Renee & Len Trinca – Co-owners: The Trincas’ introduction to Schoenhut® Piano Company was a case of “love at first sight.” The story begins in 1996 when they purchased the company, expanded the product line, and established contacts in the world of music. Both Renee and Len are actively involved in day-to-day business operations.
Renee’s multi-faceted role includes (but is not limited to): marketing, attending trade shows, customer service, product details and photography of musical instruments, and overseeing the very popular Gallery of Stars and Artist Roster featured on the website. She also handles public relations with media, editors of trade journals, professional musicians, and charity organizations to whom generous contributions are donated.
Len is extremely gifted in the area of design and invention. The majority of new models began as prototypes that were hand-built and created by him. An example of Len’s engineering expertise is Schoenhut’s popular Piano Pals™, an innovative line of toy pianos designed to grow with a child. His improvements to product durability and enhanced aesthetics are widely recognized. He also oversees production and quality control ensuring that Schoenhut’s high standards for safety are strictly enforced.
As a result of hard work, dedication, enthusiasm, a friendly and knowledgeable office staff, and excellent customer service, Schoenhut remains in the limelight as the most prestigious (and oldest!) manufacturer of toy instruments.
