I am now giving away my late mother’s Krakauer Brothers “Serenade” Baby Grand Piano. She passed away at the age of 97 in late October of last year and while I originally wanted to sell it am putting it up for FREE since I am getting set to move and can’t take it with me and I want to save it from the dumpster.

I am trying to re-home both her sheet music and music book library as well as her Krakauer Brothers Baby Grand Piano.

A fully restored piano like like this can run $15,000 but this is not that piano. My mother bought it used in the early 2000s for $8,000 to replace her 65 year old Fisher Baby Grand that was damaged beyond repair by bad repair done by an unqualified repair man and she used it for around the next 29 years.

Reduced from $2,000 to FREE

I was originally looking to sell it for $2,000 this summer and early fall but time has run out and I need to move it out.

It needs to be professionally moved and then tuned and it has stuck key that needs to be repaired (a simple easy fix for a qualified tuner/repairman/woman) I am moving on Jan1st and I would love to keep it but I don’t have the space or play the piano myself. My mom brought me up as a trumpet player, then baritone horn, then tuba player.

Just think what a great X-Mas present or Hanukkah gift it would make for some kid!

My late mother taught voice and music privately for decades in Chappaqua and Katonah NY area.  She was the oldest teacher in the Chappaqua School System when she finally retired from the school system there. After that “retirement” she then kept on teaching students privately in their homes and our home in Katonah NY until she turned 90 and her crippling arthritis became too much for her to go on and we moved up here to Avon (I had a brother that lived locally here that could help me take care of her from time to time).

I will also have to find a new home (or homes) for her extensive sheet music, music book, and musical score library (in the file cabinet behind the piano) so if you’re interested in that or know of a music teaching professional that could use it let me know or pass it on.
