About Jim Kinnear - The Piano Guy

"Jim Kinnear is one musician who knows his instrument inside out, literally."

Both a piano player and a piano technician, I grew up surrounded by music. Our family was given a player piano by my grandmother. It needed some repairs, and my father, who had a knack for a challenge, repaired it, and began collecting players, which were being discarded in favour of tv's. There were many around over the years, and the rolls that came with them inspired an interest in old forms of music, especially ragtime. Long before the movie 'The Sting' popularized ragtime, my father and a few friends were promoting ragtime, often through lots of in home sessions and recording.

My first venture in rebuilding pianos involved my brother, a painted 'beater', and a disastrous moving adventure, when the piano, in a fit of self-destruction, hurled its self out of the pick-up truck. Never dropped one since, though!!

I'm also a skilled musical artist who plays piano at private functions, parties and events. Having a party? Contact me.

After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
- Aldous Huxley from Music At Night, 1931

My own thing is in my head. I hear sounds and if I don't get them together, nobody else will.
- Jimi Hendrix
