Welcome to Anderson Piano Service
For most people, a piano is a mystery. Most of its moving parts are well-hidden; the sounds it makes vary tremendously; weather affects it, far more than the sturdy case would lead us to expect. Most of the time our piano sits quietly waiting for use. It doesn't bark to be tuned, it doesn't "make a funny noise" when it needs adjustment (at least, not usually!). So it's easy to assume it never needs maintenance.
However, pianos do go out of tune even when not being played, and they can be just fine on an outside wall. I hope this web site will not only let you see how to contact me, but also learn about pianos and know how to better care for your own piano. Since the piano is arguably the most basic instrument in Western society, it makes sense to have a basic understanding of its care. That's where I come in. I'm Kris, and I'm "At Your Service".
Whether you need a piano tuned or repaired, I'm here to help.
I'm a piano tuner. It's what I've done all my working life and I can't imagine doing anything else.
I've always loved seeing how things work -- taking them apart, putting them back together again and I love old things -- I imagine the stories they could tell. I love music and of my top 5 favorite sounds, one is the sound of an orchestra "tuning up". I love making someone else look good and yes, a well-tuned and well-maintained piano can make a difference in how a person plays and expresses themselves. I even love wood! When I play Scrabble, I'll often pick my next few pieces based on their wood grain. And I love helping people -- for me, the best part of my job is the customers. I enjoy their company; I learn from them, I applaud their achievements.
I look forward to meeting you!
