Curtis was exactly the kind of person I was looking for to tune my piano. He's really knowledgable (found out my piano is 51 yrs old) and has a good set of tools not to mention a great ear! But my favorite part about Curtis is that he's a musician as well. I own and operate a small recording studio, I've had my piano for years but was never able to record with it. Until NOW! Do yourself a favor, if you need a piano tuned by someone who really cares, hire Curtis. He won't let you down!Dec 15, 2020VerifiedCWH Piano Tuning's reply

Curtis is very knowledgeable about pianos and how to maintain them. We recently inherited an upright piano that’s been in the family for ~40 years and Curtis was able to evaluate its condition and how much life is left in the piano. The good news is that it’s in great shape for a home piano. Curtis was very thorough when tuning the piano (it had been about 10 years since it’s last tuning). It took a couple of hours, but by the time he was done the piano sounded great. Curtis left us with a clear maintenance plan for how to keep the piano in good condition so we have it for years to come.Nov 3, 2020VerifiedCWH Piano Tuning's reply

We inherited an old baby grand piano that hadn't been tuned in about 20 years. I saw that there were a lot of good reviews for CWH Piano Tuning that I thought I would take a chance and I am sure glad that I did. He took the time to figure out the age of our piano, evaluated what he could about the condition of the piano and then really took his time to carefully tune the piano. When he was done, he played the piano for awhile and I must say, he played beautifully. I sat back and listened in another room and truly enjoyed it. Brought a tear to my eye. I would recommend Curtis in a heartbeat for his knowledge, his professionalism and just his sense of character.Oct 7, 2020VerifiedCWH Piano Tuning's reply
Thanks for all your kind and supportive words Kathy!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing is fixed. I do not charge for ala carte items. I charge a one way mileage from my home in North Minneapolis, as well as a small processing fee for digital payment options. If a piano is in rough shape, multiple sessions may be needed. This can't really be assessed until I arrive. But, it will be discussed within the first session immediately upon tuning, so there aren't any surprises. I run a referral program. If a customer refers me on to another customer, and that new customer books, then this turns into a future discounted service for the original referral.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I can offer a range of dates for scheduling. Once a customer is ready to schedule, then I need to secure a cell phone, email, and street address to secure the appointment. I will send a calendar appointment and invoice over email, and a digital business card over text. Once a client confirms the appointment by releasing this information, we are booked! Once the appointment is over, then I post pictures of the piano, it's age, and a short video clip of me playing the piano on the official Facebook Page and Instagram Profile for CWH Piano Tuning. (No owner names or private details are released on social media.) These posts are public, and are ammunition for spreading the growth of my business. I encourage clients to share this at will. Future maintenance and recommendations are always discussed. It's my job to ensure you feel confident about the state of your piano, and tangible next steps to keep it well maintained.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?In addition to earning my Certified Piano Technician credentials, I also have a Bachelors and a Masters degree in Music. I teach Music at the college level, and am an active performer managing my own independent Artist Brand. I approach my Piano Tuning in this way... as an artist and musician. Treating the piano with care (as a musician) distinguishes my work from other technicians, who tend to be more mechanical in their approach.
