Michael is the best piano tuner in Brooklyn. Ears and fingers and hands down! So many piano tuners in the past have rushed through their job not thinking of the endless hours I would spend at the piano dealing with their work. Michael has always done incredibly sensitive and thorough work on my instrument. I believe this stems from the fact that he is also a very sensitive and thoughtful musician. You do not find this combination of skills very often. I highly recommend Little Ear Piano Repair. - Steven L.

Mike was great, very professional, offered repair suggestions on how to make the piano sound better in the long term - without being pushy, I appreciated the great work! - Blanche B.

Mike arrived right on time. Took off his shoes without any prompting (impressive to me) and got to work on the patient who hasn't seen a piano tech in close to 20 years. BTW, it's a Kawai baby grand. He then spent almost 2 and half hours working on it and got it sounding fabulous. He indicated that a number of pins need to be replaced and suggested that I get another tuning in about 6 months and he would replace the pins at that time. Mike is a pro at what he does and is very engaging. I will certainly have Mike back to keep my piano in good shape and would encourage anyone who isn't sure to ask for Mike. - Steve F.

The piano sounds beautiful. So happy for Mike's expertise, and I really appreciated his friendly and clear explanations. -Naftali B.

Mike did great work! He showed up on time and tackled the job with knowledge and expertise that was impressive. Fixed strings on the fly. Gave me an honest assessment of what needed to be done, and a timetable for doing it...Could not ask for better! - Matt B.

Booked Mike for the next day (a Sunday afternoon), he was prompt, so professional and friendly, and tuned my piano that had been sitting there unplayable for six months!!! It ended up needing a pitch raise, a few repairs, in addition to tuning, but Mike was really forthright about what I needed to get it in basic condition, and honest that it would probably need a few more tunings this year to "nurse it back to health." But the price for that original session was reasonable and I will definitely call him again in a few months when it needs another look. Thanks Mike!! -  Liz M.

Mike did a fantastic job of taking care of my old (very old, hard-worn) piano. I had a snapped string and my soundboard is cracked, so it's not an easy job, but Mike was very clear about explaining everything and tuning it up as good as it can be. He was even able to splice the string, which saved me money and from having to wait for a replacement delivery. His work is a great value for a really great price. -Kate P.

Mike arrived on time - in fact, a few minutes early which I appreciated. It was raining and he took off his shoes in the hallway without me asking! Very conscientious and respectful of being in someone's home. He went straight to work, made my old piano sound beautiful and was friendly and pleasant the whole time. -Julia B.

Thumbs up.  Mike was punctual and did a thorough and excellent job.  Highly recommended. -Ed W.

I recently had an emergency tuning for my Baldwin by Mike.  He devoted a lot of time and personal attention to my aging piano's needs and was able to bring it back to recording quality so that I might finish an album I was two songs shy of wrapping. Thanks so much Mike! I'll see you again soon. -Louis D.

My experience with Mike was great -- he did a good job and was very thorough.  He was also super friendly. I appreciated that he clearly understood music and was not just tuning to a machine.  He took the time to make sure the piano sounded good in all registers through a variety of chords.  I have had bad tunings before and know the difference. -Dan K.

Mike was great. Very professional and knowledgeable, and he took the time to explain the couple of issues that came up. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. -Molly R.

I had just about given up on my very old but lovely baby grand piano.  It had not held its tuning for a very long time due to a cracked pin board and I felt its days were over. Mike was the technician that came to the rescue and I can't offer high enough praise for the quality of his work.  He suggested and I agreed that the solution would be to replace some of the tuning pins with larger ones that would then be tighter and hold the tuning. It's never sounded better!  -David G.

Very professional and extremely helpful. We had a difficult piano to work with and Mike was very hard working and able to make the piano sound great. He was very informative and helped us understand all the work he was doing and why. What a great experience. -Hannah H.
