I would have selected value and punctuality too, but the app doesn't let me. Good communication, & he spent extra time working on my piano (the whole thing was off by half a pitch, yes I DID want it tuned true, not just to itself). And I could tell when he was done because he did a few jazz runs that brought a big smile to my face. He'll be checking back in a couple weeks to make sure the tuning stays good. Highly recommended!Dec 9, 2019VerifiedJarrod Champion's reply
Thanks so much, Regina! It was a pleasure!
Jarrod tuned my piano beautifully. I would hire him for next time and recommend him highly.Jul 25, 2019Verified
Jarrod played at my husband’s 40th birthday party in our home. He was super easy to work with, came a month before the event to tune our piano & perform a song. He was very professional, always responsive and catered the music towards my husband’s taste. When he arrived I was busy with other vendors and he needed no direction. He was set up and ready to roll without me having to say a word. He played guest requests, learned my husband’s favorite song (and played at the perfect moment) and was a joy to have at the event. There wasn’t a guest that didn’t compliment the music and ask how I found him. I highly recommend Jarrod!Jan 22, 2018Verified

Thank you Donna and Tim! The pleasure was mine!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Each situation and event, in my eyes, is different and should be treated as such. My approach to pricing is to talk with each prospective client and come up with a pricing situation that works for everyone.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to find out what each customer has in mind for their own personal vision. Whether that be through a phone conversation, an in-person meeting, or simply an email explanation, the more I know about the person or event I'm looking to provide entertainment for, the easier it is to put my experience to work for them, creating a custom game-plan that everyone can get excited about.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I've been a pianist, singer, bandleader, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist for over 20 years. I've played music with bands of all genres and styles of music from eras spanning the 1920's to the 2000's. I've traveled the country and many parts of the world playing music and have learned from everywhere I've been and everyone I've played with. I'm a self-taught musician who specializes in jazz, blues, soul, swing, rock, contemporary, Motown, classic rock, oldies, and more. Diversity and the ability to listen has made me the player I am today.
