Read reviews that mention:
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
The basic tuning fee is $150. Any additional work will be quoted after an evaluation of the piano and its needs. No work will be done without permission from customers. No suprise fees! Attention to detail, knowledge, experience and skills are worth more than a cheap price.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I always evaluate each piano before doing any work to make sure it will hold tune, that it will play as well as possible after my work is complete. I thoroughly explain the condition so the customer understands the piano condition and any reasons for extra work.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I learned to tune pianos while in high school and received my first payment for a tuning when I earned my drivers license in 1970. Tuned my way through college at University of Tennessee. Graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in music eduction. My career began as a band director in Northern Virginia. It became quickly evident that my earning capability and piano technical skills would be better served in full time piano service. This began in 1979. I passed the Piano Technicians Guild written, technical and tuning exams in 1980 to become a Registered Piano Technician. Ongoing training is a must to stay up to date on the latest technology. I have studied with piano builders at Fazioli factory in Italy, Bösendorder in Austria and Schimmel in Germany. Kawai, Yamaha and Steinway and most all manufacturers seminars around the country the Piano Technicians Guild ongoing education.
