Introduction: I’m a dedicated tuner/technician with years of experience in private homes, concert halls, and recording studios. I initially apprenticed under one of California’s top technicians, taught piano technology at the Apollo School of Music & Arts, and had the privilege of working and learning from some of the finest piano rebuilders in the San Francisco area before taking my skill set out east. It will be my pleasure to free your family piano of sticky keys, squeaks and buzzes, or make your professional-grade piano produce angelic tones from a blisteringly fast piano action. A little about me: My name is Levi. I have an engineering degree with a background in circuit design, manufacturing, and hand assembly of guitar effects pedals. I love music. Like a lot. I play the bass, piano and a smattering of other instruments. I’ve toured the country in bands, composed for the likes of PBS, had a short stint as a jingle writer and am a regular foley artist for various video games. In my spare time I create educational content for my Tiktok audience of over 100,000 regular viewers. Centered around tuning theory, acoustic science and AI generated music. The goal for my videos is to find new crossroads between the disciplines of math, science and music, and inspire a new approach to how we think about music. Services include • Tuning/Pitch Raising • Key repairs • Pedals adjustments and repairs • and much much more!

Levi was awesome! He brought my grandmother’s piano back to life after it hasn’t been tuned in years. He was responsive, punctual and very professional. We will absolutely hire him again for all our future tuneups.

As someone who enjoys tinkering, I began researching tuning our upright piano myself, which had been sitting for several years prior to the previous owners leaving it for us when we moved in. I quickly realized it’s more involved and best be handled by the pros. In steps Levi who spent over three hours meticulously tuning, tweaking, repairing, and cleaning our 1920s-era piano. Wanting to see how to go about the process, I watched him work his craft and he made great conversation answering questions I had and filling me in on the details. He was honest with his assessment and brought the piano back to life. Couldn’t be happier with how it all went and will be bringing him back in the future!

Levi was excellent. I had him tune a badly out of tune piano where he had to go over it multiple times. I think they call it a pitch raise, and he adjusted keys to fix a sticking problem. When thumbtacks connected us, it was really easy to just give him a call to talk over the work needed so he could give an accurate estimate. Very pleased with his work and will definitely hire him again in the future!

No pressure. We told Levi the piano he would be tuning was for our Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter, the guest entertainer at our nonprofit's fundraising gala. He made that piano sing, well, you get it, and cleaned every inch of it. She was thrilled with the piano. Levi is a whiz and delight to work with. Total pro.

Levi did such a great job tuning our new to us 60 year old piano. He did not shy away from it, even though it is a spinet. He was extremely patient and knowledgeable. He put up with many questions and interruptions with a smile! The piano has already gotten so much use since being tuned and it sounds great!
