At Artisan Piano Services we truly believe in creating and cultivating a team atmosphere.  We seek out artisans who share our company’s vision and have the skills and ability to make that vision come to life.  Being a team in every sense of the word means that we rely on each other for help and encouragement; this unites us and enables us to better serve each other as well as our customers.  Our technicians are constantly honing their skills and teaching each other new techniques and practices. Our staff continually discusses and implements new ideas about how to better serve you, our valued customer.  We are here to serve you not as individuals, but as a team of people who work together to give you the very best piano servicing experience possible.
