“Dear Alex, I would like to tell you that you did an excellent job of tuning that grand piano at the Methven Heritage Centre, on which I played my recital there this past Saturday night. I felt the instrument to be a sensitive one and I felt I could do what I wanted with it. It’s nice that a small town like Methven has a piano of this type and condition, as that isn’t something you can say of many smaller places. Thank you again for doing such an excellent job preparing this piano for me! You showed yourself through this to me to be a very fine tuner. With best wishes.”

Internationally renowned pianist and virtuoso

“I have just played on the Yamaha G2 grand piano at the Church of the Latter Day Saints in Christchurch. I was very impressed by the lovely clear tone of the piano, it really sings. This piano sounds much better than other Yamaha grand pianos I have played. The tuning was reliable over the whole range of the piano.”

“In 2011, Doris, an 1898 German iron frame, was lovingly tuned and restored to her former glory. 4 years later Alex took great care to once again iron out the wrinkles and now she sings beautifully. I am very happy with the way he worked and the quality of the restoration.”


“Alex is an excellent skilled piano tuner who has the skill and ability to recognize those subtle differences that result in a first class tuning. We have enjoyed the beautiful sound from our well used piano at the Christchurch Institute.”
