before practice starts next August. You do not need to wait until

PIANO FOR SALE
We have an old piano, built in 1904, that needs a new home. It is
playable, but needs quite a bit of regulation and work to be at its
best (estimated by our piano tuner, John Dorr, to be around $800). Pin
block is still in good shape, and holds tuning fairly well. Beautiful
old wood and very heavy! I picked it up as a free piano about 8 years
ago when I was taking a course on
piano tuning and restoration. I replaced the key tops and cleaned it
and tuned it, but not much beyond that. Its been played a lot by us and
our kids, but it really needs to be fixed up by a
professional. Call Peter or Molly Wilson, 733-6815
