My interest in piano technology began when I was a student at the University of Maryland. After graduating from UM in 1975, I entered a four-year rebuilding apprenticeship with Wendell Eaton, one of the area's finest piano technicians. This extraordinary opportunity offered intensive individualized training, including tuning, voicing, home service, and rebuilding. After completing this apprenticeship, I established my own business, now in its 42nd year.
The Piano Technicians Guild has always been an important part of my professional life. I have taught at national and regional PTG conferences and have served two terms as president of its Washington, D.C. Chapter. My support of the musical community includes giving presentations to area teacher and student groups.
Today, my business focuses on piano service for private and professional venues, action rebuilding, and consulting.
