Gary Galanti comes from a well-known and well-respected music products family. His great grandfather began building accordions in Italy in 1890 and later his uncle and father sold them in America. Gary began in the family business by helping with the wholesale division while also expanding their product line to include organs and pianos. In 1984, Gary had the idea to create a Hyundai branded piano and thought the name recognition would increase sales - he was right.
