Steinway Piano in Shaw Library

If you wish to use the Steinway piano for a concert or some other type of musical performance please email Brian Williams at|. If you would like the piano to be tuned in advance of your event, we can arrange this via a Steinway tuner, although there is a charge for this (£85 as of March 2011). If you don’t have the piano tuned, we cannot guarantee the piano will be in tune for your event.

Please note: the piano is tuned on a fairly regular basis during the Michaelmas and Lent Terms, as it is used regularly for the lunchtime concerts and so it is highly unlikely we would insist users had to have the piano tuned during this time. Outside of these periods, if the piano has not been tuned for a significant amount of time, we may insist that a condition of use (to maintain the piano's upkeep) is that the user has the piano tuned and covers the cost. Whether or not tuning is required to be paid for by the user for the maintenance of the piano will be at the discretion of the Conference Office at all times.
