The sound James Watts got out of the piano by working on it is truly extraordinary. The intervals are not just true, they are so true that they are beautiful. His tuning makes the piano inspiring to play better, and it enables compositional imagination by rendering clearly even difficult to hear intervals.


Philadelphia Area Composer
I absolutely love Judith Palmer's piano services, and heartily recommend her. She has always been completely professional, and her work is superb. It seems to me that she has a certain "sympatico" with every piano she services. I have had to call her for last minute "emergency" repairs and tweaks literally hours before a major concert, and she is always cheery and thrilled to be of help.

In all my years of having Judith service and tune my piano and the pianos of my students I have had nothing but fantastic results. She is thorough, diligent, precise, consistent, and most importantly has a genuine love for every instrument she works on. She is also a warm, friendly and exceedingly delightful person and I have never had a second thought about recommending her to anyone who needs quality piano work done on their piano.
