Tune that piano!

Your Key to Better Living Through Music!

I was born and raised in Lawton, Ok. At the age of ten and in the fifth grade my music teacher, Donna D. Nauman told me I could sing!  Been in music ever since.
Sixth grade I started at the age of 11 on trumpet, then moved to percussion in the 9th grade (because I could play mallets due to playing the piano), 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 I also have a studio and make custom karaoke soundtracks in my home. Mainly pagaent contestants that need a specific song in a specific key that is a specific length. Rules! 
I also spent almost10 years at the retail music level selling everything from sheet music to instruments and accessories.  I then taught school music for almost 10 years at the junior high level.  I have been tuning full time since 2004.  I am also a private pilot, love to juggle and really crave and need the healing power of humor through stand-up comedy or sit-down comedy (if I happen to be at the piano). 
 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 normally work alone because USUALLY no one really wants to stick around to hear a piano being tuned!  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 help you find the one.
Since 2009 I have tuned for: Harry Connick, Jr., John Legend, John Cougar Mellencamp, Robin Thicke, Bob Dylan, Sarah McLachlan, Tony Bennett, Don Henley, Marie Osmond, Steely Dan,  and Paul Simon. Which ones did I meet?  Only Harry Connick, Jr.  He is the real thing! So sincere and genuine. He carries his own personal Steinway Model D (9ft.) on the road with him!

An upright piano (aka studio, console, spinet, consolette, vertical, and there are probably more)
This Yamaha upright might be called a vertical or studio?
There are other, fancier names but you get the idea. 
Just know the taller the piano the LONGER the string is, so, much better sound! 


A GREAT way to memorialize a piano by repurposing it into another functional piece of furniture! 


Real ivory has a grain pattern!

It's alright, the light is on.
