Steve brings out the best qualities of a piano. I can always tell I’m playing one he’s worked on from the evenness of the action and the remarkable sweet singing tone. He rebuilt my 45 year old Kawai and I couldn’t be happier with the result. It’s as if he gifted me with a brand new instrument.

— Dean Williamson, Conductor/Coach & Music Director, Nashville Opera



Skye is very professional and did a fine job on my 60-year-old Steinway.  I do not use just anybody and she is as good a tuner as I’ve experienced.  I will use her for additional work on the piano in the future.

— Jane Parish, Client
