He believes that, first of all, it is extremely important to identify the musical interests of the customer. Once you know the needs of the customer, then you can determine the best way to meet those needs. Usually, a well maintained piano will only need regular tuning, with periodic additional regulation.

If there is a situation where the instrument is not serving adequately, he will make recommendations. There are occasions when action regulation or hammer voicing can transform a piano from an instrument that is totally unsatisfactory to an instrument that meets the needs of the owner very well.

As a technician he might advise upgrading an existing instrument, if that is the most cost effective way to meet the customer’s requirements. If purchasing a new or rebuilt piano, it is important to determine the way the piano will be used, to determine which instrument would best suit the situation. His many years of experience can help you with these important decisions.

There are a few web pages providing additional information on piano rebuilding, piano reconditioning, how to care for your piano and pitch raising and the benefits of music for children.

He is now servicing pianos in Penticton. His fees are comparable with local rates.

If you are looking to purchase a piano privately, he can evaluate the piano to see if it will meet your musical requirements.
