About this pro
Marc was great. Fixed a double strike on our antique piano and tuned it. He explained everything and was super responsive. Highly recommendMay 20, 2018Verified
We hired Marc to tune our old Acrosonic. It had been neglected by disuse for many years. He discovered a badly uncalibrated action, and advised that tuning would be worthless without addressing the mechanical action. He quoted a reasonable price, and took the mechanism back to his shop. Within a few days, he returned and reinstalled it, tuned it, and we marveled at the results. We would recommend Marc to anyone who needs tuning or repairs. Excellent work!Dec 21, 2016Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Piano Doctor is McKinney based but services the entire DFW Metroplex. We are by far The Cheapest Doc in Town, with a piano servicing, tuning and repairing priced as low as the lowest in the industry. Texting or e-mailing is usually the fastest way to communicate.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?That is usually only done during the first 15 years of business. BM, MM, Doctor Of Musical Arts (DMA Cand.) After that you better know your garden...
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I was born with an incredible auditory faculty and it early on became the most natural avenue for me. After having finished Masters accreditation as a piano technician, I moved to Jerusalem to further my music education. I spent months after months just studying orchestral rehearsals. One day Arthur Rubinstein was performing (with the Israel Symphony Orchestra) and his private piano tuner was a no-show. Rubinstein needed his concert grand tuned every 30 minutes...I was in the room and offered my services. At the end of the rehearsals Rubinstein took the podium and addressed the orchestra and said:"I want you to know about the dilemma I had with my tuner's absence. This young gentleman took on the job and it is safe to say that I have never played on a better tuned instrument." My career took off as a rocket after that!
