Our Pianos, In Their New Homes!

- From All Corners of the Globe, to Your Living Room or Hall !  -  

This is their story, one Key at a Time: 

For over 35 years, Frank and Camilles has been the largest Piano Dealer in the northeast USA! We have sold pianos in all 50 states, and have had the highest volume of instruments throughput than any other domestic dealer! 1000's of Pianos start their life in Germany, Japan, USA, and Asia, these are then brought in by us, and finally bought by countless  customers who cherish and enjoy them as much as we do. 

We are sad to see some of the best instruments leave our doors, but they quickly become loved in a new home, be it on a stage at a concert hall,  recording with artists music studio, or even a part of your living room.

 Customer Comments : 

I have been looking around to get a piano for a while and meeting Randy at Frank and Camille's ended my search. From answering all of my detailed questions patiently, to giving me all the time in the world to sample the pianos, to his obvious expertise in the area, Randy made my piano purchase really enjoyable! The Piano itself has a very nice Tenor and Bass section out of all the U3's i tried, this made all the difference as those sections of the keyboard are used most in the Music i write and play! the action is new, so it felt very responsive.

On top of this, Randy will not leave you to your own devices once your purchase is finalized - I still call him with questions that come up and he continues to ensure that I am completely satisfied with the piano. I am thrilled with my Yamaha U3, and would recommend him in a heartbeat. 5/5 stars!

Pianist Jeremy Chan 

 Customer Comments : 

"I Love this Piano! It has a really responsive action and is very clear the sound reverberates all around the room enveloping any listener in a wash of sound. When i first played it i fell in love with the tenor and bass (6 feet of strings really packs a punch!) the action was very quick and keeps up with even the most demanding music. All of my friends love it. Its a beautiful sight to see every morning as the light hits it, it is the real star of the room."

 Customer Comments : 

 

"I stumbled upon this piano dealership on a whim and I was so pleased with the service, prices, and quality of the pianos they own. I've been shopping for pianos for the past 3 months and these folks did not try to sell me the most expensive piano, or pushed other services onto me. I just told them what I was looking for and they guided me throughout the store, about 3 levels worth, to find the two pianos I was looking for. Since I bought 2 pianos that day, they gave me a great discount. I love the warm tone that this piano has, since im a singer this helps greatly! it also responds and projects clearly, the color is beautiful and matches perfectly with the house!"(Actual Review Yelp.com)

My name is Roseanna Lee Buchs, Owner of Keys to Success Piano Studio. 
My experience with them was great- from inquiring email inquiry to going to their store, trying out their pianos to finding out more about their pianos with Frank and Randy to finalizing my purchase. They are very helpful and knowledgeable with their pianos. I will recommend them to anyone looking to purchase a piano, no matter the budget.
I bought a Knabe baby grand and I love playing on this piano! 
The tone is warm and the sound is very clear. It also has a very responsive action.
It is a great addition to our studio!
 
About Our Studio :

We offer high quality one-on-one private piano lessons for children, adults, beginners, and advanced players in our studio OR in the comfort of your home. 

Not only do we teach students how to play the piano and master different skills required to play the instrument well. We also address and inspire students in their learning posture towards piano playing as well as teaching them how to perform in front of others, which we believe both are required skills in all areas of life. 

We’ve seen students who were intimidated by the stage at first and were reluctant to perform. But overtime, we worked with them and showed them how to manage their stage fright. Now, they look forward to our bi-annual recitals and don’t think twice about getting on stage.

We’ve seen another student who was shy and played quietly in her first piano performance. We worked with her in the lessons on how to combat that shyness and fear. In our recent winter recital, the way she performed…she looked like she owned the stage. Someone made a remark that she played like a different person!

These are the progress we celebrate. These are the stories we live for.

Talent is overrated- ANYONE can learn how to play the piano. Students studying with us will learn determination, self-discipline, patience, courage to learn new skills, and experience the joy of piano playing and performance.

First Lesson is Free! Space is limited, Reach out to Roseanna by following the contact info below :
