SELECTING YOUR IDEAL PIANO
When it’s time to invite a top-tier piano into your life, you need to know you are getting the right piano. Not only are you making a sizable investment, you are also purchasing a piano poised to fulfill a vital role. This role is bringing the joy of music into your home for a long time to come.
The piano business is not a regulated business. With 30 years of experience, Erica knows the ins and outs of the piano business. And her impeccable standards do not allow for compromise of any sort during the piano-buying process.
When walking into a showroom filled with top-tier pianos, it seems easy to fall in love many times over. Yet it is easy to choose a piano that is not your match. Erica will assist you in assuring the piano you purchase will meet your needs on every level at that moment in time and, equally important, for decades to come.
Erica’s uncanny talent for “meeting” a piano and knowing “who it is” instantly, in tandem with her sixth sense when meeting people, pairs the piano and the client together and gives each of her clients the confidence they need.
Is Erica a Piano Savant? Some people say so. For Erica, her talent is second nature. Having grown up around 26 pianos and 400 piano aficionados each year most certainly had a positive effect on her extraordinary abilities.
Erica Feidner’s matchmaking talent pairs an individual with their perfect piano. This is Erica’s unique and extraordinary gift.
Pairing People to Pianos and Pianos to People
Each piano that Erica meets that measures up to her standards goes into her mental memory bank, ready to be matched with a client whose needs are perfectly matched to the traits of that piano.
Driven by uncompromising standards, it is not unusual for Erica to send a customer home without having purchased a piano because she knows that in some cases the piano that a client is meant to own has not yet been born.
Erica’s uncanny talent for “meeting” a piano and knowing “who it is” instantly, in tandem with her sixth sense when meeting people, pairs these two gifts together and gives each of her clients the confidence they need to make the final, perfect choice. Doesn’t this sound better than just “buying a piano”?
The powerful connection that Erica forges between a person and their piano has an element of genius. Having grown up in a home with 26 pianos, Erica always understood that every piano, like every person, possesses different traits. Trained as both a pianist and a teacher, Erica is able to speak the language of a master musician and also understand the needs of someone who wants to fulfill a desire to play. The key is for Erica to find the right match between the player and the piano.
For Erica, having the customer understand the new world of personality differences between pianos, a world that she can successfully describe and demonstrate to any client, is one of the most gratifying and fulfilling aspects of her life.
Every Piano is Unique
Every piano has a unique soul, just like the person who sits down to play it. While the mechanics and structure of a certain piano’s make, size, style, age, and price may be the same, there is an endless number of variables that account for how each piano will sound and feel. For that reason, this piano specialist never pre-judges a piano until she sits down and plays a specific piano. Until then, its personality remains unknown.
How Long Will the Process Take?
Sometimes, the Piano Matchmaker can find the piano you will want to buy on the first day out. As she travels and visits showrooms housing the finest pianos throughout the world, Erica gets to know the personality of literally hundreds of pianos of all top-tier makes, thereby building her mental inventory of superb pianos and their whereabouts.
It may also be possible that the piano you are meant to buy is not yet born. In this case, the search will continue as Erica meets new pianos just coming on the market.
Given the uncompromising philosophy that drives Erica, the process is about finding your match in whatever timeframe it may take.
ENGAGEMENT FEE or ENGAGEMENT FREE?
Thank you for considering the Piano Matchmaker in your quest to find the perfect piano that was born for you.
Erica promises it will be a fun and exciting journey and one which you will remember for a long time to come. She has an amazing ability to show anyone the differences between pianos, along with how and why that is.
A $2,000 initial payment and a signed retainer agreement mean the exhilarating journey of finding your perfect piano can commence.
Most often, piano dealers provide up to a 5% commission based on the price of the piano, in which case the $2,000 is returned by Erica to the client. From what she’s been told, a commission paid to Erica by a piano dealer does not increase the price to the client because the funds come out of the dealer’s advertising budget. In effect, Erica’s assistance to you can wind up to be entirely free.
If, however, a dealer does not provide a 5% commission to the Piano Matchmaker, the 5% fee or the balance thereof becomes the responsibility of the client.
The initial deposit payment of $2,000 is due upon agreement by both the client and Erica to engage the Piano Matchmaker’s services.
Any balance due is to be paid prior to the delivery of the piano.
Erica accepts payment in the form of a check, cash, Venmo, or Zelle.
