Music has always been a huge part of my life. At age 11. I began playing music professionally. At age16 I traveled through Europe, touring with a group of young musicians. My love of music took me from my home in the San Francisco Bay area to Scottsdale, AZ where I joined a popular local band. It was during this time in Arizona that I developed an interest in piano tuning. In 1975, I began my apprenticeship in the art of piano tuning and rebuilding in Phoenix, AZ.
In 1977, my wife Suzanne began her apprenticeship in piano repair and rebuilding. With our training completed in 1978, we were ready to start our own business, so we moved back to our native San Francisco Bay area settling in San Leandro.

To achieve the best possible tuning for your piano, you should provide a quiet environment for the tuner to work in. Every noise or sound within hearing distance of the tuner may compromise the quality of your tuning. There are some sounds within the household that can impede the tuner's hearing. Here are just a few:
Loud voices, children, or pets
Dishes clanging and running water
TV, radio, clocks
Vacuum cleaner or lawn mower
With your help the tuner will be able to achieve the best possible tuning for your piano.
