About Us
In June 2015 I relocated my piano servicing buisiness to Strafford, Mo. from Waynesville, Mo. where I had lived and serviced pianos for 15 years.

I have over 25 years experience in Piano Tuning and repair. I began my formal piano training in 1993 and earned a diploma from the
American School of Piano Tuning in March 1995.  I also earned a diploma, with highest honors, from the Randy Potter School of Piano Technology, Inc. in February 2012. I am also a Piano Life Saver (Dampp-Chaser) certified installer
(http://www.pianolifesaver.com/english/installer.php).
I am currently an associate member of the Piano Technician's Guild, Southwest Missouri Chapter, and regularly attend their monthly meetings.  I also try to keep up-to-date with current piano technology information, practices, and methods by attending special training such as: the PTG National Conventions, C.F. Theodore Steinway Technical Academy, PTG chapter technicals, and by reading PTG journals, online articles, and participating in piano forums, and the like.  I am also currently studying to complete the final of 3 rigorous exams required to be a Registered Piano Technician (RPT) with the Piano Technician's Guild. I passed the written exam during the 2011 National Convention in Kansas City, and passed the technical exam March 15, 2014. 

I have a BS in Church Music from
Olivet Nazarene University, Kankakee, IL, May 1993. My musical emphasis was trumpet.

I am very active in my local church. I attended the
Waynesville Church of the Nazarene from 2001 to 2015 which my father started in 1977.  I have served many years as a church board member. I have also served as Sunday School Superintendent, Church Board Secretary, and served several years on staff  as a part-time Lay Minister of Music. I enjoyed playing bass guitar, keyboard, and trumpet in our worship services.  I also served as the webmaster for the church's website. Now that I have moved to Strafford, Mo. I am actively involved in the ministries of Strafford Church of the Nazarene (SCN).

I am a Missouri Certified K-6 grade teacher, although I'm not currently teaching so I can focus on my piano business.  I taught 5th-6th grade Science at Laquey Middle School from 2003-2008, and also worked as a Special Education Paraprofessional at Laquey Elementary School from 2002-2003, and at Thayer Elementary School at Fort Leonard Wood, Mo. from 2009-2010.

One of the joys of servicing pianos is the opportunity to meet new people and make many new friends.  I look forward to meeting you and hope I can be of service to you in the near future.
