Kawai Story


In 1927, Koichi Kawai founded the Kawai Musical Instrument. Research Laboratory, employing seven other kindred individuals. As a fledgling company, the only thing that supported them was their passion for music and desire to produce superior pianos. Koichi’s fundamental principles were centered around quality, music appreciation and the quest for excellence.

These basic principles inspire and direct Kawai to this day.

There is no longer or more lustrous pedigree in the piano building world than Kawai. Today, 80 years after the founding of the company, Kawai is one of the largest piano manufacturers in the world. Despite this growth and success, the humble passion Koichi Kawai brought to piano-making as he struggled in his small shop has remained unchanged. It is not the size of the company that is a source of pride to all at Kawai, rather is it the musical instruments themselves.
