Comments and Questions

Dear Graham
Thank you for your kind invitation, unfortunately will not be able to attend as we have a prior engagement. We would have attended as I am
dabbling with a guitar and Gill is enjoying her Roland piano and would have appreciated a demonstration.
Maybe Finchley is bit far from St Albans for guitar lessons but we will call into your new premises and wish you every success.

Kind regards
David and Gill

Reply/ Hi David

Thanks for letting me know.

It is in addition to our Enfield store.

Hi Graham

Thank you for the invitation.  Unfortunately I will not be able to come on Friday but my wife and 2 daughters are hoping to come and visit your shop.  They are music lovers and will enjoy the live jazz band and the free guitar lessons.  Do they just turn up on the day or do they need an invitation?

Kind regards
Royce

Reply/ Hi Royce

There is no need to book.
They can just turn up any time.

Kind regards
Graham

Hi Graham,

We will hopefully pop down towards the end of the day (after work).

Interested in how the free piano lessons work, isi it just a turn up thing or can we book a slot towards the end of the day?

Cheers

Adam

Reply/ Hi Adam

There will be teachers there until 8pm, so just turn up any time.

Hope to see you on Friday.

Hi Graham
I would dearly love to attend the opening of your new store but unfortunately I am otherwise engaged on that day. I do not live in or near London – I live in the frozen north (Carlisle, Cumbria) – but do visit my son, who is a doctor in London, several times a year, and will make a point of visiting your store on my next stay.
I am very much a beginner as far as piano playing is concerned and quite possibly too old to begin doing so – but it is a lifelong ambition and as I am now retired I have the time to devote to it. I have a Yamaha YDP 131 which I bought from a local music store last year but will definitely upgrade if I make the progress I am aiming at.
Thank you for your help and for the invite.
Warm regards
John

Dear Graham,
The Yamaha dealer in Istanbul offered some really favourable rates for CLP535 and I have made a downpayment.
Thank you for all the advice you ve provided but the distance is far too big for us to have a transaction. If not my business, you have won my (and many other piano enhusiast’s) appreciation and heart.

Congrats on your new shop at Finchley, will try to visit next time I am in London.

All the best
HY

I live a long way from London, so I will not be able to attend. I hope it all goes well. Carolyn

Thanks for the invite, Graham, but we can’t make it. However you will be delighted to hear that Olga is having regular lessons locally and has been delighted with the piano you sold her. Thank you

Best wishes

Stephen

Good luck with your new venture!

Thank you for the invitation, which sadly I can't take up due to my commitments here.
I'm sure the afternoon will go well for you!

Best wishes, Jan

Hi Graham

Thank you very much for your invitation. I am sorry to say that I will not be in UK on Friday but I wish your opening every success.

Yours
David

Hi Graham,

Thank you for sending this across!

I would absolutely love to attend this. The only issue is that I work in Reigate (but not for long :-))

I will try and get there as early as possible so I think realistically this will be around 6:30pm. It is a shame I will miss most of the event on the day though.

I just brought a piano a few months ago, a Yamaha YDP142 but in need of lessons so to see that these are £9 per hour is amazing as I am being quoted around £30 per 1/2 hour. Can I confirm if there is any limitations to this and what the times are of these lessons?

Also, can I bring a friend or two to the event?

Looking forward to this and so happy that this is happening!

Kind Regards
Havva

Hello Howard,
Thank you for the invitation, but I can't make it.
Hope it goes off well.
Regards, Richard

Will you have a Roland RG3F that I could take a look at?  I currently own an RG1F but am considering an upgrade.

Hi Graham,

Very kind of you, but I'm working in Borneo, at present so a bit far! 🙂

Hope all goes well.

Best wishes,

Steve

Hi Graham,

Thanks for the invitation but unfortunately I won’t be able to attend. Maybe some other time.

All the best,

Juli

Thanks but unfortunately I live in Manchester

Dear Graham,
Thankyou very much for the invite, but London is a little far for me to travel. Best of luck with the new store.
Regards,
Steven

Thanks for the invite but I won't be able to make make it.  I now have a taker for my existing piano so I will be ordering a HP508 soon. However I've just been made redundant so it will have to wait until I get my settlement. The good news is I will have more time to play it.

Many thanks for the invite Graham. If I lived anywhere near I would like
to be there. Unfortunately, Helston in Cornwall is a six hour drive.

Your emails are still much appreciated though.

Kind regards and I wish you every success for the shop and music school.

David

ha! my old hunting ground 🙂
sadly, now I live in bishops stortford it’s a bit of an effort to visit north london unless someone is offering chicken soup or a gig

pete

Hi Graham,

Although I will not be able to attend, I wish best to UK Pianos for the success of this new shop.
I am extremely happy to hear that you are expanding business.

