Being a piano tuner has always felt like being something between a dentist and a car mechanic who happens to make house calls like an old-timey doctor. Its a profession that requires a lot of training and experience, but it's also very much blue-collar type job that requires working with your hands and muscles. A piano is basically made if 88 nearly indentical machines that one has to understand how it functions. But The tuning itself feels like molding clay into a perfect sphere with your eyes closed. Since a piano is usually the heaviest object in the home, bringing it in the
shop for a tune-up is not practical. So the service provider makes house calls. With a black bag of tools noone else really knows how to use, I arrived at your door ready to repair and restore the instrument to play and sound it's best. Theres no medicine involved or preseciptions, but there might be some surgery. After a short while I'm on my way out and back to the office or another patient.
