We give free pianos to local students in need. We receive free pianos, we give free pianos! Each piano is inspected to ensure dependability, tuned and cleaned, and given to people who are not able to afford buying a piano.


 The Kenya Piano Project is a joint venture created by Kenn Wildes of Seattle, Washington, and Patrick Muraya of Nairobi, Kenya. In 1991 Kenn traveled to Africa to pursue a long distance running career. While living there, he utilized his experience as a piano tuner and restoration technician and started a piano business. He met Patrick Muraya showed a keen interest in apprenticing. Under Kenn’s guidance, Patrick honed his skills and became a talented piano technician. Over the years, the piano business thrived.

      After five years of living in Africa, Kenn returned to the United States and Patrick became the new owner. Pianos that are generously donated to the Kenya Piano Project are shipped to Nairobi, where they provide a livelihood for those who are learning the skills to restore and repair pianos. Once restored in Kenya, these pianos are then made available for purchase in the community. Because of these donations, many of these pianos will find a new and cherished home of musicians, students and music lovers alike who will continue to enjoy the gift of music for years to come.


is an effort to help people upgrade their instrument, whether it be from a keyboard, or looking for a better piano. Due to the confusing plethora of inexpensive pianos available privately, these pianos are brought into the repair shop, inspected, serviced, guaranteed, and made available for $100-$900 to the local community.

  • As a music teacher, I've really loved working with the Stage 7 staff as they've been very helpful with hosting recital space for our group. Parents and students have loved the selection of pianos and also their beautiful space!
    – Jonathan and Christine M.
  • Kenn, Thank you very much. I appreciate your help and time and cooperation. Stage 7 came highly recommended to us and I am thankful for your help. Getting all of this insurance mess wrapped up has been a challenge.
    – Douglas
  • My name is Kim B and I'm a piano teacher in the Kirkland area. I've used Stage 7 Pianos numerous times for my piano recitals. The staff is always so helpful and flexible to work with. The acoustics sound fantastic for performances and my students have an extra bonus by being able to play on world class concert grand pianos! Looking forward to using this special venue for many years to come.
    – Kim B.
  • I feel as if a new friend has just entered my life....a beautiful Young Chang piano from Stage 7. After 50 years without a piano, I immediately fell in love with the sound and beauty of the piano and the expertise of the staff at Stage 7 helped me cement my decision. They refinished the bench, tuned the piano and made sure that I was connected with an outstanding piano mover who carefully negotiated a few tight left turns to get my piano into its new home.
    Starting piano lessons again after so many years is a joy....and sitting down to "practice" fills a place that was missing in my soul. And my family has adopted Young Chang and my son and granddaughter sit down to play each time they visit....bringing extra smiles and warmth to my home.
    Thank you, Kenn and staff, for answering all my questions and for helping me choose a new best friend.

  • I have used Kenn’s piano tuning services since 2001. ... I found his knowledge of pianos extensive and have continued to call on him over the years. ... Kenn is always prompt, courteous and very kind to my old and temperamental piano. I recommend him to anyone who is looking for a tuner.
    – Kerry D.
  • Just as buying our piano was a big decision, so was selling it. I had no idea where to start, but decided to send Stage 7 an email. I received a prompt, honest, and very helpful response from Kenn Wildes. He gave me current market information that proved to be 100% accurate regarding selling the piano on my own. As a result, I later consigned my piano to Stage 7 and it sold very quickly. Couldn’t have asked for a better consignment experience!

  • Testimonial from tuning Bosendorfer grand for concert pianist in Seattle:
    It was a great pleasure for me when I played my piano extensively yesterday later in the day after the piano was tuned. I felt great benefit from the clarity of the sound and liked and enjoyed it very much. So did my wife too when she played - and she has excellent hearing. Thank you dearly!
    – Hartwig E.
  • Kenn helped me look at and assess a used Steinway B piano that I purchased for a venue in Seattle, The Royal Room. Kenn was honest, helpful, and very easy to work with. The piano has worked out great, the performers love it, and we have been very happy.
    – Wayne H.
  • We were extremely pleased with the piano tuning and repairs that Kenn provided. He is very professional, skilled, and personable. His prices were very reasonable for the amount of time and effort he provided (which was a lot). We highly recommend Kenn!
    – The Knickrehm Rich Family
  • Thank you all again. Truly this is a dream come true. I can assure you the piano will be a cherished instrument. Thanks for the care you clearly give all the pianos!
    I think I played the piano for about six hours on Saturday! My husband is totally enjoying listening to me play again (even with all the wrong notes and crazy tempos) and my daughter is interested in learning. Believe me, this piano could not have a more adoring family! And my granddaughters just cannot wait to play it! I just referred someone to Stage 7!
    Thanks again!!!
    – Deb J.
  • Kenn, you are running a great business and I am proud to be a part of it. I love that you care for the family and the piano after the sale. I feel cared for and valued as a customer.
    You have made this a pressure free experience for us. Payment, loaning the moving equipment and following up about everything going well.
    Thank you!!
    – Mike T.
  • Stage 7 provides the finest concert grand in the area for our studio recitals. Kenn and his staff are most professional. At every recital, they give us the warm reception, wonderful service and make us all feel like home.
