ATLANTA PIANO TUNING BY EAR
2018 Top Pro
About this pro
I am the best, tried and true. I love harmony and balance, and I enjoy communicating with my customers...some of which I have had the pleasure of knowing for over 30 years. Most important, I tune by ear, not electronically. This is a dying art, I am afraid. But I will tune aurally (by ear) for the rest of my life. It is the only proper way to tune a piano. My son Manny Jr is an integral part of this business. He is an outstanding piano tuner and technician, with expertise in all areas of piano service. He tunes BY EAR, not electronically. Needless to say, I am very proud that he has followed in my footsteps. The feeling of accomplishment when piano is brought back to life. By making adjustments in the tuning to room size, carpet or hardwood, and the particular customer's likes and dislikes, the soul of the piano can express itself . Aural tuning allows me to do the very best job possible, and that makes me happy.
Customers rated this pro highly for responsiveness, value, and professionalism.

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I red up on new technologies...but honestly, tuners who tune by ear share a secret with JS Bach...If you can master that secret, then you have a successful trde for life.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I was in the music industry as a vocalist (opera and night club) and my father arranged for me to be tested at Steinway and sons in Astoria NY. I was one of 15 applicants (of 75)who passed and decided to do the 5 year apprenticeship at Steinway in tuning and tone regulating. And the rest is history.
- What types of customers have you worked with?Tuning, tone regulating, fixing broken hammers, strings...cleaning of the instrument, mostly tuning and in home repair.
