Hall Piano Company

Steven Kinchen dreamed of playing music ever since he was a small child.  When he had a chance to work in the music industry following his music degree in college, Steven jumped at the chance. Thanks to a professor’s recommendation, Steven visited with Dan Hall, the founder of Hall Piano Company in Metairie, Louisiana.  Mr. Hall offered him a job and the rest is history!  Among his first duties with the store when he arrived in early 1990 was to develop the synthesizer department.  From that experience, the store began a long and successful relationship with the Kurzweil Company.  When it was time for Mr. Hall to retire, Steven and Mr. Hall’s nephew bought the store as partners.  They continue to serve the Matairie and New Orleans area.  Stop by and say hello.
