Hello! A little bit about me as a piano technician: I studied seriously with a piano technician who has 20+ years of experience. I believe that in a job such as this, continual education is key. I am a member of the Piano Technicians’ Guild which means I regularly attend meetings, confer with my colleagues, and attend conventions to improve my skills. I want to make sure that your piano receives the care that it needs. I am a piano teacher and player myself so I know how important it is to have your instrument in tune and in good playing condition. Thanks for taking the time to look through my page and I hope to connect with you if I seem like a good fit for what your piano needs.
