Our piano tech series continues with Harry Doss, piano technician at Virginia Tech, and also the guy who also makes the 2 hour trek to Garth Newel Music Center before every concert weekend to make our pianos sound concert worthy. Our conversation contains such tidbits as “how to talk to your piano technician” and “how to avoid destroying your piano”.
It was great to get the chance to talk with Harry, whom I usually only have brief business chats with when he comes. Through doing this, I’ve realized that we pianists could all benefit from talking more to our piano technicians. They have a lot to say that could be quite useful!
