Keeping pianos in tune: George Stokes learned his craft at Kentucky School for the Blind

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Sunday, February 2, 2014 10:39 AM EST

With electric pianos becoming more and more common, piano tuning may seem like a thing of the past, but those acoustic pianos in use at churches and homes still need a good tuning every now and then.

Piano owners in Frankfort don't have to look too far to find an experienced tuner.

George Stokes has been tuning pianos since he was in high school and said he has tuned thousands over the years.

Stokes, who is completely blind, attended the Kentucky School for the Blind, where he learned the trade of tuning pianos. He graduated in 1964.

Though he doesn't tune quite as many as he used to, Stokes continues to work on pianos for people and businesses in and around Frankfort.
