Do you want fries with that? https://www.brianwilsonpianocare.com.au/do-you-want-fries-with-that/ Sat, 07 Mar 2015 03:45:40 +0000 http://www.brisbanepianotuners.com.au/?p=299 One of the things that ticks me off is upselling purely as a money making strategy.

Pianos – Do Rei Mi https://www.brianwilsonpianocare.com.au/pianos-rei-mi/ Wed, 30 Jul 2014 03:20:19 +0000 http://www.brisbanepianotuners.com.au/?p=250 Let’s start at the very beginning….

Reflections https://www.brianwilsonpianocare.com.au/reflections/ https://www.brianwilsonpianocare.com.au/reflections/#comments Sat, 17 May 2014 00:13:20 +0000 http://www.brisbanepianotuners.com.au/?p=235 The days they pass so quickly now. That reminds me of words from a John Denver song. Exactly twelve months ago I was boarding a Qantas jet to commence my Churchill Fellowship and I used the words from the song “Today” in my travel blog and now I am thinking of the words from “Poems, […]

Treble too dull? https://www.brianwilsonpianocare.com.au/treble-dull/ Mon, 28 Apr 2014 02:13:20 +0000 http://www.brisbanepianotuners.com.au/?p=215 I have seen this situation a couple of times with the same small grand. The piano is an entry level 150cm grand made by a respected manufacturer, that’s five feet long in the old language, and the owners say to me that the treble and high treble is weak in sound. The quality of this […]

If only pianos could talk https://www.brianwilsonpianocare.com.au/pianos-talk/ Sun, 09 Mar 2014 21:40:54 +0000 http://www.brisbanepianotuners.com.au/wp/?p=75 “ You want to do what”? asked my Manager. “Leave a career in banking to tune pianos?” He wasn’t the only one to ask this question. Why would I want to leave a stable and respected career and go and work on pianos? “Electronic organs are the popular instrument. Pianos are on the way out!” […]
