Jonathan Laubscher began his apprenticeship in Cape Town in 1984 and started his own business in 1990. Jonathan was an agent for Kawai pianos in the Cape Province.

His clients included well known pianists, universities, music schools and concert venues in South Africa. He sold his successful business and immigrated to New Zealand in 2009 where he has since been working in the piano trade.

Being owner operated we are interested in maintaining a satisfied client base and thus far much of our business has been by referral or repeat.

"Simply amazing! Johnathan and Simone were incredible. They got my new piano up into my wee cottage from Lower Hutt to Mt Cook no worries!

Highly recommended!"

Tony Allardyce

★★★★★ "Got them to look at my piano which I bought new about 10 years ago in Hamilton. It didn't have a good tone at all and needed a proper tune. Incredibly, for not much spent I, effectively, have a new piano. The sharpness has gone and it feels so much better to play. They've basically turned it into a much better instrument than it is (it's a cheaper brand). All in all, very professional, easy to deal with and extremely fair. Most importantly, they know what they're doing. Highly recommend."

Alison Shaw

★★★★★ "I am from Taupo and bought my YU3 off Jonathan a year ago and I am absolutely thrilled with it. It is every bit as good as I had hoped and a whole lot more. I have my ATCL in piano and I recommend buying from Jonathan if you want to feel secure in your purchasing decision and want a piano that will get you where you need to go in terms of your musical goals!"

Heide Robson

★★★★★ "Jonathan is incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to pianos. Highly recommend giving him a call if you are thinking of buying a piano. Honest and very helpful."

Marion Titmuss

★★★★★ "Jonathan was professional and kind extending a huge amount of time and care in helping me choose a beautiful sounding Kawai Grand Piano, his thorough service included careful delivery and he offers a peace of mind guarantee. I highly recommend Piano Company NZ for their wide range of pianos to choose from plus expertise and I am loving my new piano!."
