About this pro

1. Performing

I'm able to play any song of any style upon request when I play at a venue. Customers who dine there, really appreciate the nice ambience that the music I play produces. They are also welcome to sing along if they so desire. I also offer them the opportunity to play a fun game of Name That Tune.

2. Teaching

I enjoy working with students of any age and can teach them any style of music. I mix up their lessons by explaining concepts to them during their lesson, asking them to play the song which I assigned for homework, asking them to practice naming the notes with the flash cards, music theory games, and more! I organize music recitals for them twice a year. It's a very exciting experience for them, their parents, and their relatives.

3. Piano Tuning

I have perfect pitch and am able to tune any piano by ear. I adjust the strings very slowly and carefully. When the process is complete, I demonstrate how much better the piano sounds by playing popular songs that everybody knows. It is a fun process that leads to a game of Name That Tune.

How did you get started in this business?

With the help of family and friends, I created a logo for my first set up of business cards. They also helped design my first website. As time went by, I learned more ways to advertise on my own to pick up more music students, piano tuning jobs, and playing gigs. I now have a much nicer website, and I'm using modern-day tools such as Google, Yelp, and HomeGuide itself, to help my music business stand out better and pick up more clients. 


What types of customers have you worked with?

All kinds. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Each venue that schedules me to play at each week/month gives me the opportunity to play whatever song I want and any style of music. I truly enjoy this because it gives me the freedom to fully express my talent.


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

If you hire me I will make sure that the job is done correctly and that a fair price is given.


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

1. How often should pianos be tuned?

2. Are you interested in signing up for piano lessons for yourself/your kids?

3. Suppose you decide to host an event at your place in the near future after getting your piano tuned. Would you consider hiring a pianist to play for it?
