Mr. Goldberg, Thank you for the recent service performed. The experience, as in the past, was what service should aspire to be in all industries. I really appreciate the ease of setting up the appointments and most of all the reminders. Hopefully, we will continue to benefit from the stellar service. The piano sounds great and we appreciate the exit number you played. Best, Jean-Bernard Poulard. As always, it was great to see you and to have my piano singing in full, sweet voice once again.

    Before finding you, I had rarely felt that my piano was tuned and voiced quite right. Since your very first visit, every tuning has been excellent.

    "Prompt and courteous service, as always. Excellent tuning! I had a problem with a sticky key which Rich assessed and fixed perfectly."

    "I met Rich for the 1st time last week when he came to tune my piano. I was pleasantly surprised by how friendly, courteous, and pleasant he was. He was very knowledgeable and patient. I am very happy with my new piano tuner and look forward to working with Rich for years to come."

    For any prospective OR existing customer in the Long Island New York Metro Market who doesn't have a Dampp-Chaser Piano Life Saver System installed, I have a very special offer from Rich Goldberg Piano Tuning (a/k/a "RGPT").

    Have a new installation of a Dampp-Chaser Piano Life Saver System and receive a free tuning on the same day. This is a savings of at least $100.00 or more, depending on your locale.

    The installation of a new system will give your piano years of stability for many more years in the heat necessary winter and in the hot, humid times of the year. Your piano will have less swelling of wood, less moisture problems that lead to mold on wool and felt parts, rust on the strings and metal parts, and expensive repair problems.

    The purpose of a Dampp-Chaser system is to give the piano stability so damage caused by environmental conditions is minimized. When the body of the piano is stable, (doesn’t expand and contract), parts don’t get ruined, no mold develops (important for allergy sufferers), and above all, tunings stay closer to correct pitch. IMPORTANT - You still need to service the piano on a consistent schedule!

    If you value your piano and want to enjoy using it for years to come, contact me for assistance and information. This offer is good until further notice.

    Harmoniously yours,

    Rich Goldberg, Owner

    The Steinway Fibonacci Grand Piano

    "When it came time to celebrate Steinway’s 600,000th piano, the company turned to furniture/interior designer Frank Pollaro (pollaro.com) who also designed the limited edition 'Rhapsody in Blue' for Steinway (circa 1996). His thoughts as he was asked for the challenge: 'Designing Steinway & Sons' 600,000th piano was an honor and a challenge. To me, knowing that this piano would become part of history meant that it had to be more than just a beautiful design, but also needed to visually convey a deeper message. As I considered the number 600,000, the Fibonacci spiral came to mind. The way in which it continues to grow but stay true to its form is very much like Steinway & Sons over these many years. Combining the universal languages of music and mathematics suddenly made perfect sense.'"

    Prepping a concert grand to tuneThe lost art of piano tuning

    3rd generation piano tuner Seth Winter writes a fascinating account of piano tuning as a career.

    “So what do you do?”
    Everyone gets that question, but the reaction to “I tune pianos” is nearly unanimous: “Oh no kidding! A piano tuner!” People are gobsmacked this is still a job. But they’re always curious about what I do, if I do it by ear, how I got into the field, etc. Many friends have suggested I write about the lost art of piano tuning. And there’s plenty to write about. In fact, there’s an untold 200 years of piano service, plus a glimpse into how the business looks now. I’ll do my best to share what I know about this unique — although household — profession.
