About Us

Ashfield Pianos is fully owned and run by Gavin Crooks BMUS


Gavin studied to Hull University where he gained a bachelor in music (B.M.U.S.) degree. But it was his love for the piano that sent him to Newark College for a further 3 years, to learn about tuning and repairs. He has now teamed up with well-known piano restorer Phil Taylor of Phil Taylor Pianos and now shares Phil's extensive workshop facility.

How it all began.

Gavin's love of music, in-particular the piano, started at a very early age. Both his love of Franz Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody, (which he is always striving to perfect), and his fascination with the inner workings of the piano came from the Tom and Jerry cartoon "The Cat Concerto".
