Our Institutional Department is dedicated to providing outstanding pianos and service to schools, universities, performance venues and houses of worship. We understand the needs and challenges of institutions when it comes to purchasing, leasing and servicing instruments.

Over the years, Steinway Piano Galleries has been the preferred provider of pianos and service to numerous venerable institutions such as the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Kennesaw State University, Spivey Hall and Georgia State University, to name just a few. We welcome the opportunity to speak with universities and colleges, whether interested in purchasing just a single instrument or about becoming an All-Steinway School, a mark of distinction and commitment to quality shared by only 190 institutions world-wide. This includes Mercer University, Kennesaw State University, University of Georgia, Columbus State University, Gordon State College and Spelman College.

We represent only top brands, including the family of Steinway-designed pianos - Steinway, Boston and Essex. We also offer the full line of digital pianos and keyboard labs from Roland, the world's largest and premier electronic instrument manufacturer.

We can provide a free on-site inventory analysis to best determine your needs.
