We need to have our piano tuned/repaired. Who do you recommend?
 
We use Martin J Evans of Rogerstone, Newport. He can be contacted on 01633 669502.      
 
 
We want to buy a Violin. Where can we find one?

We can supply Violin's directly to you, to save you shopping around.
Let us know your budget and we can do the rest.
 
 
Please don't buy a Violin for your child/yourself before taking professional advice - 

Our advice is FREE, give us a call.

You may buy the wrong size or a poor quality instrument and you may end up buying twice!
 
We want an Electric/Digital Piano. Where can we buy one?
 
Please visit Gardner's - The Piano Specialists in Cardiff. 
 
Contact Jeff or Melanie on 029 2062 3423 for current prices & stock availability. 
 
 
We want to buy an acoustic Piano. Where can we find one?
 
Again, the advice would be to visit a shop to get first hand advice, not online. 
 
For expert & friendly advice, we recommend Gardner's - The Piano Specialists in North Road, 
Cardiff. Prices vary, so it would be best to contact them directly to see if they have anything to suit your budget. 
New & second hand piano's are available. 
 
Does an acoustic Piano take a lot of caring for?
 
 
An acoustic Piano takes more care than a digital and should be tuned about once a year,
more often if you are an accomplished pianist, studying the higher grades. 
 
The cost of tuning/servicing is around £55 - £65
 
Ensure you have adequate space for an acoustic Piano which allows you to keep it away 
from a radiator and direct sunlight, as this can affect its performance,
 including the instrument going out of tune easily and more often. 
 
 
If there are any questions we have not covered here, please get in touch.
