General Service Policies
- Andante Piano Works is not a retailer and does not sell piano parts or tools.
- APW does not offer pianos for sale. See the links and resources section of this website for recommended local vendors.
- APW does not teach piano lessons. You may contact me for referrals to qualified piano teachers in the Portland region.
- APW does not accept solicitations from tools and parts manufacturers. Solicitations will be deleted without opening and email addresses will be flagged as spam.
- Rates vary depending on the project. Please contact me for rates on basic services (tuning, evaluation, repair); large projects such as regulation/reconditioning/rebuilding are on a case-by-case basis depending on an evaluation that determines what the individual piano needs & desired service level.
- Links and resources are provided on this website as a courtesy. It is not an endorsement of any vendors; please do your own due diligence with regard to researching any vendor or service provider.
Blog Comments Policy
Andante Piano Works encourages respectful discussion in the blog comments section. However, please keep the following guidelines in mind.
- Commenting is a privilege, not a right.
- While I encourage discussion and so appreciate your thoughts, I reserve the right to remove comments of people who abuse this privilege.
- Be polite, even and especially if you disagree—APW strives to maintain a respectful, non-threatening atmosphere on this site where all people of a variety of ages feel comfortable sharing their thoughts.
- Relevant links in the comments leading to additional discussion are encouraged.
- APW requires a valid email address (“valid” includes not one using an anonymizer) for all comments.
- While I will not publish or share your email address, I may contact you via email if a response to your comment is better addressed privately.
- If you leave your comment using a fake email address, your comment will be removed.
Language, Behavior & Respectfulness
- Name calling, bigotry and personal attacks are not allowed. Commenters who engage in this behavior will have their comments removed and their IP address banned without warning.
