George Klassen, Piano Tuner and Technician

I am a prairie boy from southern Manitoba. I picked up the guitar in my teens as an alternative to taking piano lessons from my sisters! (I did however, learn to play piano by ear).

I attended college 1974-1978 and travelled with a working band for several months.

In 1981 we moved to B.C. where I completed a two-year program at Douglas College in piano technology.

The Banff School of Fine Arts provided me with my one-year apprenticeship under the mentorship of Hans Krebs.

Crescendo Piano Service was established in the Vancouver area in 1984 and has operated in this area since.
