Phil, Tony’s father, started tuning and rebuilding pianos in 1976. In the early 80’s he opened a retail piano store. He was instrumental in teaching Tony the critical points of being a good technician and business owner. Phil moved out of pianos after 9/11/2001 when he opened a franchise of ‘The Cleaning Authority’, for house cleaning. He built a very successful franchise and merged another franchise office with his. He started with zero customers and zero employees and ended 12 years later with 25 employees and 400 customers. Once it was time, he sold the business and “finally” retired…or so he thought. After ‘retirement’ he sought to fill his time and remembered his roots of piano tuning. He dug out his tools and started tuning for friends and family. He soon after decided to start tuning professionally for Innovative Pianoworks and has been since. He enjoys tuning but also enjoys getting to know our customers. If there is anything we can say about Phil is that he is a people person and great technician and will go the extra mile to make you happy.
