Hi, I'm Paul Spooner. If you don't know me, perhaps you're just looking for a generic handyman in Post Falls?

No? You're specifically interested in me coming over and fixing your piano?

It's going to cost you $100/hr including travel (I'm located in Post Falls, ID). Small bits of wood and wire are included, along with adhesives (super glue!). I don't stock larger parts (new strings and replacement components) so all of that is at cost.

I'm an accomplished pianist, so I know what it sounds and feels like when everything is working properly. I'm also an accomplished mechanical engineer, so I can take your piano apart, clean it, adjust it, tune it, and put it all back together again. I'm also an accomplished wood-worker, so if the body of the piano needs repair, I can handle that as well.

You can e-mail me at info@tryop.com or call or text to:


Here are some pictures of pianos I have worked on.

There are lots of parts inside.

Along with a bunch of strings. This is called the "soundboard" or the "harp".

But this is the part most people think of.


I can also just come over and play the piano. I am comfortable playing by ear, and can improvise for hours in a variety of styles. I also sing, though I don't know any popular songs. My sight-reading is accurate but slow. I can play from the hymnal! I also know the Maple Leaf Rag by Scott Joplin:


I'm happy to give lessons on how to play the piano. I've been playing since I was 5 years old.
