students, and every one of them has been pleased with his service.  Without a doubt, Wayne is the very best!"

"Wayne is an excellent tuner and technician.  As a church musician, I find that I need instruments to be at their best so that they compliment the work that is done from week to week.  In my more than 30 years in the area I have had many of the top rated technicians service instruments at church; but I have found Wayne to be one of the top piano technicians in the area"  

Denise Gregory, Director of Music Ministries, Great Bridge United Methodist Church, Chesapeake, VA

 “I am writing this note to thank you for your professionalism and keen ear for tuning the pianos at Great Bridge UMC for many years.  I am grateful that you always make yourself available even for times that are not at our regular time period for tuning.  I have been in music ministry for over 30 years now and had many fine tuners but not sure anyone from the congregation has made the comment as was just done this Easter.  A musician that attends our church and listens closely to “all” we do with a sensitive ear said “I can’t believe how perfectly the organ and piano were in tune for the duet!”  I have much respect for this person as a musician and for your talents in tuning."  

Mary Ann Medlin, Director of The Music Staff, Chesapeake, VA
