Having been a professional pianist for 40 years, I tune and service pianos from the musician's point of view. I bring my decades of performance experience to every piano I encounter. For the beginner and experienced player alike, there's nothing more satisfying than the sound of a properly tuned piano!
I am a member of the Piano Technicians Guild as a Registered Piano Technician (RPT), a designation afforded those members of the Guild who have passed a series of rigorous piano tuning and repair exams. I began my career as a piano tuner and technician in 1990 in Los Angeles as an apprentice to long-time Yamaha consultant and renowned piano technician and rebuilder, Richard Davenport, RPT. After moving to Portland in 1992, I worked extensively with Yamaha and other piano brands as a tuner and technician at Cascade Piano. In the years since, I have been affiliated with Sherman Clay/Moe's Pianos, the Pearl District Steinway dealer; Classic Pianos, Eastside Portland's premier piano retailer; and Portland Piano Co.
My client base has grown to well over 500, including individuals and families, recording studios, hotels, restaurants, schools and churches. Also, I have tuned pianos for such prominent performers as Harry Connick, Jr. and Pink Martini and at illustrious Portland performance venues, including the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall and Keller Auditorium. I look forward to including you on my list of satisfied tuning clients!
