 "As a working classical pianist with a busy schedule my piano has suffered much wear and tear, but I couldn't simply stop using it for my private lessons, plus the work done to my Hamburg Steinway 'B' grand had to be first rate. Gary Bauchman quickly assessed what work it needed, did a fine job tuning it and replaced some damaged parts in the piano action. I am very happy to recommend him because of the results on my piano.          Sincerely, 

Margrit Zimmermann"
