviced, and ultimately sold by Alamo Music Center with proceeds being forwarded as a monetary donation to the Youth Orchestra of San Antonio (YOSA).
* Please note: D onors may deduct the full market value of their pianos (up to $5000) at tax time by submitting Form 8283 to the IRS.
There is absolutely no fee to piano donors to have their pianos removed.
Your piano will be picked up, tuned and serviced, and ultimately sold by Alamo Music Center with proceeds being forwarded as a monetary donation to the Youth Orchestra of San Antonio (YOSA).
Due to the numerous submissions we receive on a daily basis, and the fact that the submission process is very time consuming, it may take up to seven days to reply to your piano submission.
We greatly appreciate your commitment to the seven day hold period and your patience during this time.
Each piano submission is given careful consideration. The photos of both the interior and exterior of the piano that you provide help us to determine the condition of your piano. The more photos and information you provide the better. However, sometimes it is not possible to determine the piano’s condition from photos alone, and it may be necessary to schedule an in-person inspection with a piano technician to determine the actual condition of the piano.
* Please note: Pianos age much like automobiles, and in many cases, we are unable to accept pianos that are older than 30 years. However, there are always exceptions and we are always happy to look at any piano photos you care to submit.
The Music Guild offers a free service for the donation of pianos and all other musical instruments to music educators, serious music students who cannot afford an instrument to pursue their music education and other non-profit organizations in Southern California.

Birth of Piano and Instrument Adoption Program
It began with a phone call asking to donate a piano. We quickly found a school in need of a piano. Next was a call about a flute, followed by calls about a saxophone and an organ. This was the birth of our Piano & Instrument Adoption Program! We established a website and began receiving many calls that subsequently resulted in a flood of calls beyond our ability to handle in an expeditious manner. We compiled a list of schools needing pianos so we could quickly place the pianos. To date, we have found homes for more than 350 pianos and other instruments. However, the downside to all of this is that our 2½ employees are not sufficient to handle the extensive time required to effectively manage this expanding program, in addition to our other Outreach Programs and our annual 24-concert seasons.
The following are excerpts from letters by some of the schools and other beneficiaries expressing, in their own words, the great significance of the gifts:
Sel Kardan, President & CEO of The Colburn School:
“Your legendary leadership to provide homes for musical instruments makes an enduring difference in the lives of students throughout our region including students at The Colburn School. We are proud to be associated with The Music Guild. Your history of introducing world renowned artists to Los Angeles audiences is extraordinary. Additionally, you help build future audiences for music by providing access to instruments to disadvantaged inner-city grammar school children and several Los Angeles area Charter Schools.”
Valentina Martinez, Development Director, UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music:
“Your organization’s partnership in our musical instrument acquisition efforts is invaluable and plays a crucial role in sustaining The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music as a leader in music education of the highest level. In-kind contributions help us to create an environment in which students can do their best work. We applaud the work of The Music Guild and celebrate our shared missions of providing talented students with access to quality instruments for ongoing instruction – benefiting them and our audiences greatly. Thank you for helping to enhance the quality of our School of Music, making a difference for the students, scholars and community members we serve. We sincerely appreciate your sharing in our vision and helping to make it all possible.”
Dr. Christine D’Alexander, Program Director, YOLA at LACHSA:
“Many thanks for your most generous donation of a Young Chang baby grand piano to our Youth Orchestra LA (YOLA) at LA County High School for the Arts (LACHSA) program. The piano is absolutely beautiful, and we have more than 100 young musicians eager to hear it played by our staff and piano students. As a result of The Music Guild’s gift, YOLA at LACHSA has been placed our new piano to Solis Hall, our rehearsal space, and has already proven to be so useful for our choral students and teachers. Our adopted piano will assist in continuing to provide quality music education to underserved students throughout Los Angeles County.”
Walter Zooi, Executive Director, Young Musicians Foundation:
“On behalf of the Young Musicians Foundation, I would like to thank The Music Guild’s Piano and Instrument Adoption Program for your continued support of music education in schools. By connecting organizations such as ours with donors of instruments, you facilitate the growth of our programs and help students gain access to quality instruments.”
