"Mark was called in at the last minute to tune the spectacular Schimmel 9’ concert grand at Central Presbyterian Church in Cambridge on Saturday March 25th, 2017 for the Cambridge Symphony Orchestra concert that evening. The piano had been played on for the dress rehearsal and was grossly out of tune for a concert that included Brahms’s 2nd Piano Concerto! Mark dropped every thing to get the piano concert-ready with only 4 hours’ notice! Extremely amazing!! Thank you Apollo Piano!!"
Joy Schuster, Cambridge ON
Thank-you Mark for your expert service! My piano was in dire need of tuning due to the especially cold winter, and you went the extra mile and scheduled an emergency appointment. The "Dampp-Chaser System" you recommended, is working like a dream and helps keep my piano at the Beckett School and now at home too, so stable."

"Hi Mark. Just finished playing my U7 after today's full regulation, hammer filing, voicing, and tuning. Wow. It sounds absolutely stunning! As I remember it when my folks bought it for my sister and me about 1976. Thank you for looking after it for me, and for the fantastic service."
