See what some of our artists friends and clients say about us …..


“I love the friendly staff at Theme & Variations! They provide me with the best possible instrument in Australia and their technicians will go out of their way to make sure the instrument is in tip top shape for each performance. I know I am in good hands when I am playing on one of Theme and Variation pianos!”

Joyce YangSteinway Artist

“Theme & Variations is one of my favourite piano stores. They have a great selection of pianos and I love to rehearse at their showroom as well as to perform on their concert grands when I’m in Australia”.

Elio Villafranca Steinway Artist

I am eternally grateful to Ara and Nyree Vartoukian and the team at Theme and Variations for their ferocious and heart-warming support of my career over the past decade. They have played an important part of my trajectory from ambitious competitive young player to where I exist today in the professional sphere. My recently purchased Steinway B (affectionately named Theo) has been a spectacular partner-in-crime. Imbued with all of the characteristics famously attributed to the Steinway brand, it allows my music to speak and sing in ways that are wonderfully heightened.

I have now worked closely with Theme and Variations Piano Services for over 18 years, firstly in my position as Head of Piano at Cranbrook School, and for the last 10 years in my position as Co-ordinator of Performance Studies at Kambala.  At both schools, Nyree and Ara supported the complete ethos of spreading the joy of music and making this possible through patience, confidence in their product and the integrity of their business.

I can honestly say, that without Nyree and Ara, Kambala would not have a Steinway D concert grand and Cranbrook would not be an All-Steinway School. It has always been a joy working with such wonderful people and I envisage this partnership with our school continuing for a long time to come.  Thank you Theme and Variations!

Peter SagarCo-ordinator of Performance Studies, Kambala Girls School

Theme and Variations has provided pre-performance tuning of the concert grand pianos used for the concerts of the Sydney Mozart Society for more than two decades.  This service has always been to the highest standard demanded by our professional pianists and performed with unfailing reliability. Their passionate support for music and musicians makes it a real pleasure in dealing with Theme and Variations.
