Over the years we have had the opportunity to meet and service the piano needs of a wide array of talented folks. We thought you might like to know who some of those fine musicians might be and what they had to say about our services.
"Dan not only tunes my personal pianos but also the pianos at the University of Alaska Music Department. He does terrific work. All of our UAA Jazz Week Series artists such as Hal Galper, Jovino Santo and Barney McClure have always been appreciative of the work Dan has done for them before their concerts. I highly recommend Dan as a fine tuner of pianos.”
Karen Strid-Chadwick, Professor of Music
UAA Jazz Studies
"Dan McElrath is a very fine tuner and Steinway technician. He listens carefully to my sound and touch requests & then knows exactly how to accomplish them in the instrument. Anchorage is very lucky to have a technician of Dan’s level in our midst."
Juliana Osinchuk, Steinway Artist,
Artistic Director – Anchorage Festival of Music
"Dan has done a wonderful job taking care of all my pianos, and I especially appreciate his detailed care for my Estonia grand. I have recommended him to my students and friends, and always receive enthusiastic praise for the work he does."
Colleen Flint, Piano Instructor and proud owner of a Laul Estonia
"I can always count on Dan McElrath for his excellent tuning and concert preparation of my pianos. "
Dr. Timothy Smith, Professor of Piano; Chair, UAA Department of Music and Steinway Concert Piano Artist
"As the director of the Suzuki Association of Southcentral Alaska
Institute, I have to say we are extremely happy with the piano tuning
and maintenance Dan provides each year at our institute. He and his
crew are not only efficient at tuning all our pianos in time for the
start of classes, but he is also very exacting in his standards, and
he stands behind any work he does. I also use Dan to maintain and
tune my home studio piano - and I rely on him to maintain it in the
best condition possible for playing and recitals. I couldn't be
happier with his work!"
