From Felton, CA
SinceNovember, 2021

With forty years of experience in the field, I have mastered the art of tuning and restoring pianos. I have had the privilege of concert tuning and preparing pianos for some of the greatest pianists of all time, including Michael Ponti, Oscar Peterson, Dave Brubeck, and countless others. I have also tuned pianos for numerous professional recordings. In addition, I have worked for twenty five years as a piano and keyboard technician at UCSC's Music Department. I have received training from renowned institutions and experts such as Steinway, Yamaha, and various PTG state and national conventions. My passion for what I do hasn't diminished even after forty years, as I continue to learn and perfect my skills. Feel free to inquire about my special offer, the One Day Wonder.

Russell provided excellent service. Our piano had not been played or tuned for over 20 years, and with two kids growing up, it had sustained some rough treatment. Russell managed to fix the piano keys and tune it, thus bringing it back to working order, just in time for my son to start taking lessons. I would definitely recommend him. Many thanks, Russell!

Russell arrived promptly and displayed a high level of professionalism while tuning my piano. I am thoroughly impressed by the quality of his work as my piano sounds significantly improved after several years. My daughter is overjoyed with the results and is grateful for Russell's adjustment of the previously out-of-tune instrument. I sincerely appreciate his exceptional work.

At my home, Mr. Brown adeptly tuned my Yamaha upright piano. His kindness and deep understanding of the instrument were quite apparent. The tuning process was handled with great efficiency. Since his visit, my piano's harmonies have significantly improved. I plan on soliciting his services for future tunings.

Russel, an extraordinary technician, took his time, around an hour and a half, carefully tuning my baby grand piano. He listened to every detail with great attention and once he finished, my beloved instrument sounded absolutely amazing. On top of his exceptional work, his humor and gentlemanly demeanor make working with him an absolute joy.
