One Piano at a Time, One Client at a Time
When people speak of piano restoration, it can mean so many different things from one person to the next. I’ve heard the phrase piano “restoration” used to refer to anything from a few minor repairs, to a basic regulation, to a complete remanufacture. When I speak of piano restorations as a piano technician, I classify the restoration based upon the level of restorative work undertaken. There are four general categories of restoration that I’ve come to use: Repair, Reconditioning, Rebuilding, and Remanufacturing. Please see the sidebar for definitions of these terms.
In my piano rebuilding work, I have dedicated myself to providing one of a kind piano restorations, suited specifically to the taste and needs of each client, individually. In my work I believe the piano restoration process is an opportunity to create an instrument that is a perfect match for it’s owner. It is the time for me to use all my skills, all my craftsmanship and caring, to create an instrument that is musically and aesthetically exquisite. This “one piano at a time, one client at a time” approach allows me to focus all my efforts on exactly what each individual piano requires. No two pianos are exactly the same, and no two pianos need exactly the same treatment. I am dedicated to finding exactly what you and your piano need, and allowing your piano to achieve it’s fullest potential.
