Since my childhood I have been fascinated by this mysterious sound machine called the Grand Piano.
I observed and admired an old man who came to our house to tune our old Baby-Grand for several years, wondering what kind of gift or talent one has to have to bring this monster device to such fantastic perfection each year.
I was about 12 when this wonderful old man passed away, and I said to my father that since I had learned so much from him, was it possible for me to try piano tuning by myself.
It took me a few months to make a primitive piano tuning hammer and a few other tools. After that, I was ready and I started my new adventure in life…
My first tuning took me a week of trial and error but each successive tuning was shorter and more successful.
At that time I was studying violin and piano, first in an Elementary and then a High School of Music in Warsaw, Poland. After graduation from Teacher’s College, the Academy of Music opened up new perspectives to me. One of them was a “proper” Piano Tuning Course with a history of piano making and revealing so many piano secrets I didn't know before.
I became a Qualified Piano Tuner and Technician. Previous “amateur” experience helped me a lot, and being a violinist with perfect relative pitch made the tuning process quite easy and fast.
For more than 50 years I have tuned all kinds of pianos by ear with the help of modern electronic technology when necessary.
Since I am still occupied with different music activities, my appointments for tuning have to be made 2-3 weeks in advance.