Myka Miller, Executive Director of Harmony Project, Yamaha Baby Grand Piano and Three Cecilio & Bamberger violins, bows & cases:
“On behalf of The Harmony Project, I would like to thank The Music Guild’s Piano and Instrument Adoption Program for your continued support of music education for underserved youth. By connecting organizations such as ours with donors of instruments, you facilitate the growth of our programs and help students gain access to quality instruments. Your support truly means so much. It is only because of your generosity that we are able to continue inspiring students to dream big and provide the resources they need to succeed.”
Simply put, we need significant financial assistance to maintain this very valuable and growing program. A concert lasts 1½ hours and become a lovely memory, but a piano and other instruments serves many students for years to come.
Society of Unique Artists is the originator of the nationwide piano donation program, which was established in 2004. As the innovator of this service, we pride ourselves on delivering the best quality service to our donors!
Our piano donation program has been featured in The Washington Post, and although it is now very often imitated, no one can duplicate our integrity, our ethical standards, and how highly we truly value each and everyone of our donors!
We accept piano donations from the public in all 50 states. In general (with some exceptions), pianos should not be older than 30 years. Please feel free to submit any piano for consideration.
We are a reliable and expedient source to rid yourself of your unwanted piano. We provide a seamless experience by arranging to have your piano picked-up and removed free, and at no charge to you.
Since we are a duly registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, you will receive documentation of your piano donation for your tax records.
We are grateful for your support! Your piano donation assists us in continuing to further our non-profit mission of promoting unique artists and art forms.

TO DONATE YOUR PIANO, PLEASE FILL OUT OUR DONATION FORM BELOW.
SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY – Please only submit if you intend to follow through with your piano donation to SUA.
Because the donation process involves various people and their time, we require that donors hold their pianos for 7 days after submitting the piano donation form.
Thank you for your interest in donating a piano! We are passionate about finding pianos new homes, and while we would like to accept every instrument, we must provide quality instruments that can bring a family or community organization a positive interaction in a sustainable way. Often, this means making the decision to decline a piano that is either too expensive to repair, too old, or too difficult to move. Unfortunately, we cannot usually arrange for quick pick-ups and we have a carefully considered process which includes the inspection of the piano by a qualified technician. We cannot accept organs or player pianos.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA TO DETERMINE IF YOUR PIANO MAY SUIT OUR PROGRAM.
We only accept pianos that meet the following criteria:
- In the St. Louis area
- Under 50 years old
- In very good condition
- A console or studio piano. On rare occasions we may accept a grand piano, but we cannot accept upright pianos that are more than 49 inches tall.
- Has never had a player mechanism installed
- Located on a first floor, or has access to an elevator
- Can be moved over a paved surface with few steps
- Has not been stored in a garage or non-climate controlled space
- From a non-smoking environment
If this sounds like your piano, please fill out the Piano Donation Application (you will need to find the serial number) and submit 3 photos of the piano, including a front view, an inside view, and a top view of the keys.
Getting rid of a piano on your own can be difficult. They’re heavy, hard to load, and can’t be thrown away with the rest of your garbage. So what can you do when you’re ready to part ways with your old ivory keys?
How to get rid of a piano with 1-800-GOT-JUNK?
Thankfully, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? offers a quick and convenient way to handle your piano removal and disposal. We will take great care in ensuring your piano is disposed of properly.
No matter what, our friendly, uniformed Truck Team Members will happily take a look at your piano onsite and let you know what your best disposal options are.
Piano pick up made easy
Because of the complex nature of piano disposal, there are some types of pianos that we may not be able to remove. Our friendly, uniformed truck teams will take a look at your piano onsite and let you know what your disposal options are.
How do you dispose of a broken piano?
Getting rid of your old piano is not as simple as throwing it into the trash. Pianos are large and made of materials that do not break down naturally in landfills.
Here’s how you can properly get rid of your old piano:
- Determine is your broken piano is beyond repair – if it can be fixed, it may have more value being donated.
- Check to see if your local trash or junk removal service, charities, and recycling facility accepts pianos or offers piano disposal service.
- Schedule a pickup time with piano movers.
- Clear a path for the piano movers to carry the instrument through.
Moving a piano is more than a one-person job. Your best option is to hire professionals who have the tools to handle it for you.
How do I donate or recycle a piano?
One way to dispose of an old piano is to donate it. However, the size of your piano and the condition that it is in plays a large role in whether or not an organizations will accept your donation.
