I am an associate member of the Piano Technicians Guild and apprenticed with Ken Dalgleish, who has serviced pianos on the Sunshine Coast for the past forty years.
Like many of us, I began music lessons when I was growing up, studying both classical piano and voice. I went on to study musical theatre at the Canadian College of Performing Arts and jazz singing at the Victoria Conservatory of Music, while also composing songs. I released two albums, and in 2012 was nominated for a Vancouver Island Music Award.
Sometimes I think about that little piano I had as a kid, how it was hard to play and sounded strange, unlike my teacher’s cheery upright. I realize now that it was simply in desperate need of tuning and regulation.
I offer services in piano tuning, regulating and repair. Whether you’re reviving a neglected piano or maintaining your most cherished possession, let’s make your piano sing. Andrea Routley
