In my semi-retirement I inherited a baby grand piano and began playing again, and then I became interested in how the piano works and how one tunes.

I've been a laboratory technician in the Navy, a chef working in restaurants in NYC and Cape Cod,  a landscape architect working on the design of large residential developments along the east coast, and a watercolor artist who's won numerous awards, so it only seemed natural to become a jack of yet another trade. I began training as a piano technician in 2018 and completed the training program at the Piano Technician Academy that same year.   In 2018 I attended the excellent "37 Steps" workshop at PTG headquarters.

I'm happy to say that since starting Smokeshire Piano Service all of my customers are very pleased with my work.
