to private customers and institutions.

I grew up in Heroldstatt, a small village in southern Germany. At the
age of 13 I became the village's church organist. I pursued professional
music education and became a junior high school teacher in 1994. When
I graduated I did not only have a degree in my pocket but also my first
tuning hammer and a basic idea of piano tuning.
After I had moved to Chicago (and got married) I apprenticed with the
late Steven Wilson, Skokie, IL. Steve's swift tuning skills were only
surpassed by his unparalleled humor. He taught me in-home piano tuning
Since November 2004, I have worked with James Fullmer, a renowned
rebuilder in Chicago.
In June 2010 I passed the exams for Registered Piano Technicians (RPT).
I am looking forward to meeting you and your piano. If you would like
to own a piano I will be glad to consult with you regarding your choices.
