On Being a Pianist in Kenya - Against All Odds
It is hard enough to train as a classical pianist, even in a Western country with good access to instruments, sheet music and advanced tuition. If you happen to live in Kenya, where nothing of the above is easily available, the many obstacles make it almost impossible. Yet, there are people with an absolute determination to learn. Piano Street has talked to pianist Cordelia Williams, whose new documentary film depicts a new generation on track to break the "glass ceiling" of classical music in Kenya. Read more >>

Ghosted by two piano tuners
on: July 29, 2022, 06:28:09 PM
Since I purchased a grand piano in 2019, Iíve been ghosted by two piano tuners in the SF Bay Area.  They simply stopped answering my emails/texts/phone calls whenever I asked them to return for another tuning.
They are both certified piano tuners.

 I wonder if this has happened to someone else.

Did they go out of business during the pandemic? Before the pandemic, there were at least 4 tuners within a 40 minute drive of my location. Now there are none, and the nearest is almost 2 hours away, so I have to wait for him to accumulate a bunch of jobs in my area to make it worth his while. But I  live in a very rural out of the way place; surely there must be piano tuners to be found in San Francisco, no?

No, they are very much in business and seeing other pianists based on Yelp reviews.
One of them lives 15min away
