Ever thought about what you should do with your piano in the winter?!?

Well, you need to take care of it; it is make of wood and metal and lots of bad things can happen if you don’t give it enough TLC!  You should be monitoring humidity and temperature around your instrument.  Read some more here https://www.worldpianonews.com/general/winter-tips-for-your-piano/  or here http://www.ptg.org/document//35/ or here https://www.modernpiano.com/How-to-Make-Your-Piano-Winter-Ready-1-28.html.

Need a piano technician?  We know one from the Piano Technicians Guild: Conrad! (Choffsommer@hotmail.com, 563-382-8525)