On my end, I am practicing F major and B flat major on my piano, and trying couple of simple songs…

Best regards,

Feridun

Thanks Graham
Do you have a selection of keyboards on show?
Thx
Steve

Reply/ Hi Steve

Yes, we have some keyboards on display.
You can see the list here: http://www.ukpianos.co.uk/uk-pianos-showroom

Kind regards
Graham

Hi Graham,

Thank you for the invitation.

Will you have a Roland DP90SE the opening day? I haven't been able to locate one to try out.

Thanks
Jennifer

Reply/ Hi Jennifer

We don’t have the DP90SE on display, but we
do have the HP508 on display.

The HP508 has the exact same key touch as the DP90SE…
so you will be able to try out how it feels.

The sound of the DP90SE is similar, but not as full
as resonant as the HP508.

Hope to see you there.

Regards
Graham

Dear Graham,

Thanks you for the invitation but unfortunately I am abroad at present and will not be back in UK until April.

Martin

add to finchley store comments

Hi Graham: I do appreciate the invitation, but I do have other commitments, I say to you, keep in touch, business is not doing so good in the states with piano sales.
There are quite a few piano stores closing, do too digital keyboard sales. They get better and better, losing more mom and pop operations. Good luck this year and keep in touch. Rich

I appreciate the invite but unfortunately it's quite the travel and I wont be able to make it.  

Keren

wish I did not live so far away

All the best with your new shop.

Fraser

Hi Graham,
Thank you for your invitation but we shall be away on Friday.
May we wish you every success with your new store, it will be great!
Marian

Thanks for the invite but I am living in Spain, Alan

Thank you for the invitation.  I would love to have had the opportunity, as I am still trying to decide on a digital piano.  
However I live too far away to make the journey at such short notice, as I would have to stay overnight in London on Friday night and am now committed at home on Saturday and wouldn't be able to get back in time.
 
Hope it goes well!
Isabel

This sounds like a wonderful day Graham.  Thanks very much for the invite which sadly, I will not be able to accept as this is a normal working day for me.  
However, perhaps we can drop into the store the next time we are up the Big Smoke.
 
Hope everything goes well
kind regards
Hilary
 

Hello

Thank you very much for the invitation but it's a bit of a long way to come.  We are very pleased with the piano and bought the right model for our requirements.

I hope the open day goes well.

Philippa

Thanks Graham but am out of the country in that day. Regards Martin

Hi Graham,
 
Thank you for your invitation.  It looks like it’s going to be a great day.  Congratulations on your new shop.  Unfortunately I cannot be there, as we live in West Dorset and I am already committed for the day.
 
Best wishes for much success,
 
Chris

Hi Graham,

Thanks for the invite to the grand opening of the new shop this Friday.  
Unfortunately I will not be able to attend but I wish the venture well and hope it encourages lots of people to continue buying pianos of all kinds, including the excellent Roland F20.

Regards,
Tony

Hi Graham,

Thanks Graham, but I work every day and am many miles away anyway.  Tom is still enjoying your piano to practice on in the small hours but also delights in using  real ones when he gets the opportunity!!  
When it is worn out I expect we will be back again.

Kind regards

Thirza

Hello Graham

Thanks very much for your invitation and congratulations on the new shop and music school.  Unfortunately I won't be able to be there – but best of luck!  Penny

Unfortunately I am at the moment laid low with a very bad cold, also I do not need a piano as I have just purchased a Tyros five, a waste of money really as I exchanged it for a low mileage tyros 4 special edition,
anyhow nice to think of a new music shop opening,I wish you all the best in the struggle ahead, Vic.

Hi Graham,

We won't be able to make it, but wish you all the best with the opening of the new shop!

Hi Graham,
If I lived in Mill Hill, which I did for 47 years, I would have been there, but now in Dorset I just have to wish you Good Luck on the opening.
Don't worry I am still hoping to purchase a piano one day!
Regrds, Brenda

Thanks for asking but I am afraid I am not available. Good luck with the new shop/music school.

Nick

Hi Graham,

Thank you. I'm actually playing the piano right now. It's a fantastic instrument, very glad I bought it. And thank you for getting that screw sent over by the way.

North Finchley is pretty far from Sutton, so I doubt I will be able to make it. But thank you all the same for the invitation.

Have a good one, and keep spreading the love of music around!

Roni

Dear Graham

Thank you for the invitation but unfortunately I have other commitments this Friday.  I am sure that the new shop will be a great success and hope you have a great evening on Friday.

I’d love to come but I live in Australia.

Thank you for your website and document.  It helped me greatly with identifying key things in a digital piano that I needed to know.  I ended up buying a Yamaha Clavinova CLP 430.  You need a piano with a touch keyboard definitely.

Hi,
 thanks for invitation though I am not in UK but South Sudan,
however I really appreciated the fact that we are in the same field remember I told you last year that I have opened a music School which was an inspiration that came from non other than you.

