We haven't had our piano tuned for several years. We called Dick Barber to come and tune it and he was absolutely incredible. He explained what he was doing with each step and spent so much time working on the piano to bring it back to the best sound. He is such a nice man and has an astounding knowledge of the piano and all its working parts. He is a wonderful musician himself and has extremely high standards. Would very highly recommend him to anyone needing to get their piano back to its very best sound Give him a call today !!!!
