Why I fix Pianos?
As a musician, and always someone handy at fixing things, I decided learn and develop a practical skill in the music business. I am a registered member of piano the Piano Technicians Guild. To obtain the RPT classification, a PTG member must pass three examinations. (click on link for PTG details)
Twenty five years ago I served a 2 year apprenticeship with a Piano Tuner / Technician by the name of Jim Coleman who was working for the Penn State University at the time.
Jim and I did just about everything imaginable in regard to the repair of the 50 plus mainly Steinway Piano inventory. He even showed me how three skinny men could move a concert grand up three flights of steps. -Which I still debate with myself over how useful this particular skill is.......After graduating college I ended up owning a music store in the Mid Hudson Valley of NY where I serviced pianos for many years.
I now run my business out of Berlin, CT serving Central Connecticut and Central, Metro-West and Boston Massachusetts.
Why Call Me?
I've been around a while in the music business. My travels have taken me into many unique musical situations as a performer, sound man, piano technician and business person. I've worn and continue to wear many hats with all the musical crowds from educators and performers in classical, Jazz , country and rock and roll... ..-So we should be able to get together on the matter at hand....
