Hello Andrea, My name is Bert and I love in Kalamazoo MI. I am very close with an older sister from 1865 whom resides in my theatre/piano shop. I am also close w a couple upright cousins from 1892 and 1896, as well as a great grand-son from 1923. Caring for old pianos such as yourself is my passion

We're up at 4:30a.m. most days. We sleep in until 6:00a.m. on Sundays.
What is your least favorite beverage?
Any drink of any kind that gets put on this old piano.

Not if someone is playing Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata.
Do you believe that playing is more important than winning?
You mean, playing the piano?
What angers you the most?
When people say that children shouldn't waste their time with music study because they will never make a living doing that. They just don't get it.
What's one thing everyone should do in their lifetime?
Learn to play the piano.. . Did you really think I would answer this question with anything else? ;)
Do you think that money can buy love?
Perhaps not. But money can buy antique piano restoration. That's the same thing, right?

Those who leave pianos in abandoned buildings, of those who toss pianos to the curb, of those who have no idea of our value.
Which famous person from the past would you most like to meet?
Just one?? I'd really like to meet Maria Anna Mozart, Wolfgang's older sister. Did you even know he had a sister? Did you know Mozart wrote pieces especially for her to play? Yes, I'd like to meet her!. . . I'd also like to meet Mozart, Bach, Liberace, Joplin. I'd like to meet Moses and Jesus, too.. . .
What was the worst age you’ve had so far?
Hmmm. . . I've had a lot of years. .I'm going on 143 years of age. . . .Probably my gestational year, all that preparing and bending and forming of wood can really take a toll on one's psyche.
What's the most valuable thing you've held in your hands?
I don't have hands. But, I daresay, having the Steinway touch and all, well, I am the valuable thing that others have touched.
