Piano Play is Moving - Please help

We are part of the Piano Play family. Actually, I am the mother of a student who has been at Piano Play since she was 3 years old. She is now 11. So, I, like many of you, consider Piano Play part of our family.

 Unfortunately, the Piano Play location in Sherman Oaks is being uprooted, and must move immediately. This is very hard for everyone - emotionally, physically, and most of all financially.

Due to several, unforeseen expenses associated with the physical move, Piano Play is under great financial pressure.

So, as one parent to another, I am reaching out to the special community who surround Piano Play and asking for support – to help ensure our children can continue to access and enjoy the remarkable music education and the equally important sense of community that makes Piano Play the extraordinary music center that it is.

 Please, consider making a donation, of any size.  They work so hard to support our children and help advance not only their musical skills, but their personal growth. When I consider all that they have done for each of us, even a large donation of a few hundred dollars seems small in comparison. But understandably, many may only be able to afford $10 or $20, and that too is a big gesture that when multiplied by many, can make a big difference.

Sharon of Piano Play is good at many things. Asking for, or accepting help is not among those things. Let’s show her how much we appreciate all that she has done for us and give back to her, and her exceptional family, and staff, all of whom have one simple focus, one strong commitment – to teach music to children.

To help meet the timely needs demanded by this move, we hope to reach our goal by May 15, and ask that you please donate now by clicking below.

There is no doubt, we can do this together, and make sure we let the music continue…
