I first began piano tuning while a student at West Virginia where
I received a Bachelor of Music degree in 1976. Moving to Rochester
after graduation, I began working with other piano technicians to
learn more about tuning, repair, and restoration. I also joined the
Piano Technicians Guild and attended many of the guild's sponsored
seminars to further my expertise. Passing the guild tuning and repair
exams, I became a registered piano technician in 1991, and have also
had training at the Steinway factory in Long Island City, NY.
In addition to piano service I also taught piano privately from 1974-2003.
