My First Piano

What Your Neighbors are Saying

  • Our teacher wanted us to upgrade our keyboard but we were on a budget. Someone referred me to My First Piano and they found me a beautiful upright piano within the price range I gave them.

  • Spending quality time with our piano before we bought it definitely gave us a piece of mind about the purchase.

    – Garett Hensing, Tempe

  • We got our first piano here, it came with a six month play period which allowed us to start with an upright and later upgrade to a baby grand. Super happy with the end result.

    – Jonathan S., Goodyear, AZ

  • We purchase a Yamaha concert piano from My First Piano and it was a very positive experience. Luke and Josh are great to work with. The delivery guys were extremely careful, meticulous, and professional. I highly recommend this company.
