Bill Boyce - Founder
William Clifton "Bill" Boyce, Jr.,
who distinguished himself as a highly successful piano retailer throughout his remarkable 60-year career in the music products industry, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Saturday, February 2 in Bradenton, Florida. He was 78. Bill was best defined as a tireless entrepreneur, savvy businessman, guiding mentor, devoted husband and wonderfully loving father. He, along with his wife, Sandy, was the owner of and guiding force behind Palmetto, Florida-based Piano Distributors, one of the most successful piano store chains in the nation, with thousands of satisfied customers largely in the Southeast.
Sandy Boyce - Owner
I started taking piano lessons at age 4 and was teaching young children to play by the time I was 16. I soon found my real passion was showing the parents how much fun they could have making music. I have worked in piano and organ stores all my life and even met my husband in his music store in North Carolina.
After we moved to Florida to slow down a little, I found I missed the interaction of the staff, customers and students so we opened a store in Sarasota and the rest is history!
Today, I enjoy working with Adults who attend beginner classes, concerts and workshops. I particularly like participating in the outside sales events showing new people how easy it is to play, making their dreams come true.
Frank Harvey - President
Frank Harvey was born in Ft Myers, Fl and began playing the piano at the age of 8. He and his wife Shelly have 2 children that were raised loving and making music.
Frank "grew up" around pianos and worked in a piano and organ store when he was still in high school. His love and excitement for pianos is obvious when he demonstrates pianos all across Florida. He spends much of his time meeting new customers and sharing his passion for making music both in and outside of Piano Distributors locations. You may see him soon in a city near you!

Tara Kenyon - Advertising Director
Like many at Piano Distributors, music is the inspiration for Advertising Director, Tara Kenyon. How does a piano song affect you? Do you prefer to listen to or play a masterpiece? Music leads to higher creativity which has been a benefit to Tara for around three decades. Piano Distributors has been the perfect fit since 2007.
