DAMPERS MYSTERY SOLVED IN CHAPEL PIANO .. (2)
at an East Northport Gospel congregation. "You saved my Tokay baby grand. After three tuners told me they were unable to fix our damper problems, which we faced for years. You were able to fix it in ten minutes. You are the best I know in the trade." — Pastor Roberts

RESPECTED BY COLLEAGUES .. (4)
When a technician had finished his normal tuning routine, he saw a severe problem with all pedal functions: "My piano tuner gave me your name and number because I need some custom-made parts to fix my Sohmer baby grand. He said, 'You can fix anything.' " — Miguel Perez, Baldwin Piano Instructor and Performer

Even an Érard .. (5)
The historically famous French piano, unrebuildable by traditional means due to its novel patent design, was not fixed, because technicians avoided it, since they had no formal training as a context with which to address its unique problems: "You exceeded my expectations with the way in which your rebuilt this piano. I am happy I took a chance and decided to trust your word and your confidence." — Sheila Gessler, Dancer and Musician

MORE THAN A PIANO TECHNICIAN .. (6)
An 1895 baby piano was in a box — all in pieces — and no one wanted to touch it, not even Schoenhut, the manufacturer. "You revived a family heirloom. For my family legacy, it was priceless. My grandmother learned to play piano on this and I am offering it as a gift to my niece. It has been in our family for five generations." — Ms. Kogut, Nassau County Family Matriarch