I wish we will be closely in touch with that music school for exchange of ideas.
I feel it like my sister company, no no sure you made me love music with the online piano lessons you gave me, I am quite good enough now.

You may remember I was actually buying the piano for a disabled friend who had just moved into supported in Aberdeen. The service we got from your company was great and my friend continues to get a lot of pleasure from his piano.

I wish you every success with your new shop. Please let me know of any special offers. Just in case I hear of anyone else looking…..please not a flood of many emails though!

Hi Graham,

Thank you very much for the invitation! I am sorry but I am not able to come due to other commitments.

However I am interested in second hand pianos in good condition. I am donating them to talented children in disadvantaged situation in Bulgaria. Also I'm working on a project to bring English-speaking teachers to teach the children to play piano in Petrich District, Bulgaria. It's going to be not-for-profit organisation as the main aim is to get together willing teachers to teach and talented children to learn from them. There are able children without parents living in orphanage who can create music in the future or at least become pianists. I know their stories and their potential. There are many unfolded genetically talented children over there. Should you have any ideas we can meet and discuss and why not to collaborate in the future. The cause is great and I am not lead by any profits. The profit is going to be these children becoming artists despite their sad stories. For the teachers these adventurous opportunities could become life-changing stories. I can't stop thinking about this!

The piano that I bought is very good and my daughters enjoy playing on it. I enjoy the melodies coming from the movements of these little fingers. I am happy. I am sorry I didn't leave any feedback but please write from my name that you are great piano people with great customer service!

Thank you!

Kind regards,

Angelina

Thank you for the invitation, unfortunately I can't make it. Hope the opening goes well.

Dear Graham:

Thank you for the lovely invitation!!

I wished that were possible, but I live in the United States, on the Massachusetts North Shore, where we have gotten an 87 inch snow accumulation, the most we have ever gotten in history, and it resembles "The Ice Age", the science fiction film!!

I always love to come and play pianos, as that is my driving force!! If there is anything in this area in the future, please let me know, as I live a little over an hour north of Boston.

Peace be with you, and may GOD love, light, bless, and speed always!!

Love in GOD & Music!! Bonnie

Hi Graham,thanks for letting me know. I am unable to be there but I hope the business is a great success & you have a wonderful evening.

Hi Graham!
Thank-you for inviting me;
I`m honored;
However, due to the distance I have to decline your invitation;
I guess you have no clue – but I live in Bucharest/ Romania and I visited London ( for 10 days) just last year;
Anyway- i`m not that “visitor” kind -your press and media newspapers describe as being Romanian- but, probably- the opposite one;
maybe ill need your advice for a Music College in a few years ( my daughter is now in the 5-th grade- but we have to think already her path in live – right?!);
For this year I already signed for her participation to The 5th International Competition “Youth Academy Award 2015” in Rome- this June ( between 01st – to 07th of June) and,
seeing what`s the amount of money will remains in the pockets, probably she will participate in August at the Annual Windsor International Piano Competition ( mid of July);
If we'll have another 2000 pound to spend for this one- for sure we'll visiting you at the store ( presuming that between 12-20 of July you`re not in Holiday somewhere)
But since then – It only remains-me to wish you all the best and have a good and wealthy business;

Yours,
Gabrie

Hi Graham,
Thank you for invite.Sorry, I can't be there, I have work commitments. I wish you all the best. Hope it goes well.

Dear UK Pianos,

If I could I would accept your invitation for this Friday, but I shall be on a singing course.  Later, next week, I shall be in London and will see if time is available to call in.  

You have been asking if I found your online book useful.  Yes I did; it was clear and very informative; it performed a very useful function.  

I hope your opening day goes well,

 Kind regards,

Owen

Hi Graham,
I hope you're Grand Opening event goes well! I don't live anywhere near, but I wish you all the best with your new venture.

Hi Graham.

Thank you so much for the invitation.
It sounds really lovely and I truly wish I could come but it is my daughter's birthday this Friday and she is coming from Nottingham to celebrate it with us , so I can only hope that there will be another opportunity for visiting your new shop.

Congratulations and the very best wishes for the most enjoyable and successful day

Kind regards

Hope all goes well.

Thanks

Hi,

Aren't you just an affiliate for Thomann?

Reply/ Hi Ray

No, we aren’t an affiliate for Thomann.

We have 3 pianos stores and Music Schools in London
and are authorised retailers for Yamaha, Roland, Casio,
Korg and Kurzweil pianos.

Hi Graham
 
Unfortunately I won’t be able to make it but I hope everything goes well.
 
I’m getting on really well with the HP504 and making good progress with the Piano Marvel online course, so thanks again for your advice.
 
Best wishes for the new shop and school.

