What others say about Brian Wilson’s piano tuning & repairs
“Thank you Brian. Your re-stringing and general renovation of my Steinway has reconnected me to my instrument in a way that I sometimes no longer thought was possible. Since you brought my Steinway back, my playing has already reached new levels of depth and joy. I’m lifting my game, aiming for ever better performance, because I now have an instrument that SO deserves that.
Your love and care for people’s ability to play beautiful music, as well as your professionalism and utter dedication to the instrument and your customers, shines through everything you do, Brian. Again, I can’t thank you enough.”Professor Sidney Dekker, Brisbane, Australia
“Brian has tuned the pianos in my studio for very many years. I originally had a Lipmann which served me well for 30 years. Even as it showed signs of having 40 sets of fingers playing it every week, nothing was too much trouble for Brian, to tediously attend to the middle octave which was worked tediously by many fingers each week. Three years ago, I purchased a Kawai GE30 grand piano so now it’s completely ‘run in’ and sounding more beautiful than it did as new. My students love to play on it and nothing stops me from allowing my toddlers to my mature adults enjoy the beautiful tone as they gain mastery of their repertoire.
Last year, I updated my Lipmann to a Kawai K6 which has a very different tone from my grand piano of course; however, as a professional instrument, it offers my students the best opportunities to develop beautiful sound as the tone of this piano continues to mature, thanks to the skilful tuning by Brian.
Brian will spend 4 or 5 hours, regularly, tuning my pianos to a level of perfection. It’s never too much trouble for him to take the time to answer lucidly my questions about the mechanisms of my pianos. He even allowed me to photograph the grand panels so that I could show my students who were delighted. Brian has had experience across the globe and speak of his experiences working on some of the finest pianos in the world for highly professional and demanding performers. I highly recommend Brian to tune the pianos of all the families in my studio and also to seek advice from him if they are buying a piano. After all, he is the piano technician with all the experience.”Denise McKee, Suzuki Piano Studio, Cleveland
“I have known Brian Wilson for 25 years. Over these years, I have called on Brian to look after my own pianos for business and personal and also those of my students. His passion and professionalism is clearly evident with all aspects of his business. I can always rely on the fact that Brian will be honest with valuations, tuning and repairs and deliver at the highest standard. I would highly recommend him to you.”Joanne Byrnes, Piano Educator – Gold Coast
