Introduction: Before you go any further, understand that I feel that BLACK LIVES MATTER! I provide the most professional and complete piano technical service in the area. Also, your safety is my concern which is why I practice safe social distancing procedures during my visit. Even though I have already had my two covid vaccine shots, I still wear a mask during my visit. I also tune for large venue artists such Alanis Mosrrisette at the Mann Arts Center and I get tested every time I come to tune. Not only am I a piano tuner but I am also a piano Rebuilder and my knowledge of the piano will help your instrument become a more responsive and beautiful sounding instrument. I will give you a totally honest assessment of your instrument to help you make a decision as to what direction you want to go. While I enjoy tuning for private homes, I also have the privlage of tuning for public schools, Community College of Philadelphia, places of worship and venues such as The Tower Theater, The TLA, The Philmore, Painted Bride, The Wilma Theater, The Prince Theater, also the international recording studio Turtle Studios in Philadelphia. I've tuned for Rickie Lee Jones, John Legend, Bob Dylan, Josh Groban and Neil Young to name a few. In other words, I will treat your piano like I do the above mentioned. I truly enjoy seeing the response of my customers when I tune the piano from where it was two after I am done. I have also had a lot of success in improving the performance of their personal musical instrument and making it a much more responsive piano. my joy is seeing the customers happiness the results of my work.

Piano Tuning

Mr. Krzywonos was prompt, professional and informative. I truly appreciate how he took the time to educate me about my piano (e.g. value, needed repairs, condition, etc). Although he came to tune my piano, he was kind enough to even do a minor repair. Thank you Marty. See you next year.

Piano Tuning

I received an older piano as a gift and it needed a complete overhaul. Marty had to perform "major surgery" on all 88 keys, and now it is a beautiful sounding instrument! We will definitely be having him back for annual tuning. Highly recommend! Thank you for all your work and your time Marty!

Piano Tuning

Marty was outstanding. He arrived at the set time and explained his work as he completed it. He was very knowledgable about pianos including ours that dates back to the 1920's. It has been restored and as someone who restores, he could explain all aspects of the restoration. He did an excellent job tuning and fixed a pedal that seemed impossible to fix. I would highly recommend him and am looking forward to him fixing our daughter's piano. Super job Marty. many thanks.

FAQs

  • 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.
