Happy Clients

Stan worked very hard on the action of my Steinway grand piano and he did an excellent job.  It was 150% better after he finished working on it!  His tuning, voicing, regulation, restoration and rebuilding skills are of the highest calibre.  He LOVES pianos ... and loves to talk about them!  I would highly recommend Stan to anyone who needs to have work done on their piano.

Stan Kroeker has been the sole tuner of the Steinway performance piano at the Asper Jewish Community Campus for as long as I can remember.  His diligence in maintenance, suggestions regarding upkeep and general concerns as to the health of the instrument raise Stan above the level of a technician.  Stan cares enough to ensure that our piano is always at peak performance.

Stan, I want to let you know much I appreciate the work you have done on our 50 year old Yamaha grand piano.  I had no idea you could improve the touch and the sound in this way.  The sound is bright and clear, it is a delight to play.  I have been impressed by your level of craftsmanship and your attention to detail in the repair work and refinishing over this past year.  The piano is better than new.  I appreciate, also, your friendly and informative approach to the work, Stan.  It is great to know there is someone I can trust to take expert care of our piano should more work be required in the future.  Thanks again.

Stan is meticulous in his work and all things reading 'Pianos'.  He has worked intricately on our Steinway and Heintzman grand pianos with great care, providing fine results, and is always interested in 'fine tuning' all aspects of our instruments.  You can rely on Stan to provide quality workmanship for your pianos at all times.

Working with a tuner/technician like Stan Kroeker opens your mind to what is possible with pianos, not just other pianos, but mostly, YOUR piano.  Stan's expertise in this area is aided by the fact that he is also a pianist and musician.  He knows what he is looking for in a piano as a pianist and is eager to discover the best in your piano.

Stan has been my tuner and technician for nearly 25 years.  He regularly gives me advice on many aspects of caring for my Petrof grand piano.  I have always appreciated his attention to detail and flexibility in scheduling maintenance.  I highly recommend Stan to care for you piano.

Stan has lovingly cared for my upright Yamaha of 25 years, and now he cares also for my Samick grand.  It was Stan who kept his eye out for my 'Dream Grand' and after restoring this Samick, suggested it might be the one.  I am thrilled with the action and the warm tones he built into this piano.  I feel like he designed it for me!  Stan is an incredible piano technician/musician.  He has a wealth of knowledge and experience regarding the mechanics of pianos, and an equal balance of knowledge and passion for music itself.  On both a technical and a personal level, Stan is top-notch in his field.  I recommend him highly!
