Piano Tuning

Piano is in tune after move. He was a bit late but promptly notified me which was great. Used gloves and mask during tuning.

Piano Tuning

Jarrod did a great job tuning our piano. He was thoughtful, courteous and extremely knowledgeable. We will have him back next year when the piano needs tuning again. Thanks Jarrod😊

Piano Tuning

Jarrod concentrated on his work and took 2 hours to complete the job. In the end my piano hasn't that good in a while so I have to give Jarrod the credit.

Piano Tuning

Jarrod was on time and did a great job. My piano needed a lot of work and he did it all in a timely manner. It’s like I have a brand new piano again. He was detailed and took some extra time making sure it was all good to go before he left. Super pleased with Jarod’s work.

Piano Tuning

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!

  • 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.
