Introduction: By the way..G.M.I.M.I.T. means.....Graduate Member of the Institute of Musical Instrument Technology....of London.... I am also the holder of the1968 Evelyn Broadwood Scholarship award . ..from The Worshipfull Company of Musicians of London.. I have received both vaccines and boosters shots as of March 1st 2021.. I have just tested Negative on August 17th. 2022. I provide excellent Piano tuning, and specializing in regulating the grand piano action so that it performs identically the same way, weather you are playing softly (pp), or loud (ff). You can check it out!! Go to your grand piano or any grand piano, and strike a chord softly (pp) a number of times, and you will notice the hammers will be hitting the strings three or more times as it floats around uncontrollable. And if you strike a loud chord ( ff) and hold it down...then come up slowly... the hammers will pop up and float around before it returns down to its rest position. That is two extra motion that is not required; which means you need to CALL ME.... right now and make an appointment, to have me regulate your grand piano, using the correct sequence of adjustments. Then you will enjoy having full control of the hammers, weather you are playing your piano softly or loud. When l regulate your grand piano...you won't have to have it done ever again...this is a one time adjustment. The cost is only $950. The grand piano of today has an accelerated repetition action. So when I regulate the action, you will never loose control of the hammers during your performance, because I know the proper sequence to regulating the grand piano action. Here is a little about my training.. ....... I am a Graduate Member of the Institute of Musical Instrument Technology (London). holder of the Evelyn Broadwood Scholarship Award for 1968, from the Worshipful Company of Musicians (London); (the first time it has ever been awarded outside of the United Kingdom), also in 1978 l passed the Examination of the Piano Technician Guild (PTG), and now I have over fifty years of experience which will provide you with the Ultimate in service, Integrity, and Professionalism.

I usually never write reviews. But I must tell you about my experience today. Calvin Robertson came to tune my Boston piano, today. His complete and total knowledge of pianos and many years of experience shined through at once. Not only did he tune and raise the pitch (which was badly needed), but he did a complete regulation (also very much needed). He spent a great deal of time working on the piano and all I can say is - this gentleman is a top-notch "5 STAR" professional. I highly recommend him. You will be very satisfied with his work and high level of professionalism. I felt like a friend was here working on my piano. I will absolutely have him come back for the next tuning (as I will now do the proper thing and have it tuned with the normal regularity this beautiful instrument rightly deserves).

Details: Concert grand • Last piano tuning more than 2 years ago • Piano played a few times a year • More than 10 years old

My piano was in dire need of a tuning. Calvin answered my request very quickly, was available right away, showed up right on time, and gave me great advice about how to keep my piano well tuned. I will definitely reach out to him again in the future and highly recommend him!
