"[I have] sung with many symphony orchestras – such as the New York Philharmonic, under the direction of Leonard Bernstein; the Cleveland Orchestra; the St.Louis Orchestra; and programs for the Rodgers and Hammerstein Foundation throughout the United States and Europe. And yes, I have been on Broadway and television. Having found Keith Hurrell through a friend's recommendation, I happily pass his workmanship on to anyone who needs his services – a superb piano tuner/technician and musician."
— Anita Darian; soprano, voice teacher and coach; Google Anita Darian.

"Keith Hurrell has been servicing my piano since 2006, and has never failed in bringing the mechanical and aural capabilities of my instrument to its utmost potential. His work ethic and professionalism are consistently unerring. These attributes have led me to recommend his services time and time again. Keith's keen musical sense is an indespensible asset to the professional pianist, student and hobbyist alike."
Dr. Melissa Lanfrit-Hait, D.M.A., Pianist and Teacher, Patchogue, NY; www.melissalanfrithait.com.

"I am a professional singer who attended Eastman School of Music, and regularly performs with the New York Philharmonic and visiting orchestras at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall. I am also an actor with the Onion News Network (ONN) – which established an internet presence after decades of circulation as a satirical newspaper. ONN was subsequently purchased by Comedy Central, and was launched as a tv series on the IFC cable tv network on January 2011. Keith has tended to our piano for many years, and we're very happy with his work. Not only does Keith do an excellent job of tuning our piano, but he's exceedingly professional and proactive. I heartily endorse him, and fell fortunate to have had him recommended to me.

"As a professional concert pianist and instructor, I have been gifted with knowing and working with Keith Hurrell as an advisor and also as my personal tuner. I was pleased that at one of my performances, Keith stayed during the entire concert and was able to quickly and ingeniously resolve an ongoing mishap with that evening's instrument. On various occasions, I have requested Keith as my tuner. And, fortunately for me and for my audience, he was willing to travel. And, I knew that once he finished, the instrument would once again be in tip-top shape. Working as a piano teacher, Keith is THE only tuner that my students utilize. I highly recommend him, due to his organized maintenance and experience in the tuning of all makes and models of pianos."

"As a professional classical pianist and college music professor, I am very selective in my choice of piano tuners for my 1923 Steinway piano. Since my former tuner retired, I have used several piano tuners, and Keith Hurrell was the one that stood out far above the rest. Keith is a consummate professional who is a rarity in the field of expert piano tuning. He not only is a member of the Piano Technicians Guild, but holds a degree from Hofstra University. In short, he has a developed ear for music, which helps attribute to his wonderful tuning techniques. After Keith tunes my 1923 Steinway, I notice I can go longer periods between tunings. He also tunes to concert pitch, which many tuners do not and require several tunings to reach A4=440. You and your piano are in 'good hands' with Mr. Hurrell. Let your piano'sing,' and give him a call."
Anne Tedesco, Concert Pianist, Professor of Music, St. John's University, NY.

"I have had the pleasure of having Keith Hurrell tune our pianos at St. Agnes Cathedral for a number of years. He does an excellent job every time, and is extremely reliable and courteous. I highly recommend him for piano tuning and technical work."
— Michael L. Bower, Director of Music, St. Agnes Cathedral Music Department, Rockville Centre, NY.

"Mr. Hurrell has been tuning our Steinway for concerts and services for many years. Always consistent and reliable, his work receives compliments from the various performers we have. He has made himself available to us even on short notice, and always tries to be as accommodating as possible. I highly recommend Mr. Hurrell's services."
— Cantor Galina Pali, Temple Israel of Lawrence, NY.

"I am a graduate of Queens College, with a degree in music education, and have been teaching piano for over 40 years. In that time, I have had several people tune my piano. None of them possessed the expertise, precision and dedication that Keith has. Keith has been tuning my piano since 2008. He is an excellent technician and I trust his judgment without question. When my piano needed extensive reconditioning, Keith referred me to the best piano rebuilders in the New York area. I have recommended his services to many of my students, friends and family; the feedback I receive from them mirrors my own. I recommend him highly."
— Pat Lichtman, M.A., Piano Teacher.

"Keith Hurrell has been my piano tuner since the late 1980s. As a vocal coach, I play my piano every day. My Yamaha baby grand is always in tune and continues to have that bright sound. I have referred friends and family to Keith, and everyone is very satisfied with the quality of his services."
—Carol Klar, Vocal Coach, Pianist and Performer, B.S. Hofstra University, Masters Class at Columbia University in Voice, Founder and Director Broadway Local Musical Revue+Touring Company.

"Keith Hurrell has been tuning my Steinway and Yamaha grand pianos since 2004. His work is always very satisfactory and I will continue to call him. I would reccommend his work to all students, teachers and professional musicians."
— Christina E. Sayenga, Piano Teacher over 30 years.

"Keith has serviced my Yamaha baby grand since I purchase the instrument. He has always produced a very musical sound from the piano, and has always given me excellent advice for its care and maintenance. I have recommended him many times to my students, and always with positive feedback from them. They have consistently commented on his politeness and professionalism."
— Laury Tatz Herzlin, B.A. Music Education; member of Actor's Equity Association; American Guild of Musical Artitsts; performed in original production of Sweeny Todd, directed by Hal Prince; also worked with Steven Sondheim; Vocal coach for over 25 years.

"Keith Hurrell has been my only piano tuner since 2009. I have found his tunings to be very accommodating for a professional violin/viola studio. I have a small baby grand with the usual acoustic problems, which have been difficult for other technicians to tune to my satisfaction. I have taught for the past 42 years, hold three advanced degrees in Music Performance and Education, and am very particular about how accurately my piano is tuned. I do a great deal of All-State and college audition tapes, and am confident that the piano accompaniment compliments my students performances."
— Roberta Kaufman-Stalzer, B.M.E., M.M. in Performance, M.M. in Composition.

"Since 2009, Keith Hurrell has been tuning my piano at least three times a year. I am more than satisfied with his tuning and his professional demeanor, and with no hesitation recommend him highly for his fine work."
—Robert A. Foster, B.S. in Music Education, M.A. 36 years teaching all levels of music education; finished career as Music Specialist in the Hempstead [New York] Public Schools ... present, I coach and accompany students for the All-State Adjudications and record with them for their college auditions/applications.

As a professional musician, I play and teach in various venues in the tri-state area. The importance of quality piano tuning is crucial to giving high quality performances. It is difficult to find a reliable piano tuner/technician who provides high quality work. Keith Hurrell has been taking care of the pianos at several of my performing venues such as Pine Hollow County Club, Piccolo's and Mill Pond Restaurant, Table Nine, and in my home and I can't recommend his work highly enough. I have recommended him to work in schools, homes and restaurants and everyone is very pleased with his work.
— Don Sands, Jazz Pianist and Educator

"I have employed Keith as my in-store and home piano tuner for many years. Also, I have recommended his services to all of my customers. His work, skills and techniques are always highly appreciated and complimented, and as such, I wouldn't consider recommending anyone else."
— Mike Barnett, Owner, Michael's Music, Freeport, NY; Professional Jazz and Blues Guitarist.

"Dear Keith,
This brief letter is long overdue. You have been my piano tuner for several years, and I want you to know that I would trust the sound maintenance of my Yamaha Grand to no one else. I admire your skill, promptness and business ethnic. You are the consummate professional. Many of my fellow musicians have commented on the beautiful tone of my piano. I look forward to our continued professional relationship, and encourage you to use me as a reference whenever you need one."
— Charles Henry, LLC; Professional Pianist and DJ Entertainment.
