    It has been suggested that some School of Music pianos be moved to students homes during the Covid-19 shutdown if they don’t have access to a practice instrument.
    Have other institutions explored this and what are your thoughts on the subject?

    Stay Well,

    Sorry I should have specified acoustic pianos. The students all seem to have access to electronic keyboards. The thread is helpful though.

    We have a half dozen or so small grands which have been donated over the past few years that will be good candidates for loan.

    Apparently we have one student who has a grand in her apartment and is making it available to her classmates for a fee while the campus is closed.

    Thanks,
