"What a terrific asset to our artistic community! A technician equal to any task at hand, with a true appreciation for the unique characteristics of the instruments under his care. We have a trio of challenges - a new Bosendorfer grand, an old Baldwin grand, and a Steinway upright.
All are behaving extremely well after a year with STL Pianoworks. Tunings are superb, and the technical work is SUBLIME. For this you would expect to pay prices well above the market, but prices are very reasonable, and the service and responsiveness let you know that exceptional work is the rule, not the lucky exception. Trust this tech and don't look back. Make the smart investment."
"Joe was very professional, friendly and courteous. His tuning and technician skills are phenomenal and I'm speaking as a professional musician."
" I cannot recommend Joe enough! He is super knowledgeable and made out seriously out-of-tune piano sound amazing!!!!! As someone who has played musical instruments all her life, I have high standards, and Joe met them. We will definitely have him back for all subsequent tunings and repairs. "
" Such a delight to work with Joe and his crew. They seem to have a real passion for pianos. Can't imagine ever trusting any other group with my precious baby grand. STL Pianoworks is the real deal. I've used lots of piano companies.... this one tops them all and I'll only be working with them from now on. "
" I cannot speak highly enough of Joe! Everything was set up through email and online, which was perfect for me. He is great at what he does (as his other reviews attest to), but even more importantly he´s a kind, conversational person. If someone is going to be in my home for hours (for the neglected piano service tuning) its so important to be comfortable with them. Definitely recommending him to everyone I know with a piano!"
" Joe arrived at the scheduled time and worked quickly and diligently. He spent extra time after the tuning explaining the details of his work and giving me tips on how to continue to maintain the piano. Only charged me for the actual time spent working on the piano. And best of all, our 50+ year old piano sounds like an entirely different piano. Amazing how much difference a quality tuning can make. I highly recommend Joe at St Louis Pianoworks! "
" We were told our family piano that 3 generations of women have learned to play on would never be able to be tuned. Joe came today and had it tuned in 2 hours for the first time in 30 years. My mother wept as she watched her granddaughter play this afternoon. You can't put a price on that. Thank you, Joe! You are our piano tuner for as long as you will have us. "
