Before moving into the field of piano tuning and repair, I began playing piano for enjoyment and relied on a piano technician to maintain my Yamaha grand. When he recommended having the piano ‘regulated’, I said yes, trusting in his professional judgment. What a world of difference that made in the feel, or touch, of the piano. I didn’t know what he did but my enjoyment of playing greatly increased.
Having attended regulation classes in Montana, Arizona, Kansas, Germany and multiple conventions, I understand what regulation is (develop consistency of touch, power and repetition within the piano action) and, having felt that difference as a piano player first, I know how to create that “WOW’ sensation for you.
I truly enjoy regulating a piano action and that goes for upright pianos as well. I have invested hundreds of hours in my education and thousands of dollars in equipment to competently regulate your piano.
Upright piano regulation is done in the home whereas, after taking careful measurements, your grand action is brought to my shop for precision regulation.
Those measurements are transferred to my custom made Grandwork™ Regulation Station from TPR Tools in Massachusetts. I had the owner and developer, Chris Brown, spend a week with me providing personalized instruction on its use.
