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. For more information go to www.batterseapianofestival.co.uk

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.



canstockphoto2392738 (1)Happy New Year everyone! I hope you have all had a good Christmas.

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.

canstockphoto12108892Part of our Autumn collection of pianos will be arriving very soon. We feel that these particular pianos are a bit extra special.

imagesThere are 2 Yamaha U1’s. They are everything we would expect from this excellent piano builder. These 2 pianos have been so very well looked after, you would never guess their age.

imagesThe other gem is a Kawai. We are particularly fond of Kawai pianos and it was love at first playing with this one! It too has been very well cared for, feeling and sounding really wonderful.

Kingsburg blackOur final piano on this post is a Kingsburg. We usually stock the 115 model but this one we stumbled upon is taller and has a superb sound. It will also be great value as well!!

Keep an eye open for more information. As soon as they arrive, they will get added to this site.

Too book a viewing try our calendar service. Alternatively give us a call on 020 3645 3930. We like emails too, please write to julian@pianolobby.co.uk
