You could own a Billy Joel piano

A baby grand autographed by the Piano Man is being sold to raise money for music students in New York City.

The $60,000 Steinway is being auctioned for a program at Mount Carmel-Holy Rosary School in East Harlem. Singer-songwriter Billy Joel will autograph it above the keyboard for the winning bidder.

The Mount Carmel program is run by Ten O'Clock Classics. Joel is a board member of the nonprofit group. It serves as a feeder program for the Music Advancement Program at the Juilliard School at Lincoln Center.

Auction proceeds will provide music theory classes, ear training and possibly individual lessons. .
