I am a piano technician who specializes in home piano tuning and repair as well as concert level work in Willmar, Minnesota and surrounding area.



Coronavirus News

I am doing residential tunings again now. If anyone in your home is sick please let me know.

I've been in the piano service business since 1966 when I finished technical and tuning training under instructor Cliff Johnson at the McPhail School of Music in Minneapolis.  My current responsibilities include maintenance of many pianos in schools, churches and concert halls in the Willmar area.  Willmar is located in south central Minnesota about 100 miles west of Minneapolis on highway 12.

I also offer keytop replacement, Piano Lifesaver (Dampp Chaser) installation, and most rebuilding projects.
If I can answer any of your piano-related questions or help make your piano play and sound better please contact me at: Dennis@DennisBenson.com

I've been involved in photography since high school. Back then, I was shooting with film and developing my photographs in my own dark room. I switched to digital several years ago and have not looked back.Northern Lights

I love to capture those magic moments whether it involves weddings, senior portraits, photo journalism, family portraits, or sports. For me it's the fun of the hunt for that perfect picture. Sharing the captured photos with people is a joy.

I own a Nikon D500 Digital DSLR and a Nikon Z50 mirrorless camera and have taken photos of weddings, seniors, families, sporting events, theatre production shots, product photos, web site photos, and many events.

My grand daughter Madeline is doing very well on her cello. Here are three videos of her playing her cello.

Popper - Requiem, Op. 66. Madeline (15) played with this trio of cellos at the St Olaf Cello Camp.

Hungarian Rhapsody, Op. 68 by David Popper (Madeline age 12 on cello)

After winning the Schubert Club Competition this summer Madeline was able to play a portion of her solo on the stage of the new Ordway Concert Hall. TPT Television recorded it. Here is a YouTube video from their site.
