Intermediate Range of Upright Pianos
for Hire and Sale

Our intermediate range of pianos suits beginner learners up to piano grade/level 6; even at that level it may not be necessary to hire a premier piano unless the player intends on hosting a concert in their lounge. Most piano teachers would teach from pianos in this range. This range includes pianos like Challen, Kemble, Knight, Otto Bach, Rippen, Zimmerman.

The pianos for hire and sale listed here are stock currently available at the time of the last weekly website update.
