About Us

It’s Been Keyboard Concepts Since 1983.

Dennis Hagerty and Jeff Falgien opened their first piano store more than 30 years ago. Today the franchise has grown to four Southern California locations and in a recent poll Keyboard Concepts was recognized as “The Most Recommended Piano Stores in California.” It’s been an exciting journey and both Dennis and Jeff recognize that hard work, business savvy, great products, good locations, luck and some help along the way have brought them to the very top of their industry.

Among many giants in the piano retailing trade, Dennis especially acknowledges the late David Abell as a mentor and inspiration. “David Abell knew how to take care of his customers and developed a very loyal following. As Keyboard Concepts, we will continue David’s dedication to quality and fine service. He was a great piano retailer and we are proud to follow in his footsteps.” Keyboard Concepts acquired the Abell store in 1999 and retained the Abell name in honor of their friend.

Loyal customers appreciate the courteous, professional service, the outstanding selection and the fair, very competitive pricing Keyboard Concepts is famous for. Located in the heart of Southern California’s entertainment community, our roster of celebrity clients includes the who’s who of the movie, television and music industries. The majority of Keyboard Concepts’ business comes from referrals by satisfied customers, teachers, tuners and all the music professionals who have depended on us over the years.

We’ve earned an enviable reputation by having the largest selection of the finest new and used pianos available in all price ranges. We’re now in five convenient locations: San Fernando Valley/Sherman Oaks, San Gabriel Valley/Pasadena, West Los Angeles/Santa Monica, and Orange County/Fountain Valley.

The Keyboard Concepts Sheet Music, Software and Accessory Department has been presented the “Outstanding Performance” Award as the top dealer in the US representing Yamaha MusicSoft Software for the Disklavier and Clavinova.
