- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I am definitely not the cheapest piano technician in the market but I am not by any means the most expensive. I happen to know a number of technicians that actually charge $150 for a regular tuning where my basic price considerbly lower. As the old saying goes you get what you pay for stands very strong with me but I can assure you as my customer I will give you a very fair price for my expertise and you will be very happy with the results.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Basically, I have to be there to experience the piano's condition. I will tell the customer up front what the piano requires and how much it will cost. Sometimes a piano simply cannot be tuned because of various reasons and I will alert the customer to that without them spending an arm and a leg to find out that information. I truly find joy making a piano a better instrument but sometimes it just is not the case and I will let the customer know that. I really don't believe that somebody should spend good money after a bad instrument and I will let them know about that.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have had the honor and pleasure of working with Victor Benvenuto senior who not only showed me how to become a master piano technician but also taught me how to literally make new soundboards for pianos and install them. It is because of this vast knowledgement that I am considered to be the top piano technicians in the Philadelphia area. and yet I am very mindful of pricing my services so that they are affordable and that everyone who uses my services gets the biggest bang for the buck.
