2012-2013: Rhapsody Arts Center conducts its “Pennies for Pianos” fundraiser to purchase five new acoustic pianos. Rhapsody hopes to become the only “all acoustic” studio in the area, improving the quality of music instruction by replacing electronic instruments. Students and their families can bring pennies and other change to Rhapsody for the piano piggy bank, a decommissioned piano that has been painted and re-purposed by Rhapsody art students and faculty. The piano piggy bank makes cool musical sounds when you drop in a coin! All donations are warmly accepted.
"Our three children have taken piano and guitar lessons at Rhapsody for more than 6 years. The instructors have consistently been of the highest quality. They take teaching seriously and are talented musicians themselves. They adjust their teaching methods and expectations to suit each individual child. We are grateful for their patience and dedication." -Ann Evensen
