Born and raised in Toronto, Alex is the third generation of the Hahn family to operate Paul Hahn & Co. Simply put, pianos are in her blood. Sweeping floors in the workshop in her teens, and learning each step of the restoration process under the guidance of two head Technicians, Ron Pickering and Gerry Carlson, gave Alex an intimate knowledge of the piano from two perspectives. A natural ‘people person’, Alex’s energy and knowledge have helped countless customers find or restore the perfect piano. Alex was educated at the University of Waterloo, where she earned a degree in Environmental Studies. She lives in the Summerhill neighbourhood of Toronto with her husband Allan, hound Bauer and cat Gerry. Their eldest son, Allister, completed a finance degree from Dalhousie University in Halifax. Andrew is at St. Francis Xavier, and Allie is currently taking a “Gap Year”, preparing for university next year. Alex is pleased to have resumed piano lessons after a 25-year hiatus. When she isn’t in the store, she enjoys travelling, camping in northern Ontario, and long walks with her dog.
