Great piano tuner! Will use him from now on for my annual tunings.Mar 13, 2016Verified
Wow! Jay is the most knowledgeable, efficient, and competent piano tuner (technician) I have encountered. After he worked on it, my piano has sounded better than ever since I bought it used eight years ago (including after previous tunings). This time, it was badly out of tune after a move. He completed the basic tuning in just over an hour and asked me if I would like some additional work done to take care of some other minor issues, which he accomplished expertly. After he left and I was practicing, another rattling issue arose that was not apparent at the time he was here. He returned later the same day and took care of it at no cost, including significant disassembly; it was quite an unusual problem involving loose jacks, I believe, that required problem solving on his part, and he did more than he was asked to ensure the problem would not arise again. I would give Jay ten stars if possible!Aug 20, 2015Verified
Jay was able to get my really old and out of shape piano back into a playable state. Despite not being quite concert pitch, I’m really happy that the piano is playable now. Thanks Jay!Nov 21, 2018Verified
5 stars across the board for Jay's piano tuning! He responded right off the bat with answers to my questions and showed up promptly. My piano is from 1919 and needed a bit more work than just a tuning, but he was done in under 30 minutes! I love playing this piano now. Thanks, Jay!Oct 15, 2018Verified
Jay was pleasant, on time, didn't judge that the piano needs a lot of work, tuned and fixed what he could on site and will come back to bring some the piano to his shop to fix the rest all in time for my son who plays the piano and is visiting soon, to have a piano to play. Definitely recommend.Apr 20, 2018Verified
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I ask them to tell me about the piano - last time it was tuned, do all the notes work, are they happy with the way it is currently play, etc? When I am there I let them know all of their options.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been a musician most of my life. I graduated from Berklee College of Music as a drummer. I then graduated from the North Bennett Street School and became a certified piano technician. I also apprenticed at a piano shop.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Career change. I was an audio engineer and I have always been intrigued by the mechanics of pianos. I decided to take the leap. All these years later I am very glad I did.
