Steinway Grand Piano Fund

Slider Steinway 02
The New School of Music is a unique asset to our community and a high quality piano for our concert hall is a key ingredient to fulfilling the school’s mission in providing outstanding music education opportunities.

  • We believe that a new piano in the concert room will be greatly appreciated and enjoyed by the entire NSM community. Whether it is being used by students for a piano recital, teachers for a master class, or guest performers for a concert, an instrument that truly responds will bring new energy and new experiences to the school. With this in mind, the New School of Music hopes to acquire a Steinway grand piano.
  • We are glad to have your support for this project. This will be a piano that will last for generations – a truly transformative instrument allowing for musicians of all levels to develop their skills and for audience members to experience the sounds of a wonderfully balanced and versatile piano. 

Purchase a piano key and you’ll help the New School of Music acquire a rebuilt Steinway Grand Piano!

How It Works: Each of the 88 keys on a piano keyboard is assigned a dollar value

White Keys = $100 donation | Black Keys = $50 donation

Donors can purchase one or more keys – even an entire octave!
Through this fundraiser, we’ll be able to raise $7,000 for a Steinway Grand Piano for NSM’s concert room!! Help lead the way and buy a key today!

Make sure to tell us what key & the name you would like to purchase. Your donation is tax deductible to the full extent of the law. 


You can donate online through the secure Justgive.org website or mail a check, made payable to the New School of Music,
25 Lowell Street, Cambridge, MA 02138.

The New School of Music is a non-profit 501(c) (3) organization. All donations are tax-deductible.
