We are here to sell and hire out fine, modern upright and grand pianos, and to provide a unique working environment in central London for the music profession. Peregrine epitomizes the musician seeking to facilitate good music-making. For him friendly staff, integrity and an aspiration for quality are all important; we work to standards and not to price.
Peregrine's Pianos is the exclusive dealer in London for Schimmel pianos and Britain’s only August Förster dealer, and we supply new instruments by Feurich, Seiler and Samick. In addition, we offer a range of preowned modern pianos by such manufacturers as Yamaha, Bluthner, Ibach, Kawai, Knight, Sauter, Steinway, Bohemia and Fazioli. Our hire service includes both long-term domestic hire, and concert and event hire.
The team responsible for the Peregrine's Pianos music rooms have a strong legacy dating back to 1997 when they established Belsize Music Rooms. We have vast experience in the smooth running of comfortable rehearsal facilities for the music profession. Our premiere music rooms, which can accommodate up to fifty people, are the first choice for orchestras, opera and media companies, teachers and large numbers of independent professionals.
