Restoring, repairing, and tuning pianos in the Champaign-Urbana area for over 40 years.

The Piano Shop was founded by John Minor and Al Friederich in the fall of 2018 after the
passing of Steve Schmidt, founder of the Piano People in Champaign, Illinois. Both John and Al
shared a long friendship with Steve and greatly admired his commitment to excellence, exacting
standards, intelligence, and integrity.
