Had been looking for some particular sheet music for quite a while and found just what I needed online at Family Piano Co. They worked with me personally to get me just what I needed at the best price. I highly recommend Family Piano Co - love when I can buy from small business rather than Amazon! More...

Truly great service in all ways concerning music either with pianos or any other instrument. Entertains the public too with phenomenal music performers, solo or groups. A true gift to the Arts in Waukegan. More...

Great piano teachers with new piano bought at Family Piano. Alice and Brandon are very nice and knowledgeable. I personally completed their piano classes, even though it was far to travel to and I’m “older”, their teaching style motivated me to come again and again. They taught me the basics and I’m able to apply now to new music. Enjoying very much! Thanks again!! More...

Very friendly and supportive atmosphere, great place for learning music! My daughter has blossomed at Family Piano as a musician. She has been taking lessons for 5 years before coming to Family Piano, but it is here that she discovered her strength and freedom of performance. More...

Family Piano is a very friendly, (like its name says) family focused piano store in Waukegan. They have a huge selection of pianos and a large room where the Waukegan Chamber Music Society presents concerts. Nice to have this resource for pianists and classical music lovers in this community. We all know piano lessons are the thing we regret not keeping up with! Give your children the gift of something they can enjoy their whole lives. More...

Family Piano is exactly what the title says. It is a great place and friendly, too, like home. They have a piano room and a cute coffee bar type place to have events or just go to hang out. I love looking out the window at the revine. It's really pretty. They are so good to the people that have events there, so helpful. Going soon to enjoy the atmosphere again. More...

Not just a store, Family Piano obviously understand their civic role in building a good community, offering lessons, supplies, sheet music, and performance space - - the kind of place that earns your support and loyalty. Oh, and they are very friendly and have a good-sized assortment of pianos of course. More...

I had been searching all over for a hinge pin for my Young Chang grand piano and couldn't find one - Young Chang didn't even have one. Alice found a pin for me and sent it. So grateful for her assistance. The piano looks great with the lid up! More...

Great family-owned business that provided exceptional service on 2 pianos at my church. I would highly recommend them if you need your piano serviced or tuned.

Family Piano, where they treat you like family! Sounds cliche, but it's true!!! An essential stop if and when you're in the neighorhood.

Thank you Brendan! Even though my request was a little out of the realm of normal. The cardboard from the Pianos will help us out a lot.

Great place! Great people! I have known Julie and the rest of the staff there for many years. They treat everyone like old friends and family. I have referred many satisfied friends and students who were very glad that I did. Family Piano Company really knows their stuff and love what they are doing, and they are passionate about sharing this with their customers. They are also very nice people and great to work with.

Family Piano is absolutely wonderful. They always have a good environment, quality instruments, and incredible staff.

I couldn't have asked for a better experience. They really helped me find the perfect piano for my price range with no pressure or haggling. Since then, they have been nothing but helpful and courteous whenever I've needed to call. Really great people who truly love what they do! More...

Six Stars! Martha and I joined the FBC crowd this evening to enjoy the performances of Erwin Helfer and John Brumbach (and a great suprise visit by Doc Dockery and Bill Wynn). Two hours of fabulous music for $15 and the best and biggest vanilla latte for four bucks (excellent job, Eric) and we got to take home Erwins newest CD, Erwin Helfer Way - listened to it all the way home). We can't wait for November 2 and the Jack Baron Trio. Thanks again Alice, Eric, Brandon, Erwin, John, Doc and Bill. More...

Beautiful showroom with extremely knowledgeable staff. Their instruments all get extra love and care until they find a forever home. We moved to Waukegan a few years ago and Family Piano has now become a destination for our families entertainment with some of the best concerts around. A beautiful gem located inside Waukegans Arts District! More...
