Excellent Piano Tuner--Darrell did a wonderful job of tuning our very out-of-tune piano.  I first met Darrell when I enlisted his help in tuning the piano at my daughter's school for a chorus concert.  He volunteered his time with no problem.  Therefore, when we acquired a used piano this past December, I knew he would be great at getting it back in working order!  Darrell is very friendly, extremely professional and we will be using his services again. ~ Chelsey (Kennesaw)

Darrell was very professional and kind, prompt and flexible with appointment times.  He even sped up his tuning just enough to allow us to get to an evening event on time.  So helpful and honest in answering all our questions, too.  If you need a piano tuned, repaired, or examined, Darrell is the right choice.

Darrell showed up to our home exactly at the time he said he would.  He explained what he was going to do and how long it would take and got straight to work.  Our very old piano has never sounded so beautiful until now.  My daughter enjoys playing it more and we all enjoy hearing all of her songs in tune.  Darrell was extremely professional, on time, efficient and kept me informed every step of the way. I will definitely be hiring him again for our next tuning.  Thanks! ~ Amy (Kennesaw)

Darrell's love of music began while singing in church as a small child and his enjoyment of the p​iano began when he heard his mother play the family piano in their home while growing up.  He took piano lessons as a child and continued music studies while in high school and college (band, choruses).  He has always been a good hands-on craftsman, as well, which makes piano tuning and repair work an enjoyable 'fit'.  He has been performing piano services in the Greater Atlanta area since 2009 and is certified by the Piano Technician Academy (PTA) of Tempe, Arizona.   Along with his trained ear, Darrell uses state-of-the-art tuning technology to properly calibrate your piano to its optimum tonal settings for the most consistent and stable tunings possible.  He enjoys the opportunity to service pianos in homes, schools, churches, music centers, and dance studios throughout our community.
