Keyboard vs Acoustic?
Because we know students who learn on keyboards quit after the first year of study because they can't achieve our expectations of them, NMS has a firm no-keyboard policy after the first year of study. This includes any Yamaha Clavinova branded instrument.
New Music School is also proud to have one of Yamaha's Disklavier systems, the world's most technically advanced music-reproduction system. Capable of recording a live piano performance and playing it back exactly as performed, the instrument is extremely useful as a practice tool, as well as for opening up the possibility of long-distance piano lessons. All Yamaha grand pianos and most uprights are capable of being purchased with the Disklavier system as an option.
For more details on Yamaha pianos, please visit Yamaha's website.
If you are ready to move forward with a rental or purchase, please inform Piano Forte (at 900 N Michigan Ave, Level 6) that you are a New Music School student and/or bring the PDF of pricing with you. At NMS, we are here to help you, so please do not hesitate to involve us in the process.
