I love my job servicing pianos
and can make your piano sound and play better.
Carl has been a piano technician in Los Angeles with over 45 years tuning and technical experience. I studied aural
tuning with David Safir and learned repair, regulation and voicing skills in David's shop at Pianos Wholesale. I
tuned aurally only for a decade but have been integrating both aural and electronic tuning since taking an ear opening class
from Steve Fairchild, RPT. Eons ago I studied psychology and math, receiving my Bachelor's Degree from U.C. Berkeley.
In 2016 I completed Yamaha Piano's week long Performance Piano Service Seminar. Since its initial release I have
been a member of the CyberTuner (CyberTuner.com) Development Team, creating, optimizing and expanding the software's capabilities. I am now CyberTuner's
"Imagineer", responsible for dreaming up groundbreaking new features. I have tuned for countless concerts
and recording sessions and am currently the piano technician at the Village Recording Studio (villagestudios.com) in West Los Angeles and at the Broad Stage (thebroadstage.org) in Santa Monica. The California State PTG awarded me their highest honor in 2006, the "Sid Stone Award"
and I was additionally honored in July, 2012 with the Piano Technicians Guild's "Member of Note Award".
I was officially credited (allmusic.com) as the piano technician for Elton John's last two albums, "Wonderful Crazy Night" and "The Diving Board".
I am a Member of the NARAS, Grammy "Producers and Engineers Wing".