There are many places that accept piano donations, including:
- Nonprofit organizations
- Social groups
- Retirement homes
- Recreation centers
- Service clubs
- Afterschool programs.
Donating to many of these organizations may be tax-deductible. Of course, there may be organizations in your area that also accept pianos in need of repair.
Can pianos be recycled?
Pianos are made of several materials, including wood, steel wire, screws, and cast iron, that can be recycled once the instrument is broken down. If you’re looking to give your piano a second chance at life, check with your local recycling centers to find out if they will accept a used piano and whether or not it will cost you money to deliver it.
How do I dismantle a piano for disposal?
If you’re getting ready to get rid of your old piano, you may want to dismantle it first for easier transportation.
We appreciate your kindness in donating your piano. Both acoustic and digital pianos are welcome.
You may choose to be named or to remain anonymous. Any additional financial assistance, eg. moving the piano, will be great gestures that will benefit the recipients further.
Your piano must be in usable condition. We are unable to accept your piano if there are problems such as sticky keys, broken strings, and out-of-tune. We can provide repair and restoration services to help you resolve the problems.
Please note that all donated pianos will become the property of ThePiano.SG.
They will be sent to beneficiaries of Pianovers Assist or be used in programmes to grow the piano community. In the event that a donated piano stays with ThePiano.SG for 6 months without being used in any project and we are not able to store it, we will donate it to a school, charitable organisation or a suitable entity, or dispose it.
to your User Account, and
- Fill up and submit the Donation Form.
As a beneficiary, you will receive free use of the pre-loved piano for 6 months.
You will only need to pay the commissioned piano mover for the moving of the piano, estimated at $150 but subject to changes depending on the final locations. For example, the piano mover might adjust the charges upwards if the piano is required to be moved up flights of stairs.
In the interest of the next beneficiary, you undertake to take utmost care when using the piano. Any new damage, including but not limited to scratches, knocks, dents, water damage and broken strings, will attract repairs, which will be billed to you. This will be waived if it is proven that the damage is due to wear and tear.

If you have a piano that you no longer want, you’re not alone. In fact, I work with many clients who face the dilemma: what to do with that old piano. There are many reasons people no longer want their pianos. For example, they downsize and can’t fit it into their new home, and the upkeep may be too expensive. Besides, we now have the option of more recent technology. People tend to prefer digital keyboards with headsets in apartment and condo complexes. If you no longer want your piano, but you want to avoid sending it to the landfill (and please do!), there are a few things to consider.
The Keys to a Good Decision
Firstly, to make a good decision about the piano’s future, determine its condition and fair market value. Hire a piano technician to inspect it. Some technicians might even be able to give you helpful information by phone if you know its brand and age and the last time you had it tuned.
The technician should be able to give you an approximate value. They can also advise you on the piano’s potential uses based on its current condition. Some of them are not good enough for experienced musicians or large venues (e.g., community centres), but they would be fine for a beginner or smaller home. If the technician says it still has some value, here are some options.
Many high-end brands are valuable, so it’s essential to do your research. Piano technicians can provide an appraisal if you want to sell it privately using classified ads. You might also consider selling it on consignment or through a local dealer who sells used pianos.
I’ve had random conversations with people who said they would take a piano if one were offered. Talk to anyone who has kids taking (or will possibly be taking) lessons. You may be delightfully surprised! Likewise, piano dealers and music teachers may be able to find a new home for your piano with a family who can’t afford to buy one.
Various groups might be interested in a donation of a good working piano. Ask at your local schools, daycare centres, social clubs, senior centres, retirement homes, or recreation centres. Don’t get discouraged if they turn down your offer. Pianos require tuning and repairs that might be beyond the budget of nonprofit agencies.
Recycle and Upcycle
If your piano needs extensive or expensive repairs, it won’t be easy to donate or give away. Even beginners need one that works and can hold a tune. The lifespan of an average piano is about 50-100 years. If yours is old and needs lots of work, prepare yourself for the disharmonious truth that your piano may not be worth donating.
