I am enjoying your tuning of my Pramberger grand piano! Thank you for coming out and getting me back in tune, and fixing my F# damper. I appreciate your promptness in returning calls and willingness to send me regular reminders for tuning. I look forward to seeing you in six months!

Matthew arrived right on schedule. He took the time needed to complete the job in a professional manner. Keeping our piano in top condition is easier having access to Todd Piano Works. Thanks again for your great work.

We could only be more pleased if Mr. Todd had brought a new piano with him! He was professional, punctual and most importantly, obviously gifted. Matthew had quite a chore at our house, and it came out beautifully! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Todd Piano Works to anyone, and have to several! Thanks, Mr. Todd.
