(CBS) — For Jeffery Tasch, music is in his blood.
“Once you sit in front of a piano, everything else about your day, if you had a bad day or whatever, it goes away. Music is part of our family.”
So it only came natural he would own a piano store.
“My father studied violin building in Germany. In 1955, he graduated and started working in violin stores throughout Germany, Switzerland and Italy. In 1965, he emigrated to America.”
But Fritz Tasch had to give up the craft because he developed a reaction to wood dust so he opened up a guitar store called the Sound Post, a music specialty store in Evanston.
“I grew up in the music business. This is what I know,” said Jeffery Tasch. “At one time, my father had three music stores. One of which eventually turned into Grand Piano Haus in 2003.”
