Yamaha was initially established back in 1887 and incorporated in 1897. They initially started out as a reed organ and piano manufacturer out of Japan, and have since grown to the giants they are now. Recommended by most teachers, Yamaha is a great place to start your musical journey due to their quality products at a competitive price. Yamaha own and operate all of their factories, so every instrument (even their recorders!) goes through the same rigourous quality control. Experience the Yamaha difference today and check one out!
