Piano Anatomy
Home Service

Hello there!

I thank you for visiting my website.

Since the early 1980s, I owned a nationally recognized Steinway grand piano restoration facility, located in Reisterstown, MD. Operated by my wife, Judy, and me, the shop restored and refinished hundreds of vintage Steinway grand pianos, as well as dozens of Mason & Hamlin, Knabe, Stieff, Baldwin, and other fine brands, these instruments having found homes all across the United States. After an enjoyable and satisfying run of 40 years, I made the decision to semi-retire and close the shop in early 2022.

I continue onward in the piano service profession, maintaining my preexisting in-home tuning clientele as well as accepting new customers who own grand pianos. I am no longer accepting new customers with vertical instruments, with apologies. I find myself scheduling work about two days a week, and still love the instrument and the profession. I remain passionate. I specialize in the care and service of Steinway grand pianos - I built a 40-year rebuilding career with this approach and priority.

Thank you.
