Piano and Harpsichord Tuning
Berkshire County, MA | Northern Litchfield County, CT | Eastern Columbia County, NY
When I got my first harpsichord at the age of 17, I was faced with having to tune it myself. This was before the world of tuning apps. That’s where my tuning journey began. As a harpsichordist I use many different tuning temperaments according to historical period, key signature, performance program, musical taste, instrument, etc. For piano tuning I use the customary equal temperament, although I have tuned pianos to historical temperaments (Peter Serkin). It’s a fascinating subject how to tune! As a musician and performer, I know the value of a beautifully tuned instrument!
I have tuned for concerts, professionals, colleges, schools, churches, and private clients, amongst them many professional pianists.
Amongst my piano tuning clients are
Simon’s Rock College (Great Barrington, MA
Berkshire School (Sheffield, MA)

Berkshire Country Day School
