I provide quality in-home piano service which includes expert tuning, repair & regulation.
Proven aural tuning techniques, in addition to the use of state-of-the-art tuning equipment are utilized which result in the most accurate and stable tunings possible. Minor repairs and cleaning are included in my basic tuning charge.
Considering purchasing a used piano? A pre-purchase inspection is strongly suggested. I check for problems that could potentially require expensive repair such as loose tuning pins and splitting in bridges as well as the soundboard. Also considered are condition of the strings, hammers and regulation. A substantial discount on the first tuning is offered if the inspected piano is purchased.
My experience includes apprenticeship with an expert tuner/technician as well as eighteen years of experience involving keyset fabrication. As a Registered Piano Technician with the Piano Technicians Guild, I have successfully subjected my skills to the scrutiny of some of the region’s finest piano technicians. The entire tuning portion of the PTG exams was passed with high scores using only a tuning fork for pitch reference and without the use of an electronic tuning device (not required by the PTG).
My background also includes extensive experience in piano teaching, performance and accompanying with a bachelor’s degree in piano performance.