However, if you are willing to put a bit of work in, you might be able to avoid sending your piano to the landfill. Piano repair technicians may be looking for ivory keys and other hard-to-find components to restore older ones. They might be willing to take your old one for parts – especially vintage brand-name pianos. Sometimes the piano’s innards are beyond salvaging. But the cabinet, especially those of older pianos (mahogany, beech, and cherry woods), can be reconstructed into beautiful furniture. Check out this video to watch The Rainbow Guys convert a $12 piano into a plant shelf. An internet search for “upcycle old piano” will reveal some fantastic transformations – into liquor cabinets, shelving units, desks, media centres, and workbenches. But you will have to do some research in your area, and that will take time – perhaps more time than you have.
Consider offering your piano on Freecycle or neighbourhood Buy Nothing groups to see if any artisans are willing to pick it up and upcycle it.
One Sour Note
Regardless of where your piano is going, you will likely pay for its removal from your home. If you’re donating your piano, hire a company that specializes in moving them. They can do the job without damaging your home or the piano.
If you decide to send your piano to the landfill, contact your local municipality to see if they offer curbside pickup for large items. Otherwise, a removal company will be able to take your piano away for you.
If you know organizations that accept pianos, please send us a note, and we’ll include them on our list of Where to Sell or Donate Items. If you’re moving, be sure to check out our move management services or book an appointment.
PIANO BANK: Utah’s Piano Adoption Program
We accept piano donations in need of minimal repair to excellent condition and place them in homes with families of dedicated students who do not have the financial means to obtain a piano. Additionally, we place pianos in public spaces to promote music-making in our community. We are committed to creating access to quality pianos, music education, and performance for youth and adults residing in Utah.
Featured in Washington Post!
“Our piano teacher directed us toward the Mundi Project and we applied and were blessed with a beautiful grand,” Jessica Lewis said. “I’m incredibly grateful to the Mundi Project for the gift of music, joy, confidence, and more that my children have received through them and the generosity of many who support them.” Diana Belka, 74, a piano teacher for five decades, is the donor of the mahogany 6-foot grand that ended up with the Lewis family. When she fulfilled her dream of acquiring a Steinway, she said she knew that the Weber grand she had bought in New York in the late 1970s deserved a happy home. “It’s wonderful to know that somebody else is enjoying it,” she said.

To begin the donation process, please fill out the following online application. If the piano seems suitable for our program, we will send one of our certified piano technicians to assess the instrument. Based on their recommendation, and the needs of the program, we will either accept or decline the piano. We do not accept organs or out-of-state pianos.
Mundi Project reserves the right to utilize piano donations in a way that best serves the overall mission to actively break down socio-economic and generational barriers by providing quality music experiences for all . Once the piano is placed, we will share with donors some information about the recipients of their piano, which may include photos, videos, and stories.
At any point during the process, applicants are welcome to direct general questions and concerns to Mundi Project Community Coordinator, Cody Goetz. He may be reached at the office: 801.487.8594 or via email: [email protected]
We look forward to receiving and reviewing your donation!

Play it Forward (SG) is a creative collaborative process and it is what makes this movement meaningful. We are looking for locally-based creative talents, including artists / designers / illustrators / architects / web designers / graphic designers and more.
There are so many ways you can be involved, so drop us an email with an introduction, your portfolio and ideas! Collaborators will receive a token honorarium for their involvement and effort.
Got a good place in mind where we can place the pianos? Is there a public space near your office or where you live that can be transformed into a gathering spot for the community bond and connect over music? Get in touch with us if you are keen to host our public pianos!
Workshop and storage space
Pianos are big instruments! We need a workshop space that is conducive for our artists to create their masterpieces and safe to store the pianos for a duration of 1 – 2 months before they move out to the rest of Singapore.
If you are a co-working space or storage company that supports creative work and local talents, join us as a Venue Partner and be an artistic incubation space for Play it Forward (SG).
Love the idea of public pianos in Singapore? You can play a part to sustain this movement and contribute to the creative transformation of this city.
We are looking for people to volunteer their time and expertise in Public Relations, Marketing, Web Design, Logistics Planning and most of all – be our Guardian Angels to keep a lookout for our public pianos and play on them too!
Non-Profit Beneficiaries and Community Sites
Know of a charity group, beneficiary, school or any non-profit institution that would benefit from a donated piano?
We are passionate about giving to the needy and sharing the joy of music.Beneficiaries can also work with the artists to co-create the pianos as a meaningful participatory art activity. Beyond the gift of an instrument, we are happy to work with the beneficiary on live performances, music lessons, masterclasses and music therapy sessions too.
