Here are some facts you probably didn't know about our long history of selling pianos and musical instruments.

Our History

Jordan Kitt's Music was founded in 1912 and is celebrating over a century in continuous operation. The first store was located on 13th and G Streets NW, just down the street from the White House. Today, Jordan Kitt's operates stores in two of the country's most vibrant top-10 markets - DC Metro and Atlanta - and is one of the oldest, most reputable piano dealers in America. They represent only the finest brands of acoustic, digital, hybrid and player pianos.

A privately owned and operated family business, Jordan Kitt's Music has sold more than 250,000 pianos and teaches over 40,000 piano lessons annually. They have provided pianos, organs and technical services to numerous venues and institutions such as The White House, The Music Center at Strathmore, The Kennedy Center, Wolf Trap, The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Spivey Hall, just to name a few.

In addition to piano sales, a significant focus of Jordan Kitt's Music includes piano service, rentals and lessons. They also operate one of the largest concert and artist operations in the country, providing pianos for famous and up-and-coming artists performing at famous venues.

Most recently, Jordan Kitt's formed a partnership with the Washington Nationals Major League Baseball Team resulting in their acquisition of a brand new Viscount Theatre Organ for the stadium and numerous "Pianos in the Park" events through-out the season each year. They also support Strathmore's annual student concerts which provide over 20,000 Montgomery County School Children with an orchestral music experience in the Music Center concert hall.

Other partnerships and events Jordan Kitt's has been involved with include providing instruments and associated services for the Pope's historic visit to Washington DC. Every four years they provide pianos and services to all Inaugural Events, including the Presidential swearing-in ceremony.

Jordan Kitt's advocates for music education through the industry's annual "Music Education Advocacy DC Fly-in". The owner is a member of the Board of Directors of both the Strathmore Foundation and the National Association of Music Merchants.
