after the Civil War he mustered out of the Union Army and was awarded a homestead in
Longmont, Colorado. He sent for his father and they opened a father and son piano tuning and
In 1895, Joseph and his son Leo opened the Woods & Son piano store in Ft. Collins. Around
this time, another son, Carlton, moved to Denver and went to work for the Knight Campbell
Music Co. He was invited to the Steinway factory in New York for a two-year training program.
He then returned to the Denver area as a factory trained Steinway technician.
Five years later, he opened his own piano tuning and rebuilding business. Carlton ran the
business until 1945, handing it over to his son Charles II. While Charles is still active in the
business, he passed leadership of the company to his son Joseph II in 1980.
Joseph continues rebuilding, buying and selling Steinway and other fine grand pianos. The
company has since expanded to new piano sales including the renowned Bluthner, Mason-
Hamlin, Haessler, Charles Walter, and August Förster lines.
