May 2017 – Piano Forte Service in Yellowknife, NWT
Although my main area of piano servicing is Vancouver Island, I have had the great opportunity of also developing a piano tuning client base in Yellowknife, in Canada’s North West Territories. I regularly go there twice a year to tune and repair pianos. It’s always a bit of a shock to go up north in the spring. Throughout April I am happily enjoying the warm weather, flowers, and ocean vistas of my home base of Nanaimo, Ladysmith, Parksville, Qualicum Beach, Cowichan, and the Gulf Islands. This year my spring trip to Yellowknife was April 29th – May 8th, 2017. Suddenly I was thrown back into the end of winter…temperatures near freezing and slush on the ground. The extremes of weather and humidity certainly present a more difficult environment to keep pianos regulated, in tune, and in good repair. Hence the importance of tuning pianos more often for my serious clients in Yellowknife. I always enjoy the great connections I make in the north, and look forward to the next trip there.
