Sherman Clay Sells Bay Area Piano Business to Steinway & Sons
Click News and Events for details
Steinway & Sons was founded by master craftsmen, trained in the best European tradition. They built their pianos one at a time, applying skills that were handed down from master to apprentice, generation after generation. We still build our pianos that way. Each Steinway grand piano, for example, takes nearly a year to create. Nothing is hurried. Even the carefully selected woods employed in the rims, tops, soundboards, and actions cure for months in our yard, kilns and conditioning rooms, until they stabilize at a rigidly specified moisture content.
Walnut Creek Selected as Best of The East Bay for Piano Stores!
Sherman Clay Piano is about more than just selling Steinways. The shop offers free introductory piano lessons and lends its elegant instruments for special school and nonprofit performances. Why? Because store manager Justin Levitt is a musician and composer with a passion for pianos. Levitt, who will be playing a dream gig at Carnegie hall next June, wants to make pianos accessible and spread his love of notes, chords, and treble clefs. He says. “You don’t have to be a concert pianist to get an instrument you’re going to love.” — Kristen Haney
