Piano pro named grand piano master

Piano professional Peter Stevenson has attained a rare distinction in the music industry. The local entrepreneur is a musician, but he is best known as an instrument technician and that reputation just grew a few octaves.

Stevenson was bestowed with a certificate for completion of the Grand Piano Action Master course conducted by the international piano assembly specialist Renner Academy.

The course was a week-long intensive held in Scottsdale, Arizona. It centred on the repair and maintenance of grand pianos.

The instructors included some of the top names in the world of piano building and repair: Rick Baldassin, Nicholas Gravagne, Michael Spreeman, and Carl Teel.

"Only 15 piano technicians from around the world are accepted for each spring and fall session, which provides greater opportunities for student-instructor interaction as well as peer-to-peer learning," said Lloyd Meyer, president of Renner USA.

Stevenson operates P.S. Pianos, headquartered in Prince George and servicing a number of surrounding communities for the full spectrum of piano services.
