I will try to regularly update this website so come back often to see what new links or
information has been added.  In the near future I hope to have links to other sites with more
information about pianos and their workings.
Summer is has been pretty nice now that it has finally come--warm days and cool nights. How is your garden coming along? We have eaten peas,
strawberries, green beans and potatoes from ours.

We carry a variety of used band instruments  as well as instruction books. Musical instruments and accessories make wonderful  gifts for any
occasion and there is always the option of a gift certificate. Come take a look.

We are still giving lessons so give us a call.

We have helped several people with instrument needs for school, but also for a few to revive skills and join the community band. It's never too late to take it
up again, but the older you get it does get harder to do. Maybe a few lessons would help get you back at it. Or at least a few pointers. Schedule your lessons
now for
guitar, piano, voice, cello, mandolin, 5-string banjo, flute, trombone, trumpet and more.

Consignment sales: see the fees page for more info.

We all know that Minnesota has a climate that changes constantly. As you well know we are in one of the colder and snowier winters in recent memory. This
means our furnaces are nearly constantly running pouring out hot air. This process not only dries the air in your home it also, gradually removes much of the
moisture from the wood in your piano. This can cause wood to crack and glue joints to dry out and loosen. This drying process is very hard on your piano.

This humidity problem can be controlled two ways. First is a complete climate control system in your home such as a whole house air conditioning or
humidifying system. The other is much less expensive and much more specific to the needs of your piano. This is a Piano Life Saver System which is
installed inside your piano and is designed to work year round to maintain the proper humidity levels in your piano. Piano Life Saver Systems from
Dampp-Chaser have been producing a solution for humidity problems since 1947. Go to the information page for more about how humidity affects your
piano and a link to The Piano Life Saver Systems home page.
Notes that may be of Interest:
  • I have been in the piano service business for over 28 years
  • From my perspective there is no piano too far away, however this may not be your perspective as I may have
    to charge for mileage.
  • I have recently moved pianos to Iowa, Arizona and Moorhead, MN.
  • You are only too old to learn to play an instrument when you are in the mortuary
  • Call 218.831.0707

We welcome you to our web site.  Our hope is that the contents will be helpful for your musical and
piano situation or if you are just seeking information.

There is information here about our services, prices and experience. There is also information about
our retail store in Aitkin.

There is also information that may be helpful if you are looking for a piano, keyboard or organ.

If you have any questions or you wish to make an appointment please do not hesitate to give us a call.
