If you are looking for an experienced piano technician with fair, reasonable rates, especially in the south metro, then let me know. Have you been unsatisfied in any way with the performance of your instrument but unsure what may be the cause? Are you basically happy with the overall tone of your piano but unsatisfied with previous tuning stability?

Does the piano hold a tuning well, but plays too heavy and/or bright? Or, do you simply need a reliable, experienced piano technician located in the south metro area? I will personally address any piano concerns relying on decades of experience and a national reputation for excellence in the field.


“It is my goal and pleasure to optimize the full potential of your acoustic keyboard, no matter if it’s a simple spinet, studio upright, parlor grand or harpsichord in your home, or concert grand in a performance venue or large church.”

I have the ability to customize tuning and performance specs of most any major piano make, and will absolutely guarantee your satisfaction with any piano project we undertake. I have worked with professional musicians for over 30 years and have offered instruction to other piano technicians for almost as long. If your piano has problems then let me take a closer look, if it doesn’t, then let’s see how much more beautiful it can sound with a master tuning.


I presently work full-time for the music department at St. Olaf College and have been their primary piano technician on-staff for the past 30 years. This experience has provided me the opportunity to excel and greatly refine my specialized concert skills working with a large number of renown faculty and guest artists with discriminating tastes. I have also worked with legendary technicians from around the country on various restoration projects with amazing results.


Regardless of the make and model of your piano my Craftsmanship is guaranteed to optimize the potential we identify in your piano. It’s likely a custom-crafted master tuning could make all the difference, but especially if you have more complicated geometry and/or ratio problems in the action, don’t settle for less. Treat your piano to a master tuning and let us discuss it’s potential.
