I am a graduate of Davidson College, a U.S. Army veteran, and I have been a musician since age 14. I joined the Piano Technician Guild in 2004, found a mentor in Charlotte, NC, and began an informal apprentice program that lasted more than five years. In 2007, I completed all the written, technical and aural exams to attain the status of Registered Piano Technician.
I regularly attend monthly and yearly training events, and I assist other technicians in upgrading their skills as well. My association with technicians from all over the country has had a major impact on my professional development. I am constantly exposed to new ideas, I continue to improve my techniques, and I never stop learning. This enthusiasm, passion and skill is what I bring to your piano.
To schedule your piano for service, please call, email or text me.
Enjoy life, play more music, and stay tuned,
I look forward to meeting you and your piano.
This is a typical repair when rebuilding a piano. The techniques here follow steps shown in Steve Brady's publication A Piano Technician's Guide to Field Repairs. I used a #8 bridge pin as a sizing caul.
