I started Stan’s Piano Service in 2002. I am happy to be celebrating my 16th anniversary providing professional tuning and repair services to the Twin Cities area. The growth of my company has primarily come from my client referrals. I have tuned literally thousands of pianos in the Twin Cities metropolitan area.
My business focuses on
- Tuning and repairing the neighborhood piano
- Keytop replacement done in my home shop – see video
- Grand piano action regulation, rebuilding, damper underlever replacement and grand piano voicing
- Grand piano rebuilding – currently in my shop is a 1915 Connover Cable grand and a 1915 Chickering grand piano that are being restored and refinished.
In May (2018) I completed the Renner Academy full week “Immersion Course” with the Industry’s top instructors who provide hands-on training in the art of replacing and regulating the grand piano action and damper/underlever system.
Below is a listing of some of the churches and schools where I provide tuning and repair services:
St. Philip the Deacon Lutheran Church
Wayzata Community Church
St. Barthelomew Catholic Church
Blake Highcroft Elementary School
Plymouth Middle School
Robbinsdale Middle School
I currently am serving on the Program and Education committee of the Twin Cities chapter of the Piano Technicians Guild. I have also continued my technical and tuning skills through attending local and national PTG technical classes.
