Since moving to Salida, Colorado in late 1988, my life has changed dramatically. Although I am still employed full-time by the US Postal Service and work all night there, I have been tuning and repairing pianos and reed organs here since 1994. I do not advertise except for signs on my vehicles, and I have more business than I can handle. I charge much less for tunings than anyone who comes to the area. I also discount fees for churches and schools and other non-profit organizations. Although sometime in the future I may buy and sell keyboard instruments, I limit myself to helping people find pianos or to find homes for their unused pianos. This is a labor of love for me and has enriched my life with customers who have become friends and friends who have become customers.
