Rockley Family Foundation 2023 Piano, Digital Piano and Violin SaleRockley Family Foundation 2023 Piano, Digital Piano and Violin Sale

The Cleveland State University School of Music has had the use of new first-class pianos and digital pianos on a no-cost basis for the 2022-2023 school year. This arrangement is provided through a partnership with the Rockley Family Foundation, a nonprofit that supports music education.

These instruments, as well as ones provided to other institutions, will be sold at a significant discount from retail pricing to perpetuate this valuable program and provide resources to the School of Music.

A large selection of grand pianos, baby grand pianos, digital player grands, vertical (upright) pianos, digital pianos, violins, violas and cellos will be available. This event will feature starter- to professional instruments from such famous makers as Yamaha, Bösendorfer, Seiler, Estonia, Pramberger, Disklavier, Clavinova, Stravari Fine Violins, a discrete selection of vintage Steinway & Sons pianos, and many others.

Most instruments are less than one-year old, include a new factory warranty, are tuned, and are ready to go. Delivery and special no-interest financing are available on-site. Moreover, in most cases, a “substantial portion” of your purchase is considered a charitable contribution to the Rockley Family Foundation and may be TAX DEDUCTIBLE.*

BY APPOINTMENT: You are invited to attend a special “private sale” on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, May 18 - 20, along with our faculty and staff. This will allow you to purchase with priority in selection and price reductions. To secure a time, please call 216-905-8261.

This event will be held on campus in the Music and Communications Building, 2001 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44115. Cleaning and social distancing protocols will be implemented to provide a safe environment for this sale.
