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 absolutely fabulous. He is extremely knowledgeable and a very upstanding person: he arrived on time, was efficient, and completed a last minute job with expertise and even gave us information about our piano that we never knew. I would highly recommend him for your tuning and repair needs, as well as any last minute needs you may have. Jay, thank you for being a consummate professional. Excellent service from a professional at a terrific value.Nov 1, 2019Verified

- 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.
