My goal is to help your piano sound and play its best!

Consistent tuning and regulation help keep your piano in tip top shape. Clicks, clacks, clunks and improper regulation interfere with the enjoyment of your piano - I am also qualified to do repair and restoration work.

Looking forward to meeting you and your pianos!

“I think you did one of the best if not the best tuning I’ve ever had. Bravo!! And thank you!! Sounds absolutely amazing!”
— Colleen O.
Would like to say thank you for the wonderful work you did tuning the pianos... both the other organist and myself immediately noticed the sound of the two instruments together. We both agreed that it has been a very long time since the two instruments blended so well together. There were many positive comments from people in the congregation about the sound of the piano as well... I have also been enjoying my piano at home, so thank you very much.

I would like to thank Stephen for his exceptional work on my upright Hailun. My piano was not only out of tune, it also had several technical issues with the hammers and pedal. Stephen was knowledgeable, focused and friendly, working for over four hours straight on my piano. In the end, he brought my piano back to life and I fell in love with it all over again. I highly recommend his services, and will be working with him again in the future.
