Meet Peter Stevenson
Peter’s love for pianos started early on in life. He took his first piano lesson at three years old and has continued to play ever since. In 2008, he began studying piano technology and enrolled in the Randy Potter School of Piano Technology, which is a comprehensive correspondence course in piano tuning, regulating, repair, and voicing.
He continued on to complete the Randy Potter Advanced Training Seminar at the Montana State University School of Music and he is also a Dampp-Chaser Humidity Control System-Certified Installer.
Peter explains that his intention on starting his business in Prince George was simple. He saw a need in town in an area where he was able to help out.“We have a supportive arts community here in Prince George,” says Peter. “The whole town is great and tight knit. By opening up P.S. Pianos, I had an opportunity to directly serve the community I call home.”
According to Peter, the best part of the job is knowing each and every one of his clients on a personal level. The ability to remember the name of each customer is something that he is proud of. He’s also humbled by the fact that children are learning to love music on pianos that he has serviced or sold.
Peters favourite part of Prince George, downtown in particular, is how walkable it is. He’s thankful that his young family does not need a car. Despite this, he admits that making service calls by bicycle is a little unconventional! He also adores the amazing music education community and vibrant musical culture in Prince George that has produced several world-class artists!
The piano expert confesses that he is particularly optimistic for the future of downtown Prince George making note that the atmosphere is finally becoming younger. He is confident in the direction of new small business. For Peter, small shops have the extra something special to offer their clientele. “We have the opportunity to create a kind of atmosphere, culture, and vibrancy that cannot be matched by big box stores.”
Family-oriented. Supportive. Classy.
