Dear Mark

I would like to compliment you on your truly excellent piano tuning and technical repair program that I was so fortunate to recently attend. The program helped to shed light onto so many things for me. For the first time I understand what makes a truly superb tuning and appreciate why this requires considerable time and perseverance to really master. Great tuning is a remarkable process but once understood and appreciated anything less becomes unacceptable.

Likewise, I finally have an understanding of the piano action which had previously been only a labyrinth of confusion for me. The patience of your expert instruction was so important to me and helped me in so many ways to achieve a deeper understanding and knowledge of the piano and its workings.

I would unhesitatingly recommend your program for any aspiring student of the piano. In fact, I now consider it mandatory for anyone interested in the instrument whether it be from the stand point of a performer or a technician.

In addition to helpful explanations, Mark also provides excellent hands on experience and commentary in both the tuning and repair courses. A great course for anyone wishing to start a new career, or simply learn about piano tuning and repair.
