About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I take personal pride and care in how I treat my customers and their instruments. Reputations take years to build and moments to destroy, so I treat everyone as fairly and as respectable as I would want to be treated. You can trust me to be fair, honest, hard working, and trustworthy in all I do. I am human, and if and when mistakes are made, I will make it right. If I say I will do it, I will do it. Guaranteed!

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love meeting new people, especially when we share a common interest such as music and pianos. I love the feeling of a job well done and seeing it all come together to make beautiful music at the end of a tuning session. There's nothing quite like playing a freshly tuned piano. The joy on the owner's faces and knowing that I've helped bring joyful music back into the house is well worth it for me. I love working with my hands, and this job has many opportunities for that, for sure!

Q&A

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Be sure you hire a piano technician, not just a tuner. (They don't have to use the word "technician", necessarily, but they really need to know how to make repairs and adjustments on your piano as well as tuning. Many times there are small but significant repairs and adjustments that need to be made before tuning should be done. If a string breaks during tuning, and they can, your technician will be able to repair it. I can do that for you, some who only tune cannot, or won't. It is also important that they understand how to inspect the whole piano. By that I mean, if you never see them remove the bottom board to inspect the bridge or adjust the pedals, then likely, they are only interested in tuning. Also, I would say be sure your technician has experience and is attempting to stay current in the field of piano technology by being a member of the Piano Technician's Guild, for example.
