To Whom It May Concern:
This is a letter of reference for Ira Langlois, who is developing a piano demonstration for interested churches.
Our church purchased two Kawai pianos from Ira some years ago. Not only are they excellent pianos, but he has kept them beautifully tuned and maintained for well over ten years. It continues to be a joy to play them for all sorts of occasions, in addition to church services.
Ira keeps a good schedule for tuning and maintenance and is faithful to that schedule. He gives ample notice when repairs are needed, mindful of church budget constraints. If an unusual problem should come up, he is quick to help.
If I may add a personal note, Ira has been the tuner/maintainer of my Steinway parlor grand for over twenty years. I purchased a Kawai console from him as a second teaching instrument. My students have been exposed to fine instruments, professionally maintained.
Your work on our Mason & Hamlin has been very rewarding to our church and our community. I have gotten many compliments from congregants to visitors on how beautiful our piano sounds now. I don’t know what I would have done without your help with our grand and I will always turn to you whenever we have a need with our piano. Thanks and God Bless. You’re Awesome!
The work that Ira did on my 85 year old piano was phenomenal! The sound of the piano is improved 1,000 fold and the work on the keyboard has made it much easier for me to play and achieve the sound I want. When I played the piano for my first lesson after the extensive work Ira did, my piano teacher asked me if I had a new piano! The piano has NEVER sounded like it does now in all the years I’ve owned it and it has been regularly tuned. Ira was the first person to tell us it needed some restoration work and it was worth every penny. His expertise and knowledge of the piano’s construction has produced an excellent result. I have recommended him to everyone I know that has a piano.
