I moved from NY to South West Fl in August, 2014. I had a thriving piano tuning and repair business in Eastern Suffolk County, Long Island, for thirty years. I was living about 15 miles west of the Hamptons and found myself frequently doing concert tunings for the rich and famous. I had the privilege of meeting many great musicians and was always able to please even the most demanding ones!
I tune strictly by ear, which I feel is the best way to get the ideal temperament from a piano. Every piano is different and has a unique sound, therefore, it’s virtually impossible to tune a piano mathematically.
I was a registered member of the Piano Technicians Guild and passed a series of tests including theory, repairs, and a master tuning test.
I’ve also installed many player piano kits, converting standard grand and upright pianos into player pianos, as well as extensive experience regulating, repairing and rebuilding pianos.
I was the technician for Middle Country School District with over 60 pianos to keep in tune and good working order including special tunings for all the concerts.
