Piano teachers

Because bringing together piano students and teachers is of special concern to us, we are building up a platform for piano teachers. It should make it easier for students and teachers to find each other. It is important to us that piano students and teachers have access to good acoustic pianos and grand pianos. We offer new and secondhand pianos and any high-quality service around the piano.
