UPDATED FEB.19, 2021: The stay at home order has once again been extended for Toronto and Peel regions until at least March 8th. Until then, I will not be providing any piano service. Thank you for your cooperation, and I look forward to continuing piano service for my customers as soon as I am permitted to do so. Please stay home, stay healthy, play some piano, go for a walk, and take care of yourselves.

UPDATE NOV. 23, 2020: I fall under the category of Household Services, and so I am able to continue providing piano service at this time, but I am taking the measures to try to limit the spread of coronavirus.  Because I am trying to limit my time in people's homes, some services may not be available.  While I, of course, have the health and safety of my customers and their families in mind, I am greatly concerned with my own family’s health and safety, as my wife and I have a newborn at home.


Upon visiting my customers' homes for piano service, I will require the following: 

  1. Access to a sink to wash my hands (I will provide my own soap and paper towels)

  2. The recommended physical distancing of no less than 2 metres, at all times, with anyone present in the household during my visit. 

  3. Please clear off all items from the top of the piano prior to my arrival.

  4. If possible, open windows to allow for air circulation.

  5. At this time, I prefer all payments to be made using e-transfer.


I will have a mask on, and I would greatly appreciate it if anyone who needs to be in close proximity to me (less than 2 metres) is wearing one as well.


If in the last 14 days, anyone in your home has travelled from outside of Canada, experienced any COVID-19 symptoms, or come into contact with anyone infected with the virus, please postpone booking your piano service.


Thank you for reading and I look forward to seeing you!

How to Clean Your Piano

Now that you are staying home you're probably playing more!  Here are some steps to keep your piano keys clean: 

  • Wash your hands before and after playing

  • Clean your piano keys!  Here is a great resource for cleaning your piano keys safely. 

    • Note that disinfecting sprays and wipes can damage your keys.

    • It can be tricky to know if you have ivory or plastic keys.  Contact me if you are unsure. 

    • Be very careful to not get any drips down the side of the keys - that can damage the wood under the key tops

Please don't hesitate to get in touch with any other questions or concerns. Wishing good health to my family, friends, and customers!
