Will, Laura & Chris with Artur Pizarro (at piano) at our premium piano showrooms in March 2013

On Saturday 16th March, the state-of-the-art new Premium Grand Piano Showroom at Chris Venables Pianos in Ringwood was transformed into an intimate and exclusive concert venue where Artur Pizarro educated, performed and entertained a select audience, comprising pianists and those appreciative of classical piano. Artur Pizarro performed courtesy of Yamaha who chose Chris Venables Pianos to host the event, after they became the first piano dealer in the country to stock both of the company’s luxurious new CF4 and CF6 Premium Handcrafted Grand Pianos. Artur Pizarro performed using both of the new Premium Handcrafted Grand Pianos that take pride of place at Chris Venables Pianos for the evening concert.

Yamaha also offered the unique opportunity for pianists above Grade 5 standard to be chosen personally by Artur Pizarro to participate as one of four pianists in the master class.

Throughout Saturday 16th March experts from Yamaha were on hand to offer advice and those attending took advantage of some exclusive offers including special deals to upgrade their existing piano.

I didn’t buy a piano at the time because my plans have been uncertain for a while and it looks like I have to relocate soon but Chris was so attentive and accommodating that I plan to buy from him as soon as I am in a position to. Top notch service and expertise. Preparation is absolutely immaculate and to your taste if you choose to ask for it. Legendary attention to detail if you are buying - what else do you need to know?

I bought a Yamaha YUS5 upright in 2013, and ten years on it’s still going strong, and is playing better than ever, with the tone developing nicely. The service I received at the time was fantastic, including having the showroom to myself to evaluate the pianos. The piano was set up perfectly, which probably helps to explain why I’ve had ten years of trouble-free enjoyment of an excellent instrument. Highly recommended.
I've a piano finish speaker sent to Venables Pianos seeking for their help to repair it. They finished in two weeks and the damaged corners are like new now. Really professional and responsible.

I purchased a Yamaha B3 silent from here 6 years ago and it is still a fantastic instrument. The customer service, help and advice given by Will and the team was exceptional.
