As music education pivots to online lessons, master classes, and performances, we have designed our Educational Series for both educators and students who need keyboard instruments that are reliable and deliver a professional sound for the home, studio, or classroom

The Educational Series keyboards are fully voiced by the same team of tuners who make and tune our entire line of concert and Wave instruments, guaranteeing the best in musicality. Every instrument is set up and tested prior to shipping, ensuring that it is ready to be played as soon as it is unboxed

Our instruments are 100% designed and hand built in Arcata, CA
