Moving My Steinway Grand Piano

My grandchildren, Jude and Truman, are learning how to play the piano.

Studying music is a wonderful way for children to develop hand-eye coordination, and discipline. Learning how to play an instrument is also lots of fun, and now that the children are four and five years old, my daughter, Alexis, thought it was the perfect time to start lessons. I decided it would be great for them to learn on my Steinway piano. It's not used nearly as much as I would like - mostly during the holidays when I host gatherings at my Bedford, New York home - having Jude and Truman play it would be so special.

Earlier this month, the piano was moved to my daughter's apartment in New York City. Pianos are one of the harder items in a household to move, considering their size, awkward shape, and bulkiness. When moving a piano, it's a good idea to enlist the help of a professional moving company. I used A. N. Piano Moving LLC. in Wayne, New Jersey. The company has been moving pianos and organs for many years. Here are some photos.
