Discounted hire rates on our Steinway model C piano

Making Music’s Steinway C piano, one of only four available in England, is now available for hire following a major refurbishment in June 2012.

The piano is stored and maintained by the North West Piano Centre (NWPC) based in Longsight, Manchester. The NWPC also handles the day-to-day administration of hires and booking as well as transporting the piano.

To hire the piano, simply complete the piano booking form. Before booking, please check with the NWPC first that it is available on the dates you require. Details on how to book, hire charges for members and non-members and contact information are available on the booking form. Making Music members pay a heavily discounted rate; just one of the many benefits of Making Music membership!

Our piano has been out on hire to music promoters and festivals across the North, West and Central England on a regular basis. Should you wish to discuss other opportunities for use of the piano, for example competitions, auditions, filming, weddings, please contact The Making Music Membership & Services Team.
