Our Approach

Our Philosophy

At Harlan Ross Pianos, choosing a piano in a knowledgeable, relaxed atmosphere makes it easy. Our clients range from beginning students and progress all the way to concert-level artists. We guide our clients to the piano that best suits their needs by listening to their musical goals and helping them match that with their budget. From our point of view, the more knowledge a client has about each piano of interest, the better it reflects on Harlan Ross Pianos.

Our Story


Along with serving strictly musical goals, we pay special attention to making our pianos beautiful objects to have in your homes. We have worked with interior decorators in New York City and in the Berkshires to find them specialized pianos with unique design features to complement interior design projects.
