Susan and I have been very happy with Rob's work. Through many tunings, as well as a major overhaul of the action on our old Heintzman grand, he has always gone the extra mile to make it sound fabulous. Many thanks to him!

Rob has been regularly tuning my Steinway Grand since its purchase in 2000. He also has worked very efficiently and with great care on some necessary repairs. He is personable, knowledgeable and always leaves my piano sounding superb! I recommend his services to all my students.

I have been a full time Guitar teacher in Trent Hills since 2004 and Rob has always been my “Go To” guy to recommend to people for assistance with musical purchases, service and especially tuning of their pianos! I have had dozens of people come back and tell me how much they appreciated Rob’s professionalism, promptness and honest answers when it came to doing work for them!

Rob has been my piano tuner for over 15 years, and he has done an excellent job every, single time. I have complete confidence in him, not just for tuning, but caring for the whole instrument. When I had an opportunity to buy a grand piano, Rob checked it over thoroughly beforehand. After purchase, he and George Stimpson reconditioned it, correcting the action in particular. I am delighted with the result!
