Jones Piano House History Title

"Founding Father"

Jones Piano House was founded in 1964 by
Murl Jones. Its core activity was wholesale
piano rebuilding for:

The business expanded into a franchised dealership,
selling Aeolian pianos and Hammond organs.

"On the Job Training"

I started with the company in the spring of 1973.
My primary responsibility was designated driver for
a blind tuner, Kenneth Heim. Eventually, I was hired on
full time while attending classes at DeVry and UMKC.
I never imagined I was embarking on a life long career.

"Higher Education"

In 1977, I took on a position of Service Manager at
Hendricks Music. There I was afforded the opportunity
to receive specialized training at the Steinway factory
in New York.

"In for the Long Haul"

Deciding self-employment is the only way to go, I
incorporated in 1979. In 1985 Murl Jones retired.
I purchased the company, and remained loyal to the
service aspects of the business ever since.
