New Grand and Upright Pianos
Kawai... winner of over 48 major international awards for excellence.
Koichi Kawai, the company founder, was born in Hamamatsu, Japan in 1886. As the son of a wagon maker, Kawai developed an ability to create mechanical devices and inventions when young. He began working in the piano industry in his early teens, and, while still a young man, became key member of the YAMAHA research and development team that first introduced pianos to his country. He proved to be a gifted inventor who became the first to design and build a complete piano action in Japan. In 1927, Koichi Kawai founded the Kawai Musical Instrument Research Laboratory and has earned a reputation for outstanding quality and workmanship in the crafting of world-class musical instruments. Today, Kawai acoustic and digital pianos are a top choice of pianists, teachers, churches, students and piano enthusiasts around the globe. We invite you to explore our collection of world-renowned instruments. The perfect piano awaits you.
SHIGERU KAWAI ~ THE PREMIER PIANO OF JAPAN
A Shigeru piano is much more than the intelligent application of material, labor and design. It is an art form born not from the head, but from the heart. Thus, the craftsman does far more than simply “build” it—he brings it to life.
The sensitive nurturing of every part, every joint, every subtle nuance vests each piano with an intangible quality—a soul—that lives on from generation to generation. And those who own a Shigeru piano know that they possess not merely an instrument, but a partner in the musical pursuit of dreams.