Companies and Businesses
Adopt and customize a bespoke piano with us for your intended beneficiary! Your charitable contribution will give a second lease of life to an old piano and bring the joy of music to the needy and underprivileged.
Play it Forward (SG) is a non-profit movement and while we are working smart to make this a financially-sustainable initiative, the logistic cost of moving and storing pianos is the highest ticket item in our planning.
As a sponsor, you can play a part to fuel this movement. Your contribution will allow more public spaces in Singapore to be transformed with the pianos, support local creative talent, gift the joy of music to Singaporeans and do your part for charity.
We are looking for in-kind and cash sponsors to support us in this homegrown public piano movement. Sponsors can be entitled to one piano to be donated to the charity and beneficiary of their choice.

A piano can offer years of joy, creativity and entertainment for any family. However, sometimes when you buy piano you may find you want to upgrade or you just can’t see yourself ever tickling the ivories and find yourself wanting to give your piano away to someone who would truly enjoy it.
There are lots of wonderful options for those who would like to donate their instrument if you have a ‘used but usable’ piano you’d like to find a good home for but don’t have anyone specific in mind, check first in your own backyard.
Here are some great options:
- Call the Local School District
- Private Music Schools
- Private Dance Studios
- Nursing Homes
- Senior Centres
- Check with a Service Clubs or Community Centres
- Donation Centres
- And don’t forget to check even closer to home: there may be someone in your family, a child’s friend, or someone you know at work who could put the instrument to good use.
Important Considerations when Donating a Piano
One important responsibility you have if you’re donating your instrument to a non-profit organization, such as a school, is assessing its condition and establishing a “fair market value.” Donating a less-than-perfect piano is a nice thing to do, even if it needs some repair to be useful, so long as your recipient knows what he or she is getting into. Don’t saddle someone with an unusable instrument just to get it out of the house. To be on the safe (and honest) side, as well as to claim the donation on your taxes, you should have a professional assess the value of your instrument. A piano technician, salesperson, or personal property appraiser with a specialty in pianos would be able to help you.
The good news is when you donate a piano to a qualified non-profit organization, you may be able to receive a deduction off of your income taxes so be sure to ask for a donation tax receipt.
Also, there are two types of donations you can make: restricted and non-restricted. A restricted donation is where you tell the non-profit organization how they can or can’t use the piano. For instance, you may want to donate your piano to a school’s music department, to be used specifically for students. In a non-restricted donation, the non-profit group decides how it should best use the piano. This includes selling or exchanging it for the resources it needs.
Finally, you should think about your own schedule. If you need to move your piano out of its current location by a certain time, then this will pay an important factor in who you donate the piano to.
Once you’ve found a place to donate your piano, it’s a good idea to take a moment to consider the needs of the organization you are donating to. The bottom line for a non-profit organization is that it doesn’t want to accept any donation that becomes a liability. If the cost of moving a piano exceeds the fair market value of the instrument, the donation will create a liability. One way you can make it easy for the non-profit to accept your donation is to pay for the cost of the move. And Calgary Piano Movers will ensure that when we move your piano to it’s new home it’s treated care.
Even if you’re not eager for a lot of publicity or kudos, make it a point to meet the people who will be receiving the piano. Make sure they know all about how to give a piano a good home, i.e. keeping it away from windows, temperature changes, humidity, etc. Plus, it will make you feel great to know the good it’s doing.
Calgary Piano Movers offers affordable to piano moving services so when you find your piano’s next home be sure to give us a call and we’ll ensure your piano is treated with the utmost care.
Essence Starks waited excitedly for her three children to come home from school last month.
She stood inside their St. Louis living room next to a large object covered with a blanket. After they walked in, Starks whisked off the blanket, revealing a shiny upright piano — a luxury her family had wanted for years.
Get the full experience. Choose your plan ArrowRight
“Everyone started screaming and jumping up and down, and they told me it was like an early Christmas,” said Starks, 30, a single mother who works as a call center agent in St. Louis.
“It was so cool — we were really excited,” said her daughter Nevaeh Starks, a seventh-grader who plays the clarinet and has been asking to take piano lessons.
Starks said she had hoped to give Nevaeh and her siblings — Malaya, 9, and Sean, 8 — a piano years ago but she didn’t know how she would pay for it.
“It would have been really hard to buy it on my own, even with [monthly] payments,” she said. A new upright piano can start in the range of $3,500 and go way up from there.
