About FKCO


We are a Certified Public Accounting firm, and have created a successful environment where accounting, tax and consulting services can be provided to our music industry clientele by creative, people-oriented professionals, free from the bureaucratic constraints inherent in large firms.


Our firm was established in 1985, in the prestigious business center of West Hartford, CT and relocated to Farmington, CT in 2008. We currently employ approximately twelve professionals, including our founding partners, Alan M. Friedman and Donald A. Kannenberg, Jr.


Over the past 30+ years, we have developed a strong expertise in various segments of the music industry. We are now nationally recognized as a leader in providing accounting, tax, management consulting, business evaluation and accounting software training services to the music instrument and product retailing community, as well as renown bands and musicians.

Our firm plays an active role in the music retailing industry through our involvement in various Professional Development Programs sponsored by the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM), the National Association of School Music Dealers (NASMD), the Retail Print Music Dealers Association (RPMDA), Yamaha Music Corporation, our regular contribution of technical articles to Music, Inc. and through our membership in other prestigious music trade organizations.

Our firm also participates in educating young music career-minded professionals on the do’s and don’ts of establishing and operating their own music-based business by nationally lecturing at prestigious music colleges and universities, such as NYU, Hartt School of Music, UConn and The University of Indiana.
