2018 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony

Since the piano industry is unregulated I know the importance of continuing education, qualifications, and doing my best to provide work that speaks for itself.

 

I was blessed in the amount of experience and opportunities I received early on. Taking care of pianos in multiple public schools and still having time to commute to monthly study groups learning piano repair and action regulation in the basement of NYC Steinway Hall. Eventually, I was able to help with concert tuning at a few concert venues in the Hamptons, world-renown Paul Schenly's PianoFest, and the Perlman Music Program. To help become a well-rounded technician I began helping at a large Steinway rebuilding company in Queens performing action regulation. I also decided to undergo colleague review and became a Registered Piano Technician in the Piano Technicians Guild.

 

After a couple more years I found myself in Ohio and was sent to Yamaha piano training in California for the PPSS Performance Piano Service Seminar. This placed me on a call list for Yamaha's guest artist concert services. I tuned for a few events throughout Clevland including the 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony and for Charity Tillemann-Dick, a really talented opera singer who had just recovered from a double lung transplant at Cleveland Clinic.

 

Soon I was tuning pianos regularly at Tiffin University and helping as a piano tuner and piano consultant at various annual piano events in the midwest. Among these are Pittsburgh opera, Cleveland State University, and Concordia University in Ann Arbor Michigan.

 

I came into the DFW area in late 2019 and since then I've subcontracted with various companies providing piano service at the University of Texas Dallas, Midwestern State University, and several religious institutions. I was fortunate enough to be introduced to a Kawai MPA Master Piano Artisan from Japan and continue to learn even more through his guidance. As I started to get recognized for my work in DFW, I was referred to tune for Steinway artist Danny Wright who just released his 60th piano album and also tuned the piano used to create the Meyer Felt Piano sound sample.
