Dean’s Books

Dean is writing a series of books. The first is available on line now; the second is still being written. More are coming.

“How To Move a Piano by Yourself with the Wrong Equipment”

Until this book was written, the only ways you would have gotten your piano moved were either with a bunch of friends, brute force and a “figure-it-out-as-we-go” attitude, or to give in and hire piano movers. Now you can learn how to move a piano by yourself even if you don’t have the right equipment. Learn the right and wrong way to move a piano, what equipment works and what available items could work, and how to maneuver a piano through nearly any challenge.

“How to Tear Apart a Piano and Still Use It”

This book describes in detail how to dismantle every part of a piano. It goes on to list ideas of what can be done with each piece. Follow all the suggestions and every single part of a piano can be re-used: the ultimate form of recycling. While the piano may no longer be the insturment it was originally designed to be, it can become many things that can be shared and appreciated by countless people, embellishing lives and bringing surprises and smiles to everyone who comes in contact with it.
