Reviews for John Caterino Piano Service

I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation for John Caterino. He has been employed as a piano tuner for Bonita Unified School District for several years.

Personally, I can vouch for his excellent and careful attention to detail in his tuning work. He shows up promptly and reports any special needs and repairs that are necessary. Several instruments that he tunes are quite old and in poor condition; however, John is willing to put in the necessary time and energy into tuning these pianos as well as the new ones.

I have dealt with other tuners in the past who have done a poor job of accurately tuning the keyboards and were careless with my classroom area. John is professional and considerate of each music teacher's needs and requests.

Mr. Caterino does a superb job, not only tuning my piano, but doing repairs as well. I would not hesitate to recommend him highly.

John Caterino Piano Service has been tuning and repairing our pianos for numerous years. The Covina Center for the Performing Arts highly recommends him to anyone needing this service.

For the past eighteen years, as Director of Music at Sacred Heart Catholic Church (Covina, CA) and Music Teacher at Sacred Heart School, I have called upon John Caterino to tune and maintain the pianos located in the church and school.  John has always demonstrated excellent professional service in his work with these instruments, and he has consistently maintained first rate communication with me and with the administrative staff.  I look forward to calling upon John to continue in this capacity for many years to come!

John has been tuning my baby grand piano for several years.  I am very pleased with the results. He reminds me when the tuning is due and always arrives promptly.  Above all, the piano sounds wonderful.

John was recommended to us by the Music Director at Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal Church in Montebello. He has been tuning our Yamaha grand piano for the last five years. We are very pleased with his work.
