95 Yr Old Piano Store Closing

Claude P. Street Piano Company Closing

Nashville’s ninety five year old Claude P. Street Piano Company, located in on Mallory Lane in Cool Springs, will be closing soon.  They recently lost their lease and have begun a liquidation sale of all piano inventory.

We spoke with Ted Stalets of the Claude P. Street Piano company, located in Franklin TN.  The Cool Springs retail store will be closing soon and discounts up to 70% are available.

The Claude P. Street Piano Company is Nashville’s only authorized Yamaha piano dealer. Artists who exclusively use Yamaha pianos include Elton John, Alicia Keys, Sarah McLachlan, Barry Manilow, John Legend, Paul McCartney, Jason Mraw and James Blunt.

The Claude P. Street Piano Company started back in 1914, right here in Nashville Tennessee.  The Cool Springs Franklin retail store is an authorized piano dealer for Yamaha, Schimmel, and Seiler.

Still being offered is six months interest free financing on select models.  Other financing is available with approved credit.  Local service and warranty coverage are available.  All sales are final and when the inventory is gone, it’s gone forever, so don’t delay.

The last day of business has not been announced, although the employees we spoke with said it could be any day.

Claude P. Street in 1900 as Jesse French Piano & Organ


History of the Claude P. Street Piano Company

In 1914, Claude P. Street after managing the Jesse French Piano Company for 14 years, opened his own piano showroom in downtown Nashville. He was certain that a successful business could be built by offering the finest keyboard instruments and professional service. One hundred and ten years later, we are a living testimony to that dream – being the oldest piano store in middle Tennessee.

Today we continue the tradition by offering grand, upright, digital, and player pianos from the world’s largest, and many say – best musical manufacturer – Yamaha. Claude P. Street Piano also offers a complete range of piano services (tuning, repair, and restoration services) through some of Music City’s most gifted piano technicians.

For the economy minded – we offer superb pianos from China – both the German-inspired Hallet Davis as well as pianos from American Sejung.

We are also the authorized Allen Organ dealer. Allen Organs are the finest organs available and continue to fill worship sanctuaries with the most inspiring organ sound heard anywhere.

Claude P. Street Piano Company has been serving the Mid-South’s keyboard instrument needs for over 95 years, and we’ve been rewarded with lasting friendships spanning three generations.


$174,900 Yamaha 9' Polished Ebony Grand Piano

Shown on the left is a Yamaha CFIIIS PE 9′ Polished Ebony Grand Piano which retails for $174,900.

If for nothing else, you need to stop in to see and touch a Yamaha piano that costs $174,900.

It is the exact piano that most of the Yamaha’s well know musicians and celebrity artists play on.  Yamaha has a “Concert & Artists Division”, also located in Franklin, TN.  When a Yamaha signed artist comes to town to play at Schermerhorn Symphony Center, the piano is transported to the venue as needed.

Occasionally when an artist comes to Nashville a few days early, they’ll stop in to play and practice at the Claude P. Street Piano Company store.
