Thank you for a job well done!
"A very professional and thorough job! Kentaro was courteous and knowledgeable. He also took the time to explain to our children how a piano works so they now understand the relationship between the speed that they play and the sound the piano makes. Thank you for a job well done!"

It is actually more fun to play now that the piano sounds so good.
"Kentaro did an amazing job of tuning our piano. It is actually more fun to play now that the piano sounds so good. Kentaro was punctual, friendly and professional. He is very knowledgeable about his craft and is passionate about his work. He provided a lot of good information about my piano and the process of tuning it. Kentaro also played a few short selections while he was testing the piano and it was evident that he has a very good ear for music. I would highly recommend Kentaro to tune any piano. The whole experience was very positive. Kentaro is truly a “piano whisperer”."

Kentaro, you made our piano sound the best it ever has.
"What a pleasure it was meeting you this week! You responded immediately to my e-mail and scheduled me for the next day!
I appreciated you being upfront about your fees. Plus, you guarantee your work for two months! I also agree with your approach that the piano player has to be comfortable with the tuning sound, not just what the tuner decides.
Kentaro, you made our piano sound the best it ever has. You treated it respectfully and didn’t criticize its age or condition (P.S. the cleaned sound board is beautiful!) You were thorough in your explanations, patient, and had a great website! Thank you so much – see you next year-"

Our piano sound beautiful now
"I am very pleased with the service we received from Kentaro. Our piano was very out of tune and he was able to get it back into tune and our piano sound beautiful now. He was courteous, kind and easy to schedule appointments. I will definitely call him in the future for tunings."

I really liked how you do strive for perfection with tuning and servicing.
"I was very satisfied with the work you did with my piano. I liked how you explained the process and also showed me what was wrong and you are going to fix it. Having the action regulated, and cleaned definitely made a difference on the sound, and it helped with practicing. At first, I was a bit worried about having the piano serviced, but the explaining really helped. I really liked how you do strive for perfection with tuning and servicing. As the pianist, I was very happy and will continue to have you service my piano."

Kentaro made it sound wonderful again!
"Kentaro tuned our piano, which is quite an old one, and made it sound wonderful again! He took the time needed to carefully tune each individual key. He also thoroughly cleaned the piano and gave us feedback on issues he noticed while tuning it. He is very professional and friendly, and I highly recommend him for piano tuning and maintenance."

"Kentaro did a fantastic job tuning our piano. He is extremely professional and spent a good deal of time perfecting the tune of our piano. Our piano is old and needed some repair work. Kentaro did an awesome job, with the repairs and the tuning.
He is considerate, kind, highly knowledgeable and very responsive to calls and emails.
His pricing is more than reasonable. The whole experience exceeded my expectations. I whole heartedly recommend him FIVE STARS!"

My Yamaha C7 has never sounded better.
"My Yamaha C7 has never sounded better. Kentaro did a magnificent job with tuning: pitch, evennes of touch, and softeneing the tone in the highest notes of treble cliff. Practicing has never been so satisfying. I highly recommend Kentaro!"

I am extremely satisfied with the results
"I’m very pleased to have found Mr. Nabeshima to tune my Yamaha baby grand piano. From the initial contact with him, he was professional, courteous, and prompt. When he arrived at the house, he took his shoes off, came in and explained exactly how he works and how he would price the session once he gave the piano a checkup. Then he set to work. Kentaro was thorough and exacting. I am extremely satisfied with the results and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone I know. I look forward to working again with Kentaro. Sincerely,"

My piano is alive like a human being!
"Kentaro serviced my piano today… The piano has been an important instrument for me professionally, personally and socially, since 1955. I grew up in the Motown heart of Detroit. Jazz, Gospel, Soul and R&B were the only places of freedom. My newly tuned piano reminds me of the best of these times, echoes of goodness and peaceful vibrations and spit of goodwill and love for all good people. Kentaro has a commitment to excellence, and my piano is alive like a human being!"