Chris

Just a little bit far to travel

Robert from USA

Dear graham,

Thank you for the invite it is appreciated.

I am working in Sweden at the moment so will not be available.

My CVP605 is fantastic – I don't know how I managed to compose  new music without it.

Kind Regards Paul

Dear Graham
What a lovely day, Friday promises to be!  I would love to be there, but unfortunately, I am too far away to get there after work.  It is also too expensive  for me at the moment.
 
I have not bought an electric piano yet.  I will not be able afford it  until half way through 2016 due to existing financial strictures which will end hopefully in August.
 
I am very interested in the hire to buy offer.
 
I am getting confused with all the information which I have to bare in mind, before I buy, so I think a trial sounds like a great idea.
 
 
I have to bare in miind the fact that I live on the first floor of a block of flats, and that it may be difficult to actually get an electric organ, resembling a piece of furniture around the corners  
into the Sitting Room, where I want it.  I most certainly don't want a keyboard on a metal stand though.
 
I am just researching what is available until I can afford to buy.
 
Kind regards,
 
Angela

Many thanks but we do not live in the area.

Regards

Paul

Thanks for getting in touch. If I can't make it I will definite be in touch soon as I need to make a purchase of a weighted keyboard in mid March and I will be starting my research in a few days

Hi Graham
Thank you for the invite,it is very kind of you.
My life has changed somewhat and I am now living in France, having brought my piano with me
So I am unable to attend, but Thank you any way.
Best regards
Judy.

Thanks for the thought. Can't make it – good luck with the venture. Kids enjoying their Yamaha.

Greg

Hello Graham,
Thank you for the invitation to what I am sure will be an interesting event and I would have attended if I had been in England, but as I live on an island off the west coast of Sweden it is impractical.  As a former pianist and musical director in a number of night clubs in the north of England I have more than a passing interest in your business and assure you of a visit the next time I am in Kensal Rise to visit my son and his family.
 
As a matter of interest I keep in touch and regularly re-live accompanying artists on Spotify many of whom I worked with in the clubs during the 50's and 60's, the versatility of my Yamaha CVP405 is incredible and I can go from computer to piano just by swinging 180degrees and relive working with artists, some of whom are no longer with us.
 
Good luck.

Matt

Thank you for the invite its most appreciated, however as we live in Cheshire it's not possible to attend but we all wish you much success and prosperity in your new premises.

Ps Melissa adores her piano.

Best wishes the Bowsers.

Graham. Thank you for your invite but it is too far to your part of London from where I live.

I wish you a successful day.  So far  I am very pleased with my piano and although I am struggling to learn jazz it keeps me off of the streets.

Hi Graham

Thank you for the invite, but I am in USA on business and will not be back into the UK until March 1.

We  love your piano, and I was hugely grateful for your help when I came to buy it.   But it took me nearly 2 hours to get to you, and that's a bit far to go for a party.  Good luck with it!

Hi Graham thanks for the offer but it's a bit too far to come from Aberdeen. I don't actually play the piano was a gift for my girlfriend and she's really pleased with it. Hopefully the next house will have room for a real one. She'd had her eye on a Classenti for years but we just don't have the space.

Regards
Steve

Hello Graham
 
Thanks for the invite but a 250 mile round trip is a bit far for us these days.best of luck with the new store
By the way we bought a CLP 525 piano from you and have been very satisfied with it. Thanks for all the advise.

Keith

Dear Graham,

Thanks for your invitation. We are sorry that we could not join the opening, as it is Friday.

Our new piano has been delivered to our home from you company. Thanks for your help, as it is a perfect purchase experience.

Congratulations to your new shop.

Hi Graham,

Thank you for the invitation to attend the opening of your new Piano Shop.  I am afraid I will be unable to attend but hope to visit your shop in the not too distant future.

Kind regards,

Linda

Hello Graham,

Many Congratulations on the opening of you new Finchley store, and thank you for the open-day invitation.
Regretfully, as I reside many hundreds of miles away I do not have the resources or time to attend or surely I would have, and would have enjoyed the engaging spectacle of live jazz and piano demos.
Although not directly a UK Pianos customer I am happy to admit that your site, and the direction and advice enclosed by you was most helpful in my choosing an instrument locally which met my needs and budget. The wealth of data and assessment carried out and published by you impressed me to the extent that I searched far longer that my original timeline to source a suitable piano based on my recalculated requirements, with much more hands-on appraisal than I would have previously thought of as being necessary.
Please be assured that when I am in a position to purchase a new piano I will come to your site in the first instance as I have come to trust your judgement and expertise.
I wish you and your business ventures all success: without the enthusiasm for music shown by retailers such as yourself, the pianistic world would be a duller place, and perhaps have less outlet for spreading such clear enthusism and passion in the field of live musicality.

Best Regards,

Malcolm
