The Origins of Keyboards & More

Bob Kenney opened Kenney Music Centre in April 1978 as a piano and organ store focused on retirees. Sharie Schultz joined the store in September 1978. In 1982, Bob sold his shares of the store to Sharie and she expanded the inventory to include band and orchestra instruments, accessories and repairs. Kenney Music Centre then began doing business as Keyboards & More. She directed her attention to school band and orchestras and began working closely with the Middle and High School area directors. 

The business grew in inventory, customers, and employees by personal touch. It also grew into the world by an internet presence. It has become “a showcase store” for Conn-Selmer, Korg, Roland and Yamaha instruments. The potential continues to grow, but the foundation remains the same personal interaction with potential music enthusiasts. The business was founded on Godly principle and continues to operate on them today.
