I've always loved and played the piano. The piano was at the heart of my Father's family. Dad would come home from work, sit down, relax and play all the big classics. My aunt could play anything in any key....she also taught piano and played for church. My Grandmother played for the silent movies when she was just a girl....and she played for church and taught piano lessons as well. When we were all together, other instruments were added in for impromptu, family concerts. The piano was destined to be part of my life, and I feel blessed to have the ability to make the piano part of my customers' lives as well.
Servicing and moving pianos has been my lifes work since 1987. The need for continuing education is vital, so as a member of the Piano Technicians Guild (PTG) I attend many national and regional PTG conventions. I feel my services are based on my love for the instrument and customer satisfaction. My goal is to always give the customer more than their money's worth. Phone calls are returned promptly, and I make my services available at your convenience. I am proud to offer my services as a skilled and experienced New Mexico piano tuner. My passion is to provide my clients with quality New Mexico piano tuning.
