I hold “workshops” on pianos and piano tuning wherever asked to do so, but also each of my owner service calls also includes an owner workshop about tuning and maintenance of their piano — information and instructions given to whatever length and extent they wish, lasting from a few minutes to an hour.
I provide these workshops because the more an owner knows about their piano, the better care they will take of it, and the more they will enjoy using it, and — very important — the more likely they will be to read my book [this website] “Piano Tuning Phoenix” and to tell other people about this book. It’s the only book available anywhere written in owner language, not technical language, that covers all aspects of acquiring and owning and maintaining a traditional physical acoustic piano. And, it’s FREE! Right here on the internet!
Laveen AZ is at the center of my Piano Tuning Workshop area that covers the southern part of the Phoenix cities complex — and this geography is complex, politically! There are areas and cities that are combinations of municipalities, as well as non-incorporated areas. It was decided long ago that these locales would be called “urban villages”. The locals call the central southern areas of Phoenix today the “Baseline Corridor”, and this sort of covers Laveen, Estrella, South Mountain, and Ahwatukee AZ.
With the building of the 19th century railroads from the East, and the lust for gold, fame, and fortune that followed the United States Civil War, people went West in large and on-going numbers. The Laveen area was setttled in by about 1880, and became primarily an agricultural region, due to the fact that it was isolated from the northern Phoenix area in those times by the Salt River flowing east to west, with few bridges and easy crossings. Laveen owes its name to Walter Laveen, who homesteaded a large farm area in the early 1900’s, built the first store, and was Laveen’s first Postmaster.
Of course, progress took over soon, bridges were built, commerce increased, the area became an important resource for agricultural commodities of all kinds. By 2000 large home builders moved and in made Laveen into a major “bedroom city” for the entire Phoenix Valley.
What this means for me is that Laveen represents all of my central and south Phoenix Piano Tuning Workshop area. From Laveen you can look East and see the areas of Ahwatukee around South Mountain, or West and see the Estrella Mountain range that borders Goodyear.
