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 kids have really enjoyed taking piano lessons at Rhapsody. They also like the performance opportunities and the Ensemble classes offered throughout the year. The talented teachers are patient and make the lessons fun. We appreciate how motivated our kids are to play and have enjoyed watching them improve!” -Karen McCartney
