I thought Norbert's offer was quite kind, actually. I even tried to PM him, but his inbox was full smile. And I'm 99% sure he would recommend the tech I have in mind for the job anyway.

So enough of the quibbling -- you're stealing my thunder. I bought a freakin' grand piano! yay!

I only described pertinent question regarding potential conflicts of interest regarding you giving technical advice to a pianist.


This is as ridiculous as it gets.

I have been playing piano for 60 years and have a VERY good technical understanding of things. I am very glad to share that experience with others. When with other pianists or musicians, "touch" and "tome" is what it's all about.

That falls within my purview as a professional Piano technician giving advice.


What does fall within your purview is "how" you as a tech can help a pianist to accomplish his goal or dream. "What" and "how" are 2 very different things. As a tech you're not *above* the musician - but there to serve him and his needs.

For which are getting paid.

You are very welcome. Depending on needs and preferences, I usually recommend several.

I would even recommed our friend Ed.

Except I don't know the man, don't know his work and and don't know if he has a work permit for Canada.
