Steinway Nashville located off Sidco Drive is not new to the Nashville area, but in honor of being in business 88 years, they celebrated the special milestone with a ribbon-cutting ceremony with Williamson Inc. staff and chamber ambassadors Tuesday.
“We have made a point to have the very best pianos available at every price range,” said Brandon Herrenbruck, owner.
After teaching high school and middle school for a number of years, Herrenbruck decided it was time for a career change. He did not have to look very far, since he married into the piano business almost 20 years ago.
“I asked to join the business and became the 4th generation in our family’s business,” Herrenbruck said.
His wife’s family, the Metcalfe’s, have been in the piano business since 1929. Established in Evansville, Ind., the operation eventually expanded to Nashville in 1989.
The Steinway-brand pianos they sell have a long legacy in America. The brand is celebrating 165 years in the business.
Herrenbruck shared some facts about the Steinway brand.
- Manufactured in Queens, New York
- Manufactured in the same factory since 1871
- 300 craftsman hand-build the pianos
- It takes one year to build one piano
Sales Specialist Chris Clasgens has been at Nashville Steinway for 20 years. After studying music in college, he found a new interest in sales.
“I really became enamored with the job,” Clasgens said. “I really enjoy sales, and I like working with people in helping them understand the world of pianos.”
Clasgens also explained that in addition to Nashville musicians serving as patrons, another big portion of their business is families relocating or creating a music room in their homes.
“We see a lot of people moving into a new home, and they have thought about having a music room,” Clasgens said. “Music is very important to a lot of people who live in this area.”
From grand to digital pianos, Steinway Nashville has just about any size one might be looking for.
“We can accommodate the most basic players, maybe just students, and we can accommodate the most discriminating artist who wants the very best piano to play,” Clasgens said.
