"Keith Stephens is the most highly skilled, conscientious, knowledgeable, & courteous piano tuner/instrument technician my family has ever known. For over 20 years, Keith has been the only tuner we have used, & our piano sounds absolutely as wonderful now as it did when it was brand new. Keith has corrected every small problem & prevented other problems from occurring in his usual brilliant, yet modest, way. Keith also serviced my dear father’s Mason-Hamlin piano, which my father played well into his nineties, & was extremely particular with whom he trusted to tune it. He put his complete confidence in Keith & was thoroughly delighted with the quality of Keith’s tuning. He also admired Keith’s knowledge of classical piano composers & so enjoyed their conversations about Chopin, Liszt, Bach, etc. When our daughter located what the previous owners had said was “an old piano,” Keith came to tune it, discovering it was an antique, pump-style organ, instead of a piano, & taught all of us how pump organs worked. Until Keith’s inspection & work on it, no sound had come from it—but it is playable now. With every tuning/service call on all three of our family’s instruments through the years, each time Keith finished, our instruments’ timbre & balance seem to improve with his uncommon talent for tuning & genuine love of every piano he touches. We highly recommend Keith Stephens Piano Services without reservation!"
"Good job. Tuned piano expertly & inspected carefully. Piano had some problems from a recent move & Keith took care of those. Very pleased."
"I had an old Wurlitzer piano given to me that had a broken pedal and had not been tuned or used for a very long time. I contacted Mr. Stephens and he promptly returned my call and set up a date for the repair and tuning. Tuning this old piano was a challenge but Keith was up to it and it sounded really good when he finished. Since then he has returned to tune it once more and it continues to sound really good and we hope that with use and continued tuning it will get better. If you are looking for a knowledgeable, courteous and prompt piano technician, Keith Stephens is your person."
"We have been blessed with Keith's professional and courteous tuning of our baby grand for a number of years. He provides a valuable post tuning evaluation of our piano. Keith is flexible with our schedule and prompt with his appointment. He will exceed your expectations."
"Keith Stephens is the finest piano tuner we have ever found. Whatever the style, age, or brand of your piano, Keith is adept at tuning & servicing it. For over twenty years, Keith has tuned our & my late father's pianos, as well as educated my family on the workings of an antique pump organ that the original owners had thought was "an old piano." Keith discovered it was an old pump organ instead, & even knew how to make it produce sound! We never could have found a more dedicated, skilled, conscientious, & experienced piano/musical instrument tuner than Keith Stephens. He not only adjusts our piano to make both the brightest & deepest tones, but has spotted & corrected potential problems before they could occur. We wouldn't want to trust our piano to anyone other than Keith Stephens!"
"Keith has been tuning our upright Yamaha for 10 years. He is professional, kind, and expert at his profession. Our piano is located in a sunroom with great temperature variations. Many years ago Keith suggested adding a dehumidifier to the piano. The results have been great. The piano now stays in tune and only needs to be tuned once a year. I highly recommend Keith to anyone looking for personalized, expert service at a reasonable cost."
"... It was a pleasure meeting you. Now when I tickle the 88 keys (including that last klunker on the right end, ha ha), I'll think of you. Thanks for all your help."
"Excellent work and kind workers. Took a very old piano that hadn't been serviced in years and it now sounds delightful. Very reasonably priced in comparison to other piano services."
