Artisan Family

We have some exciting news to share! Artisan Piano Services now services Play It Forward (PIF) a non-profit organization dedicated to providing instruments, instruction and inspiration to deserving children.  Michael Allen Harrison started the Snowman Foundation and Play It Forward in 1999 to support music education in Portland, Oregon and fill the gap in music left by a lack of funds in schools. The foundation’s primary source of funding comes from their annual Ten Grands concert. 
We are so very proud to work with this amazing organization and are blessed to be given the opportunity to discount our services to them so that they can get pianos ready for delivery to deserving homes!  The folks over at The Snowman Foundation are very happy with the way our partnership is working, as they are now able to get pianos into young people’s homes quickly and with reliability! 
Music has the power to change the life of one child, that we all know. But the power to create goes far beyond the development of one individual student. It ripples out into the community spreading itself without limitation, for music is a respecter of no person. And that may be its greatest power, that its boundaries are indeed limitless.

Back in 2005, David and Kathy Hayes founded Hayes Piano Restoration. Their beginnings were humble, yet exciting. Together, as a newly married couple, David and Kathy wanted to start a piano servicing business that was dedicated to quality customer service and excellence. Kathy scheduled appointments and ran the office from their dining room table while David performed service calls and piano restoration work.

Right from the beginning, customers recognized that something was unique and special about the way they conducted themselves in the treatment of not only their pianos but of the customers as well. After being blessed with significant growth, it became necessary to build a team of talented artisans who shared their vision for piano servicing and outstanding customer service; thus, Artisan Piano Services was born.  As Doug Hayes, father to founder David and Artisan Piano Services’ Manager said it best, “Artisan’s philosophy is really the golden rule: Do unto others just as you’d have them do unto you.”  The team at Artisan are one big happy family both figuratively and literally.  In addition to David and Doug, other Hayes family members include Adam, Ben and Jon who are all involved in the business in different capacities.   Adam is a Supervising Technician, Ben is a Restoration Technician and Jon is a field technician in Portland.  As well as being family, they are a team in every sense of the word. They rely on each other for help and encouragement; this unites them and enables them to better serve each other as well as their customers.

With our whole twelve member team, Artisan Piano Services has become one of the top piano servicing companies in the Pacific Northwest, with multiple locations and a strong desire to bring quality and craftsmanship to the piano industry.

“Time remembers those master artisans whose commitment to tradition and quality gave us a legacy of beauty, art and music. Like piano builders of old, we take great pride in continuing this time-honored tradition of simplicity, elegance and integrity. Our technicians are not only skilled piano tuners but are also full-service rebuilders and consultants, doing whatever it takes to bring your piano back to its fullest life and potential.” David Hayes, Founder.
