Australian Chamber Orchestra


Theme and Variations tuners and technicians do a wonderful job for us in preparing and maintaining the ACO’s Steinway concert grand piano in our Sydney studio. They are also incredibly efficient and professional in looking after our piano hires and tunings for our City Recital annual subscription series in Sydney, our annual season in Wollongong and for all other piano hire needs.

City Recital Hall


'I would like to thank Ara and the team at Theme & Variations for advising and assisting us in the purchase of our new Model D Steinway. As a concert venue our instruments are of paramount importance and we appreciate the care lavished on them by Theme & Variations, and the excellent service levels you provide. Our tuning needs are often at inconvenient times and we appreciate the flexibility and patience the team displays in meeting those needs. We value and enjoy our long-standing relationship with you and your staff and I would have no hesitation recommending Theme & Variations for sales or service.'

Santa Sabina


'Santa Sabina College purchased a new Boston Grand Piano from Theme & Variations and I could not be happier with the service and support we received from the company in the process of selecting the most appropriate instrument for our needs and the delivery of the Grand Piano. We have used Theme & Variations as our preferred company for piano tuning for many years and their work has been efficient, courteous and prompt. I am particularly impressed by the way they are happy to fit in with the College’s busy schedule. The tuners are reliable and the tuning and repairs are of the highest quality.'

'Having reached the stage of replacing our old uprights, we spoke to Theme and Variations about the possibility of ordering six of their larger-sized Boston pianos. The financial benefits received in our ordering of these pianos were handsome indeed. Given the high level of playing from our piano students, there was no doubt that Kambala should aim to become an All-Steinway School and gain access to the benefits that come with that status.'

Cranbrook School


In 2000 the Cranbrook School Music Department decided to apply for funding to replace its ageing pianos in the teaching and practice studios. In looking at the possibilities, there was no doubt that the package proposed by Theme and Variations Piano Services / Steinway and Sons was an outstanding opportunity.

'I have been acquainted with Theme and Variations for the past twenty five years. Under the leadership of Ara Vartoukian, this business is much more than a retail piano business. In fact I consider Theme and Variations to be a cultural icon which underpins the music industry and in particular the piano industry in Australia.
