Durante's Music Technical Services
About this pro
The above terms describe Tom Durante perfectly.Jul 23, 2017Verified
I chose Durante's Music because he was the only one who responded on Thumbtack and I went to his website and was most impressed by what I saw there. He gave me an appointment two days from my call. He called to confirm his arrival and did a good job tuning my Yamaha upright piano and favored us by playing two pieces before he left. Tom was very courteous and has a friendly personality. I certainly recommend him.Mar 16, 2017Verified

- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?I've been doing some key rebushing jobs lately which entails taking the keys out of the piano and cleaning up the wooden key stick as well as removing the wool from the balance point and the front of the key to create a more natural feeling key movement.
