Large room with two grand pianos in Arlington, VA

placeWashington D.C.

Description

From June 1, 2021: THE STUDIO IS OPEN FOR FULLY VACCINATED INDIVIDUALS.

The pianos: We bought the Bösendorfer 225 (7' 4") new in 2001, and the Mason & Hamlin BB (7') new in 2018. Both are meticulously tuned and regulated.

The studio: Family room with natural light in a stand-alone house, three windows, about 431 square feet. The studio is in the southern half of the house, which has been sound isolated from the northern half, so we will not disturb you, nor you us. The studio is good for individual practice, for teaching, for studio recitals, for chamber music ensembles, for vocal rehearsals or for small concerts. The room has a music stand. Can seat 10 chamber musicians or an audience of 20, for whom chairs can be brought from upstairs. Audio playback facilities; Wi-Fi available (code on the computer desk).

There are two bookcases with much of the standard piano, chamber, song and choral literature. Please feel free to use these, taking care to return the scores to their alphabetical place.

A pitcher of iced water and glasses are provided in the studio. An adjoining restroom is available.

The location: In a suburb, five miles from the White House in Washington DC; thence it takes about twelve minutes by Uber/Lyft. Wide streets so that there is always plenty of untimed free parking. Two miles from the Courthouse Metro; 700 yards (ten minutes' walk) to the nearest bus stop.

“Great Pianos!”

Great Pianos. Gracious Host who makes us feel at home. Mr.Moll patiently answered my 12 year old son's inquisitive piano questions.

“one more great visit as I leave D.C.!”

I am leaving DC but am happy to have had a 4th (!) visit to this excellent venue. Am also happy to recommend it after repeated visits and will plan to be back when I have occasion to be in DC. Obviously would not have come so many times if it had been anything but the best of music experiences. My thanks to the host!

“A third visit!”

I keep coming back because the experience is so satisfying . Today I spent some time comparing two very fine but different pianos at my leisure. A delightful experience—for the third time. It would be great if there were more participants offering piano space in DC for pianos, but meanwhile if there is to be only one, it is terrific that at that one place, the pianos and space and hospitality are so outstanding.

“I came back immediately to this great space”

I am in Washington DC for several days, and fortunately there is this one opportunity to practice the piano on two fine instruments in a superb setting . I came back and am planning to return every day that other commitments do not interfere. Thanks to MT and a most generous host for expanding into DC!

“Could not have been better!”

Could not have been better! Two beautiful grand pianos, a gracious host, lovely room. I have been at a number of sites through Music Traveler, with excellent results, but even among other fine experiences, none as good as this. Highly recommended without hesitation!

“Generous man”

The host there only charges $1 for one-hour practicing on two grand pianos, which is a very generous and altruistic offer for all music lovers. Besides, this place is neat, well-organized and has a lot of music literatures along with sheet musics.

“Great place to practice”

Really enjoyed practicing in this clean, quiet, and well-maintained room. The studio is conveniently located in a quiet residential area with ample street parking. The host was very friendly and accommodating. The two grand pianos are well-tuned and I liked practicing on both. Mason & Hamlin has mellow, intimate tone while Bosendorfer concert grand has bright tone color. Would love to book again and practice more in the near future.

This Arlington in-home studio is the perfect practice getaway: two quality pianos, a spacious quiet room with natural light, and a knowledgeable engaging host.

“Review of Practice Space”

I was in Washing D.C. for a piano competition and was in need of a practice space. I was delighted to discover that Peter's space was available and was thrilled to have such a beautiful space to practice in. He has two gorgeous grand pianos which are kept up immaculately (thank you!) and the space is big and full of light and is a fantastic practice space. Peter was also an incredible host. I will definitely book again next time I am in D.C. Vivienne

“Wonderful Private Studio Space”

A private, quiet and clean studio space to rehearse chamber music or piano repertoire, including two-piano works. The grand pianos are both excellent instruments in fine playing condition. The room is sound-isolated from the rest of the house, and the host is charming and respectful. This studio is worth a short taxi or Uber ride from downtown.
