Grace Music School’s core mission is to provide music lessons of the highest quality and multiple performance opportunities for our students throughout the year. We decided early on not to sell retail from our schools since we felt this would distract us from our core mission, and could compromise the quality of our music lesson program.
We believe this, among other reasons, differentiates us from music retail stores that provide music lessons as a secondary business. At the same time, we recognize our students need quality instruments to play on and that we needed to facilitate the rental or purchase of the same. To this end we have established relationships with the world’s greatest piano maker, Steinway & Sons, and Long Island’s premier strings store, The Long Island Violin Shop. Please see below for more information about these fine company’s, or one of our office staff for more information.
For more than a century and a half, the world’s most accomplished pianists have preferred to express their musical genius on Steinway & Sons pianos. The list includes the giants in classical, jazz, and popular music; the men and women who have shaped the world’s musical heritage. Since Grace Music School has the distinction of being a “Steinway Education Partner,” students coming from our school receive a discounted rental rate for Steinway and Steinway Designed Pianos.
It is strongly recommended that students studying piano learn on a good quality acoustic instrument versus a keyboard, to help ensure they develop the correct technique, sound sensitivity and touch. The Steinway rental program allows students to rent a Steinway or Steinway Designed Piano at very reasonable monthly payments with rental payments being applied towards the purchase of the piano should it be purchased.
Grace Music School has partnered with the Long Island Violin Shop entitling our students to a rental discount. Their rental program is an ideal solution for both beginners and older students. For a modest monthly payment, you are provided with a high quality instrument outfit and receive full credit towards a future purchase. They offer service second to none and terms more generous than comparable alternative.
You will also be served by violin experts, who solve problems and anticipate all your needs. Click here to visit their website. Grace Students who rent an instrument online will get four months for the price of three by signing up and completing their order online. You may select in-store pick-up for free, or standard shipping if you want it sent to your home.
