Peter D., a very good friend and a marketing guru tells me that I am not saying the right things on this website, but I'm a technician, not a salesperson, so I don't expect to get all the marketing stuff right! ;-)

He thinks I should tell you about the NZ Universities, Orchestras, Music Societies, City and District Councils, Radio Stations and notable pianists that number amongst my clients. I, of course am far too modest to do that.

I hope the passion I have for my work and pianos comes across. What do you think? Send me an email.     This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

Yes, I know I have spelt piano wrongly above. That spelling is a common typo that people make and has been included to aid search engines to find us when searchers make a simple typing mistake.
