Our senior high school has been aproached with an offer to "borrow" (indefinitely) a baby grand. It seems as though we could just say it's ours, but the reality could be that at some point it is taken back. Circumstances are that the owner lives several states away and would rather see the piano being used than in storage.
We are questioning A) would it fit in our space? B) will it be taken care of by student body C) Should it be used for rehearsal in the music room or kept on the stage for performances(less secure for our school)?
I hate to say "no" to a free piano, but I'm just not sure. Any thoughts?
