Rockley Music Center Ė A Colorado Piano Store Worth Visiting

In May, 2006, I had the pleasure of visiting Rockley Music Center, located at 8555 W Colfax Ave, Lakewood, Colorado. During that visit, I was pleased to discover and make my acquaintance to the staff, comprising a tremendously committed and talented group of individuals. Starting at the top, the owner and president of Rockley is Tobin Rockley. Tobin is the third generation successor to this 60 year old Colorado piano dealership.

Other members of the Rockley Piano staff are as follows. There is Andrew Ward, chief sales manager, Connie Koprowicz, the director and go to person, problem solver. Then there is Vic Richardson who is the technology support manager who. Vic specializes in user electronic and music technology support where he frequently provides technology seminars for piano teachers.

To take care of their piano customers, Rockley works with highly qualified independent technicians who follow-up routine and technical service issues. One of the things that impress me is that the entire Rockley staff including Tobin Rockley, are all active musicians. Rockley is a service oriented piano dealer dedicated to the support and creation of music, not just to a get rich, exclusive bottom-line self profit mentality. I will speak later in this review to what I believe is importance of music as the bedrock of any piano business.

Family, Community and Service Orientation

Rockley Music continues to thrive in a very competitive business environment by following a few golden rules and principles.

1. The management and staff are service oriented.
2. Any problems coming up are handled directly in the following ways.
3. The staff follows up on all their service calls by talking to and querying their customers on a regular basis, to make sure of their satisfaction. If there is a problem, they fix it and make it right.
4. Rockley does not farm out their problems to service people that they donít know or to unqualified individuals.

Rockley Music Center is The Colorado Piano Accessory Store to go to

Rockley has a extensive piano accessory facility in house side by side to their acoustic and electric piano store. In the very near term, Colorado will have a new in state and online piano store. This new web resource will enable the Colorado piano purchaser and consumer to buy a broad range of piano accessories from a respected and established Colorado business. Here is a brief summary of the kinds of piano, digital piano and keyboard accessories that will be available.

Polish and cleaning supplies, benches, bench covers, piano lamps, covers, dollies, tools and parts for piano technicians, keyboard bags, cases, stands, pedals and more. If there is an piano accessory you need, it can be found at Rockley Music Center.

Electric Pianos and Keyboards

Rockley exclusively carries Roland Digital Pianos and carries Roland, Kurzweil, Korg and Casio portable electric keyboards. In addition, Rockley carries portable keyboard amplification equipment and accessories.

Summary

I believe music serves as the bedrock principle of any piano business. After all, a piano is first a musical instrument and secondly, a piece of furniture. Now a days I think that the whole musical, piano and arts community has to work extra hard to establish and maintain the value and importance of music and the arts in our culture. That makes it even more imperative that a business such as Rockley or any piano dealer continually reaffirms and reestablishes that connection.

The Rockley staff are musicians and work with their customers as peers and friends, not just as sales people pushing product. Rockley also continues to promote and sponsor numerous community musical events such as the 3rd annual Pranberger adult piano festival and competition and the Belmar Whole Foods music artists program.

I vote a yes for Rockley Music Center, for their consistent and reliable approach to customer service, family and community. All these assets and more make Rockley the place to consider when purchasing your next piano and most certainly, the best place to purchase your piano accessories.
