The Schaeffer family began buying, selling, repairing, and restoring pianos in 1901. 

John Pierre Schaeffer, a German cabinet-maker, founded the company.  Now leading the third generation and training the fourth, Rick Schaeffer keeps the family tradition alive.

Schaeffer’s Piano Company is the established leader in piano repairs and piano restoration with 120+ years of  piano craftsmanship and repair expertise. We transform grand and upright pianos into beautiful, high quality instruments. Schaeffer's serves the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area.  Brands sold include (but are not limited to) Schaeffer, Steinway, Yamaha, Kawai, Baldwin, Hallet & Davis, Hardman, Schulze-Pollman and Kawai Digitals.

Be sure to say hello at our showroom and restoration facility at 105 North Stonestreet Avenue, Rockville, MD.

We just had our antique upright piano completely redone. It looks and sounds beautiful. The customer service and communication from Schaeffer's was unbelievable. Michael and Gabe, who took and delivered the piano were fantastic. You can tell this is a family company that has been in the business for a long time.
