About Ye Olde Piano Shop

Hi. I'm Keith Bible, the owner of Ye Olde Piano Shop in Cedarburg WI. My shop is a small one man business entity. I build my business on old fashioned honesty and integrity. I believe in offering superior piano services at a fair and competitive price. My low overhead makes it possible for me to give you the best price.

My Background

I am a certified piano technician. I have over twenty years experience tuning, repairing, refurbishing, and restoring pianos of nearly every brand.

I studied piano technology (new window) at the North Bennet Street School in Boston Massachusetts. It is the school for craftsmen. It was here that I learned:

  • Musical acoustics
  • Piano maintenance
  • Temperaments
  • Tuning procedures and practice
  • Upright and grand regulation
  • Appraisals and estimates
  • Action renovation, retrofitting, and replacement
  • Bridge capping
  • Pin block replacement
  • Refinishing
  • Rescaling
  • Soundboard repairs/replacement
  • Use of hand tools and woodworking machinery
  • Veneer repairs

In a nutshell, I learned how to take apart an old piano, repair it, and restore it to like new condition. Then I tune the piano to bring out it's rich tone. I just enjoy the smiles of my customers when they see their old piano restored and tuned again.

Recently I became an authorized dealer for Pramberger and Sohmer pianos. Now I can offer my customers a high quality, yet reasonably priced, piano for their home, church, or school. I picked these old name brands because they offered the best value for your money.

Piano music lessons are offered here at my store and shop. I have partnered with a skilled piano teacher. She will teach all levels of piano lessons from beginner to expert.
