Alex Peppe learned the trade of piano tuning and repair from his father, Eric Peppe, and subsequently began tuning under his father’s supervision. He also worked as the exclusive in-house piano technician at Starbird Music for six years: He tuned, regulated, and repaired a wide variety of both consignment pianos and new floor models, and was able to begin exploring the tremendous variety of pianos here in Maine. He learned the value of listening and asking questions from Starbird’s legendary salesman, John Nickerson.
Alex is now an independent tuner/technician, operating throughout the Southern Maine region. He enjoys getting to meet a wide variety of incredible people, their pianos, and their pets. His main goals are to provide a customer service experience that is exceptional, and for his customers to always feel their piano got more care and attention than they paid for.
Alex lives with his wife Kati and his step-daughter Saoirse, on their farm sanctuary with their many animals. Farm animal rescue is his other passion, and you can read more at LuckyTalesSanctuary.com or at the Lucky Tales Sanctuary Facebook Page, or check out their recipe blog, Plant-Based and Practical.
