Kawai: Continuing to bring piano manufacturing beyond perfection

From their ‘Workshop in the Woods’, Kawai’s Master Piano Artisans combine new technologies and traditional craftsmanship so ensure flawless results.

Music, the highest of fine arts, is the sound of the soul. Music transcends the ages and communicates to the heart. With that philosophy firmly in mind, Koichi Kawai, the founder of Kawai Musical Instruments Manufacturing, dreamed of building the world's finest piano when he established the company in 1927. Today, after a long history of technical innovations and quality craftsmanship, his dream has come true, with the company bringing learners and accomplished pianists the world over the highest quality pianos.

“What we try to do at Kawai is combine modern machinery with craftsmanship,” says Hirotaka Kawai, Chairman, President and CEO. “We have retained the traditional way of making pianos. Still, with the flow of time, machinery has been introduced and those things have been combined with the handcrafted aspect of our manufacturing. This has become the precedent to make our Ryuyo Grand Piano Factory possible today. Our second president established this factory, nicknaming it ‘workshop in the woods’.”



Headquartered in Hamamatsu, Shizuoka, Japan, Kawai is best known for its grand pianos, electronic keyboards and electronic synthesizers. However, it is its Shigeru Kawai series of pianos, named after its former president, that has taken plaudits and won awards internationally, including the famous Chopin International Piano Competition.

“The process of making Shigeru Kawai separated from others. It has been made from the knowledge and techniques from master piano making experts. Moreover, we only allow our certified technicians called MPAs (Master Piano Artisans) to complete the final adjustments to this beautiful instrument.”
