Department receives new Schimmel pianos

Posted on 9 February 2012

Five new Schimmel pianos for department practice rooms


Following a generous grant from the Vice Chancellor, the Music Department has purchased five more of the popular Schimmel C120 pianos from Forsyth's Music Shop, Manchester. The quality of weighting and tone in this German-built piano provides excellent preparation for performance on a concert grand. They have been toned to complement the acoustics of our practice rooms. We now have 14 of these high-quality pianos in addition to our existing keyboard instruments, all of which are available for student practice and rehearsal.
