The qualities we offer are, tight pins ensuring the piano holds its tune correctly, a well maintained piano action and aesthetical appeal all of which the music student will come to appreciate as they develop their piano playing skills.

Our carefully selected Pianos have “Tight pins.” This means that the piano strings, which are held with pins inside the pianos “pin block”, are indeed being held very tightly. This ensures the piano which has been placed in a cool room and on an inside wall, will hold its tune correctly. Tight pins is where one aspect of real quality lies and can be difficult to find.

Our pianos as have good quality sound. What this means is, the tonal spectrum will vary in accordance to whether the piano is standing on a carpet or a wooden floor, or indeed both.

We had an excellent experience renting piano from Piano Hire Emil Schneider . Emil has been reasonable, responsible and professional throughout the time we rented the piano from him. The Piano we rented was in an excellent condition when it was delivered. Emil also ensured it was tuned after delivery and we never had an issue for the 18 months or more of renting.

My experience with Emil Schneider Piano hire has been very great. The process from ordering the piano to delivery and then the tuning of the piano was very efficient.

The price is reasonable, and the service is professional. I would recommend their service to anyone without any hesitation.

I learnt to play the piano and primary school but unfortunately never have access to piano in my home. When my son, aged seven, gave even a small indication of interest in learning to play the piano I was very excited. But before signing up for lessons, I knew that having a piano at home to practice allowed him to progress and sustain his interest in learning the piano.

My husband’s family were blessed with having a piano in the home and I remember fondly Sunday mornings waking up to the sound of hymns playing. And although, none of the family members are professionally trained each of them have a song that they’ve somehow perfected over the years. This is a tradition that I hope to continue in our home.

When we decided to hire a piano, we were pleasantly surprised how affordable and easy Emil made this process for us. After an initial meeting, he assisted us in not only choosing the correct piano but also finding the right position in our home for it. In less than a week we had a piano delivered to our home, beautifully tuned and we were on our way.

We thoroughly enjoy having a piano in our home, and especially enjoy it when we hear our four-year-old practising her big brother songs.

Thank you, Emil Schneider for your great service in bringing the sound of music to home.
