"Greetings! It was an awesome opportunity to have met Michelle Lamm and her piano tuning endeavors. She technically ‘bond’ with the piano, using the tuning fork, with a powerful skill.
I have worked with many tuners! As a music major from the age of 7 - with the Pairs Conservatory of Music, Claudette Sorel, (student of Rudolf Serkin), Eugene Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra (Corus) - to many a new. With 3 degrees in Music Education and a PhD, watching Michelle work was a stunning experience. She got those tiny fingers right into the heart of the keyboard, and only Michelle and my 6’3 Baldwin are the dominant factors in the room.
In short, she is great - and I would never anyone else touch my keyboard - unless I moved from the area.
Michelle, you're the best best! It’s an honor to have watched you work, to know you and your family, and for sure, we’ll be seeing you in about six months for that second tuning. GREAT WORK! If you really want a tuned piano - phone Michelle!”

"As a pianist who has played for 50 years (and taught for 8), I cannot say enough wonderful things about Michelle Lamm. Michelle is THE BEST piano technician I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. She tunes both my pianos, her method of aural tuning producing dramatically superior musicality compared to any of my previous tuning experiences.
When I met Michelle a few years ago, my grand needed extensive rebuilding, which she facilitated by partnering with one of her professional contacts (piano restorer Vincent Jaso). A complete restringing, refurbishing, and refinishing, followed by a series of expert tunings, made it sound - and look - absolutely magnificent. Moreover, her tuning of my upright has transformed a rather flat sound quality into pure melodic beauty. Playing my pianos now is more fulfilling to me than ever before.
In order to optimize long term piano preservation, Michelle has also provided me with exceptional quality humidity controllers and a string cover at very reasonable costs.
So if you want the most professional, full-service, and musically rewarding piano tuning, you could do no better than Michelle Lamm. Like me, you will not believe how much difference a truly gifted technician can make!"

“Michelle, I want to thank you for your prompt response to my call to come out and tune our piano. You set up our appointment whiting a very acceptable amount of time, less than a week, and you were very punctual, showing up exactly when you were scheduled. I has looked you up on the Internet and had reviews your Facebook page, after some reviews of your credentials, we knew you were very well qualified and the best person to tune our piano. Our piano had not been tuned for many years, but when you finished the job, our piano sounds better than every. We will definitely plan to call you again in the near future, and we were lucky to find someone so competent and efficient to come by and handle our piano tuning. I will gladly recommend you to anyone who has a need to tune their piano. Thanks again.”

James S. St. Augustine, Yamaha upright
"I have my piano, a Yamaha upright, tuned regularly. I decided to try Michelle because of her aural tuning method. The difference in outcome between the aural tuning and electronic device tuning was quite noticeable and pleasing. In addition, Michelle treated the piano with obvious care and respect. I will certainly use Michelle’s Melody in the future, and will recommend Michelle to family and friends.”

"I am very pleased with Michelle's piano tuning. She is very good with piano and the price she charges is reasonable. I recommend her to anyone."
Betty H. Ponte Vedra Beach, Janssen
"Thank you so much for giving my old piano a new life. I was very impressed with your knowledge and skills regarding piano tuning, especially since you are blind. My own "old heart strings" feel tuned up too. It was a treat having you and your assistant. You and your mother are very special people. I look forward to telling others about you!"
