Mission

The goal of the Piano Performance Museum is to provide visual, audio, and educational programs documenting the musical history and technical development of the piano, an essential instrument in performance, accompaniment, and composition. After all, no musical education is complete without understanding the piano’s important role in musical development.

The Collection

The collection includes early and modern keyboard instruments including European historic pianos, as well as American pianos built in the 18th and 19th centuries. The collection shows the development of the instrument from the small piano forte, built for use in private homes and salons, to the modern piano, built for large concert halls. The collection also includes tuning tools and repair kits, some 200 years old, leather-wrapped with a place for each tool; tuning forks, hammers—everything that would allow a technician to bring a piano back to maximum performance standards.
