Recently, I have had a few clients come into my shop to view pianos that they want to buy for their businesses. One of them had inherited a restaurant and was refurbishing the entire place to open for business soon. He asked if it would be a great idea to purchase a piano, so that a pianist can entertain his patrons. I told him that it was a brilliant idea, as there are many benefits of instrumental music, even in a business-setting.
Another client was a doctor who had plans to open his own nursing home. I told both of them that for businesses such as day care centers, cafés, hospitals, old folks home, and many others, the presence of a piano can assist patients and patrons tremendously. Then, one of my clients expressed his concern in finding a pianist, and wanted to know if it would cost him a lot of money to hire one.
