-Jingles for your business-
I was born and raised in Lawton, Ok. I am happy to stay here and be of help musically
to anyone. I have always ben able to sing as a child and
I started at the age of 12 on trumpet, then moved to percussion,
and now mainly just play piano/synth. I have a lot of positive experiences from which to draw. I started playing
piano/organ at church at the age of 14. Been playing at church ever since. I played about 25 seasons as a percussionist
with the Lawton Philharmonic Orchestra. I have played many musicals, accompanied many soloists and ensembles, and love
to do MIDI sequencing making custom karaoke soundtracks in my home.
I also did 10 years at the retail music level selling
everything from sheet music to instruments and accessories. I then taught school music for 10 years at the junior high
level. I have been tuning full time since 2003. I am also a private pilot, love to juggle and really like the
healing power of humor through stand-up comedy or sit-down comedy (if I'm at the piano). I am also adjunct faculty at Cameron
University in Lawton, Ok. I play piano for the Centennial Singers Choir, an audition-only group at Cameron University.
When it comes to servicing your piano, I
will bring honesty, integrity, and competitive pricing to you with my piano service. I have pursued piano service with a lot
of forethought, planning, and study. I also find it very fun, rewarding and very interesting. I usually work alone because
no one really wants to stick around to hear a piano being tuned! I have met so many nice people along the way and I look forward
to meeting you as well!
I also apprenticed for a year with a very capable piano tuner named Bob Sanders, RPT. Bob has
moved to Las Cruces, NM. He studied with the late-great Jimmy Gold. Let me know how I can help you. If I am not the
right piano tech for you, I'll tell you help you find the right one!
I have recently tuned for: Harry Connick, Jr., John Legend, John Cougar Mellencamp, Robin Thicke, Bob
Dylan, Sarah McLachlan, Tony Bennett and Paul Simon.
