“Joel Haasenritter and Sound Piano Services, Inc. have served Oglethorpe University for several years as the only authorized piano technician for our historic Mason & Hamlin concert grand. It is a valuable instrument used in our concert series which includes guest artists and ensembles, as well as student performing groups. Since the late 1980's, we have had a standing agreement to present the gold medal winner of the Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition every three years; their artists are inevitably pleased to play this significant instrument and comment on its preparation for their concerts. Those compliments go directly to Joel Haasenritter and his colleagues at Sound Piano.
They have provided expert tuning, maintenance, repair and advice in a timely and highly reliable fashion for both our concert instrument and, more recently, all pianos on campus. As a result, I encouraged the music staff at my church to engage Sound Piano's services for our worship instruments as well as the instrument used critically for our chamber music series. They, too, have been delighted and placed repeated trust in Mr. Haasenritter's judgment. He provides exceptional expertise, a broad range of resources, excellent value, and a genuine love for what he does. I cannot recommend anyone more highly.”
