Preparing the New Space

It has served us well, but it has become increasingly cramped for our needs. Over time it became clear that we needed more space for our technicians to spread out and make room for more repair work.

The New Doorway

The New Doorway

In October this year we were given the opportunity to enlarge our office and piano workshop area by almost 3 times its original size. Notice the sliding French doors made by David Hayes!

AFter Inside Office door 2We were able to knock out the wall to the office and open up the other space for our workshop.

After New Work Area

We now have four new work benches and a staging area for our customers to be able see their newly completed rebuilt and restored pianos.

From our remodeled office we are able to coordinate the activities of all of our piano technicians in both our Portland, Oregon and Bellevue, Washington locations, and better serve the needs of our customers with piano repair needs.

Artisan Piano Services In Bellevue, Washington

Bellevue-Skyline-low

In May this year, Artisan Piano Services opened its second location in Bellevue, Washington. Sometimes companies expand to new locations after long planning and preparation. Other times opportunities present themselves in unexpected ways. For us, that unanticipated blessing came to us in the person of Josh Mayfield.

Joshua-MayfieldJoshua Mayfield, a native of Bellevue, WA, comes to Artisan with a wide array of skills and technical abilities, having been trained by some of the Pacific Northwest’s industry leading technicians. Josh had his own piano servicing business, but was looking for an opportunity to serve more people throughout the Puget Sound region and to become part of and grow with a stable company in the industry.

Joshua has shown himself to be a true asset to our team with his love of pianos and working with people. He has always loved the piano because it blends music and mechanics in such a unique way. Joshua and his wife, Amanda, are true Pacific Northwest outdoor enthusiasts and enjoy a wide array of outdoor activities including hiking, fishing, and biking.

After six months now, our Bellevue locations is beginning to grow in significant ways, and provides Artisan Piano Services’ outstanding customer service to Seattle, Kirkland, and as far as Tacoma, Washington.

The New Artisan Piano Services Blog

With the unveiling of the new Artisan Piano Services Blog we want to celebrate over the next several weeks some of the new and exciting things that have happened in 2014.

At the beginning of 2014 we welcomed two exceptional piano technicians as new team members in our Portland, Oregon location: Michael Turano and Jonathan Valentine. Both of them are graduates of the North Bennet Street School of Piano Technology (NBSS) in Boston, MA. Both are Registered Piano Technicians (RPT) with the Piano Technicians Guild, and quickly became important to our success this year.

Micahel Turano comes to us from Windsor, CA, having been highly recommended by his professors at the North Bennet School, which he finished in 2013. Michael is a fantastic technician, who loves the complexity of the inner workings of pianos. Michael is always surprising us with his wide range of interest which includes everything from weaving and Scottish country dancing to volunteering at Guide Dogs for the Blind in his spare time.

Jonathan Valentine is an accomplished Classical Concert Pianist from Bayport, NY. He is a gifted technician who loves to bring pianos back to life, and enjoys seeing the passion people have for music.  His attention to detail and inherent understanding of the customers’ needs and wants have made him an incredibly valuable addition to our team.  Along with a love of playing the piano, Jonathan also appreciates the great outdoors and has recently taken up rock-climbing and bouldering.
