About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I have been in business since 2003. The majority of my clients have been private individuals, though I also service pianos for institutions, businesses, and performing artists.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Each client has a particular musical personality. Every piano I tune is different from the next and is part of a 300-year history of the instrument's development.

    Quick to reply to my request, and he also kindly helped me out when I had given him the wrong info for our school's tax number the first time. A great value for excellent service. Looking forward to working again together.

    Great work at a great value! Broke a string while tuning piano and was upfront and honest about the situation. Came back, without asking for payment, to fix at a mutually agreed upon future date. Will definitely use Dennis again for all of our piano (1914 Bush & Gerts) needs. Thank you Dennis!

    Satisfied with his service and pleasant personality
    Dennis is friendly, courteous and honest in his evaluation and tuning my piano which had not been tuned for more than 10 years. He worked meticulously and professionally using both his hearing and electronic instrument. I was happy that he was willing to squeeze in my appointment on his busy schedule in Libertyville on that day. He arrived punctually and immediately started the job, worked intensely over an hour to finish. After his tuning, the piano sounds great. I asked him to contact me for tuning next year when he is working in Libertyville. Overall I am very satisfied with his service and very pleased in meeting him.
    Dennis H. Jan 14, 2017

    Kurt, your kind evaluation is very much appreciated.

    Dennis was here to tune my piano, which hadn't been tuned in a couple of years. His service was quick and of excellent quality. I will definitely have him back. I have been playing the piano for 25 years and studied piano in university for several years, and he is the best we have had.

    EXCELLENT SERVICE AND PERFECT TUNING
    Very professional and prompt service with EXCELLENT tuning. The voicing is superb and I am extremely particular. I have lived in 9 states and have had many piano tuners. Northern Strings Piano is in the top layer. Pricing is moderate and well worth it. ( My credentials: Piano teacher for over 35 years(retired); Grade school music teacher)

    Thanks Dennis!
    Dennis has been tuning for our store for many years. He does a great job, is on time, and always offers good advice. We have 4 pianos here and they get quite a workout. We bought an older Hamilton upright last year and he brought it back to life! We recommend him to all our customers.
