Pianolobby Sponsors Local Festivals

Pretty much everywhere nowadays there are wonderful local festivals in so many different guises. These strike me as celebration of the wealth of talent that exists in every community.

This year Pianolobby is sponsoring 3 different events in South London. 2 are piano festivals and the other is a more general Arts event.

It is open to pianist of all standards, but we are keen to support pianists at the beginning of their playing and we are sponsoring the grade 1-2 class. The festival is on Saturday 7th March.

There are art exhibitions, music in all its shapes and forms, walks, street art, discussion groups, comedy and fairs where there are bouncy castles to beer tents and food stalls to jewelry stalls. The list could go on and on. We are sponsoring an event and will keep you posted which one it is when all is confirmed.Do keep an eye open for an updated website at www.dulwichfestival.co.uk

It is run by the industrious Lorraine Liyanage who also runs the SE22 Piano School as well as so many other piano related events. Pianolobby is a proud event sponsor. The Piano Festival takes place on the 7th June at the James Allen Girls school. For more information have a look at the beautiful website which is: www.dulwichmusicfestival.co.uk

I hope to see you at these fantastic events.

Well, we have eaten our way through our turkeys, geese, sprouts, minced pies and mountains of chocolate, now onwards to clear our minds. imagesWhat better way than to play piano?





We have helped hundreds of people over the years to realise their dream and purchase a wonderful piano. Many of our customers have bought a piano for the first time, others we have helped upgrade to something better. U1X front

That new year resolution to self improvement can be to learn piano or brushing up on those piano skills. The piano repertoire is quite simply huge and learning even just a small corner of this wonderful music is quite a journey.

At Pianolobby we would like you to get going with your new years promise to yourself with our January sale.

The structure is very simple this year. Every Barber piano has a £200 discount on the listed price. Every Yamaha, Kawai, Kingsburg and Lippmann has been reduced in price by £100.

What corners are we cutting? None of them. Every piano keeps its warranty, free stool, free first tuning and free local delivery to a ground floor room.

CONCERT: CELLO & PIANO. September 20th

y3 poster UK 1It isn’t our usual thing to advertise concerts here, but we thought this would be a bit special. It is a cello and piano recital of music inspired by folk music. The concert is titled foklore & fantasy and strikes us as a very interesting concept. Folk tradition in music has always been of interest to ‘classical’ composers who skillfully manage to weave this style into their own music.

This concert is performed by a great friend of Pianolobby, who has written a blogpost about life as a freelance cellist.

For this concert, Hannah is joined by the very talented pianist Jillian Jack in this recital. Both Hannah and Jillian are both graduates of the prestigious Juilliard School of music in New York.

Details of how to get tickets are on the attached poster.

If would like more information, Hannah can be contacted on 07921 761 772 or on email to hmsloane@gmail.com

See you there!!
