I realized recently that it has been almost six years since I founded Andante Piano Works.
While six years isn't generally considered a milestone anniversary, it's significant to me because it means that I've successfully been running my own business for as long as I was employed at my previous job as a service department supervisor/technician at a local piano store.
Running my own business was always my long-term goal from the start of my career as a piano technician, but it was definitely hard to consider leaving my colleagues and the familiarity and stability of a full-time position that included really good health insurance without a guarantee of success. But I was at a point where I needed to re-prioritize doing what I really love, which is working on pianos.
We are thrilled to announce that Andante Piano Works now serves Cowlitz and Columbia counties as part of our standard service range.
We have noticed an increasing demand for tuners and technicians in the beautiful Lewis River and upper Columbia River regions, including the cities of St. Helens, Rainier, Longview, Woodland, and their surrounding communities.
Andante Piano Works is now on Instagram! Check us out and follow @andantepianoworks to stay up to date on my never boring, sometimes downright zany adventures as a piano technician throughout the Portland, OR area.
