Kawai America Corporation and Kawai Canada Music

Kawai was founded in 1927 by Koichi Kawai, a gifted piano craftsman, in Hamamatsu, Japan. From its humble beginnings, the company has grown to become one the largest and best known musical instrument companies in the world.

Kawai America Corporation (established in 1963) and Kawai Canada Music offer a complete line of pianos, digital pianos and professional keyboards to musicians across the United States and Canada through a network of authorized dealers. From our North American headquarters in southern California, Kawai America and Kawai Canada manage instrument sales, advertising, marketing, artist relations and technical services. Both companies also oversee independent sales and service representatives located throughout the United States and Canada.

Kawai's authorized independent retailers are carefully chosen based on their ability to provide expert sales and service of Kawai instruments to our valued customers in North America. Our online retailers are chosen with similar care. We hope they will provide you with a thorough and engaging introduction to Kawai quality.



A never ending quest for perfection sparked by the skills and dreams of one man, magnified by the vision and passion of his son, and advanced by the steadfast determination of his grandson.

It is an illustrious heritage that finds its greatest fulfillment not in size and scope, but in quality and heart.

This is Kawai... With a history shaped by generations of commitment, and a future dedicated to the pursuit of perfection for generations to come.
