        Pianos are essentially the simplest of machines, yet the design and construction of these instruments, along with proper maintenance, is anything but simple.  Comprised of wood, steel, brass, felt, cloth, glues and cast iron, an acoustic piano is a largely organic instrument that shrinks and swells with even the slightest of temperature and humidity fluctuations. With factory specifications that can be limited to fractions of an inch, these slight changes can and will affect the tuning, timbre and performance of the piano. This is why frequent maintenance is vitally important to a pianos long-term health. Proper maintenance is the key to protecting your investment as well as getting the most out of your piano as a musical instrument.

I hope this and the information on the following pages will be helpful to you, your piano and to whatever internet quest brought you to this site!  Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
