He opened his own boutique piano sales showroom, the Atelier, in late 2005. He sells quality instruments at all price ranges, rents pianos for performances and recording, and presents intimate concerts and salons with some of the world’s finest pianists.
David continues to teach various aspects of his craft at Piano Technician’s Guild conferences on the local, regional, national and international level. He has held one-day seminars in New York City, Boston, Phoenix, Chicago, Calgary, Baltimore, and Albuquerque, teaching the finer, more subtle aspects of tuning, voicing, regulation, artisanal rebuilding, and diagnostics. His classes always examine how a technician is being as well as what he/she is doing. He taught eight full class periods at the 2012 national PTG convention.
Some of the classes David Andersen has taught in the last four years:
“The Ultimate Tool: using the brilliance of your body in high-end piano work”
“Follow the Fourths, Luke: a radically simple approach to Aural Tuning”
“The Art & Esthetics of Voicing”
“ Whole-Tone, Open-String Tuning: Advanced Listening Skills”
“Custom, Artist-centered Restoration: the Real Story”
David has six grown children and is now a grandfather; he lives in Los Angeles, California, with his wife and partner, the sculptor Tanya Ragir.
