Professional Team of Piano Expert Technicians

Here's our team of piano technicians.

Aaron Firpo

Business Owner

I first entered the piano business the summer after my senior year of high school. I was given a job by Rick Vokt at Pianos New & Used in Colorado Springs, and really came to love the industry.
I worked with Rick for five years at his shop. He gave me the base of my knowledge in restoration, refurbishing, moving, and tuning.

I then traveled to San Diego to work with Paul Robinson at his shop The Acme Piano Company. This shop focused mainly on Steinway and Mason & Hamlin restorations. Working with Paul gave me the opportunity to really hone my skills in fine restoration and tuning. Working with these shops has given me a base of knowledge that I am eternally grateful for.

This shop means the world to me, and my goal is to strive to provide the best pianos and service possible to the most important part our business, our clients.