Then several months ago, Starks was researching the cost of used pianos online and she came across a nonprofit group in St. Louis called Pianos for People.
The organization pairs donated pianos with families and community centers in need and covers the $100 to $500 cost of delivery by professional movers. Pianos for People also pays to tune the instrument.
“A free piano, I couldn’t believe it,” Starks said. She filled out an application online and learned in two weeks that a Kawai upright could be delivered to her house. She also learned that her children could take free lessons at the Pianos for People music school.
“My kids are still smiling,” she said. “It’s wonderful to hear them sit down at the piano and plunk out a tune.”
Pianos for People is among several organizations around the country that give away free pianos to families that otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford them.
The St. Louis nonprofit group was started in 2012 by Tom and Jeanne Townsend after their oldest child, Alex, a promising musician and artist, died in a car accident when he was in college.
Tom Townsend, a former St. Louis advertising executive, died in 2019 of cancer, but Jeanne Townsend, 63, still serves on the Pianos for People board of directors and said she is touched every day by the impact of her family’s legacy.
“We’ve helped hundreds of families to feel a sense of community and develop a love for music,” she said. “We’re not only giving children a chance to learn music, we’re giving pianos a second chance at life.”
While pianos have long been considered luxury items, Pianos for People receives more requests to pick up unwanted pianos than applications for free instruments, said Matt Brinkmann, the nonprofit organization’s executive director.
Many people are empty-nesters looking to downsize, and families with children often have competing interests, he said.
“People aren’t playing pianos as much as they used to,” Brinkmann, 58, said. “Often, a piano is something that has been in the family for generations, and there is a meaningful attachment to it. But people decide they want the piano to be somewhere where it’s played and appreciated.”
Gary Vaupel is one of those people. Vaupel, 65, and his wife, Barb Vaupel, decided to donate their mahogany Chickering upright in July, rather than watch it take up space in their St. Louis living room.
“We bought the piano 27 years ago for our kids, and they’re now on their own,” Gary Vaupel said. “When you get older, you wonder if you’ve given back enough in your life. We’ve been blessed with what we have, and we felt our piano would be a nice gift for another family.”
Pianos for People delivers 40 pianos a year to families that qualify for the program, Brinkmann said. About 92 percent of recipients have a household income of less than $25,000 a year, he said.
“This isn’t about turning kids into great musicians, but making them happy and better people,” he said. “A piano can be life changing.”
“Research shows that music helps kids to focus and develop social skills,” added Brinkmann, an amateur musician who once played the tuba in a brass band.
“For kids who are struggling, it can really help their self-esteem,” he said. “The most rewarding thing to me is just seeing the kids light up and take to the piano. After a few weeks of lessons, they blossom.”
Gavin-Joseph F. Webb, a high school senior in St. Louis, said the upright piano his mother Tèrré Webb acquired from Pianos for People gave him hope and comfort after the death of his father when he was 13.
“It’s really just completely saved my life,” said Gavin-Joseph, 17, who now volunteers as a teaching assistant for the nonprofit group. “Playing the piano is a stress release that takes me away from all the negative stuff that’s happening out there.”
In Salt Lake City, Ruby Chou has also seen musical success stories at the Mundi Project, a nonprofit group that has paired families with almost 300 free pianos since 2006.
“Having access to the arts certainly helps to create more well-rounded people,” said Chou, 33, the program’s executive director. “This is all about creating access to music and taking down barriers.”
For Roxie Lewis, 16, a baby grand piano donated by the Mundi Project helped her to progress to the next level in her quest to master Rachmaninoff, she said. She hopes to become a concert pianist someday.
“I love how music and playing music makes me feel, and I love being able to express myself through the piano,” said Roxie, who lives in Saratoga Springs, Utah.
“Sometimes, I don’t have words for what I am feeling, but I do have the piano,” she said.
Roxie’s mother, Jessica Lewis, contacted the Mundi Project in January 2020 when it became apparent that her daughter could benefit from a better instrument than the old piano her husband had inherited from his parents.
Three of her other children also play the piano, she said, but buying a concert-worthy grand was out of reach. Even a budget-conscious model can start at $20,000.
