Introduction: Hi, my name is Jeffrey Baker and making pianos sound great for Billy Joel, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Daniel Baremboim, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, and many, many others has been my career since 1978. Whether you have a pre-war Steinway, a modern Yamaha piano, or just the old family upright, chances are I'm familiar with it. My clientele includes concert halls, grammy-winning composers, A-list musicians, top recording studios, and residential customers as well .

Jeff was responsive and got back to me quickly. He showed up on the appointment date/time and did the job. He is knowledgeable and fixed my out-of-tune piano within an hour. The piano sounds great again and I really enjoy it! It's always more fun to hear the sweet sounds of the instrument the way it should be. I highly recommend him. Thanks Jeff!

He arrived a few minutes early and meticulously tuned my piano. It really needed it after being moved from another state. He adjusted the dampers and made it sound great. Usually piano tuners charge more than the quoted amount if they do anything besides tuning, but I appreciate that he stuck to the quoted price. I will call him again.
