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
Jay got my antique piano back on pitch, no strings broken! He was responsive, fixed all kinds of things in the piano that I thought were unfixable. Also was very patient with my eight year old's many curiosity questions. Very happy!Aug 11, 2017Verified
- 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.