“Our piano teacher directed us toward the Mundi Project and we applied and were blessed with a beautiful grand,” she said. “I’m incredibly grateful to the Mundi Project for the gift of music, joy, confidence and more that my children have received through them and the generosity of many who support them.”
Diana Belka, 74, a piano teacher for five decades, is the donor of the mahogany 6-foot grand that ended up with the Lewis family. When she fulfilled her dream of acquiring a Steinway, she said she knew that the Weber grand she had bought in New York in the late 1970s deserved a happy home.
The gift of music is truly a gift that keeps on giving.
Nonprofit donates used pianos to community
One nonprofit is proving that the gift of music is truly a gift that keeps on giving.
Pianos for People in St. Louis, Missouri, is pairing donated pianos with families and community centers in need. So far, they’ve given away 329 pianos and counting.
“We want everyone to be able to experience the power of music,” Pianos for People organizer Sherry Nelson said. “Music brings people together and continues to grow and create ripples throughout our community.”
Eleven-year-old Eddy Pepper received one of those pianos. Alongside his little brother and his mother, Haley Pepper, he said the music brings him joy.
“I like the piano because it helps calm me when I’m stressed, and it’s just fun to play,” Eddy said.
His mother added that she hopes everybody has the opportunity to have music in their lives.
New pianos can often cost hundreds of dollars to thousands of dollars, and the price tag can often deter people from playing.
Eight-year-old Wesley Siemsen also received a piano from “Pianos for People.” He told “World News Tonight” he sees the piano as a new opportunity.
“I really hope everybody has a merry Christmas and can pursue their dreams,” Wesley said.
The Foley family is the latest to donate a piano to “Pianos for People.” Rob Foley said he hopes that it will be donated to someone excited to play.
“We had the hope that this lovely instrument could find a good home and be put to good use,” Foley said.
The piano is one of the most musically-accessible instruments—without a single lesson, almost everyone can play a melody on the piano. However, we recognize that piano is simultaneously one of the least accessible instruments, due to its size and expense. This pilot program aims to break down these barriers by re-homing pianos to those in need, whether they are students wishing to begin their piano journey or community spaces where live music is otherwise inaccessible.

“Now that we have a heavenly baby grand piano, life is different when hearing the soothing, beautiful melody of it. When I play on this amazing instrument, I feel like I could be playing in front of the whole Cleveland Orchestra! We really are so blessed to have this wonderful musical experience in our lives and I know I will play forever thankful to Piano Cleveland for making this musical dream come true!”
Jaina Cormack, age 10
By making a financial gift to the Piano and Keyboard Donation Program, you can help cover the cost of the initial moving and tuning costs of one piano, estimated at $400.
In the more than 40 years we have been serving the Grand Rapids Community we’ve had the privilege of providing quality pianos to many homes, schools, churches, and other organizations. As many this past year have been forced to reevaluate their careers, finances, and even life in general; we as a store have been fortunate to pull through thanks to our dedicated staff and indispensably supportive community.
Taking inspiration from the students, teachers, mothers, fathers, children, and professionals that have given life to our instruments and purpose to our work, we are reinstating Our Piano Giveaway Program.
The hope for Our Piano Giveaway Program is to help those individuals or non-profit organizations that truly deserve a piano but can’t afford one.

Pianos To The People
Armchair Samaritan is one of the only charites specializing in pianos. Pianos are something that many families would like to provide for their children, but often the expense of purchasing one new or the difficulty of moving a pre-owned piano can make it seem impossible.
That is where we step in! By filling that gap, we prolong the life of these incredibly beautiful instruments, saving them from a life of neglect, or worse, the landfill. We help foster and spread the love of music in our homes and communities.

Donating a Piano is Charity Through Music & Art
Pianos are often both; a musical instrument, and a piece of art. They often have great sentimental value and many personal stories along with them. This is one of the things that makes receiving a piano such an honor and why we do what we do. By donating your piano you will be sharing those values with others while receiving a tax deduction for your generosity and kindness. Reach out today to learn more about how we can help with your piano donation, we even offer piano storage for Denver Colorado, and free pickup of your contribution.
Pianos are the most common form of musical instrument donation. Often because of their size and level of skill needed to move them safely. We use experinced movers who make it look easy so you can be confident it is done right.
Other musical instruments
Although pianos are the most common instruments donated, we accept almost all music instruments allowing you to pass on your beloved piece to another who will love and use it once again.
