Piano Matchmaker Application
Held by the OU School of Music Collegiate Chapter of Music Teachers National Association

The OU School of Music Collegiate Chapter will oversee both student applications and donor submissions. Pianos will be examined for suitability and, as they become available, will be matched with appropriate families. Guidelines for matching pianos will be based upon application materials, availability of pianos, logistics, and cost considerations. Once families have been matched with a piano, it will be the new owner’s responsibility to move the piano to its new location. If the piano is no longer needed by the family, it is the expectation of the program that the piano would be re-donated.
