Downie's Piano Service


Hello Robert,

Thank you so much for coming to tune and fix our piano today. Not only did you make our piano sound wonderful, but my children and I appreciated you talking to us about the history of the piano and explaining how it works too. It was a great music lesson for all of us!

Thanks for letting the kids watch you work, and for your patience with their questions. We greatly appreciate your quality work and friendly conversation. I will gladly recommend your services to anyone looking for someone to work on their piano.

I learned a lot about pianos today. Thank you. In the future, when I am ready to buy, you will be tuning it.

Hello Robert,

It was a pleasure meeting and talking with you at Mother Joseph Manor. It's a small world as my wife and you knew the same people from college. Thanks for taking time to converse.

Hello Robert,

It was such a delight to meet you. Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did tuning my piano. The piano sounds wonderful. Taking the time to explain what you were doing, why, and how the piano works was fascinating and much appreciated. Also, the the stories and anecdotal musings of your experiences within the music world were fabulous.

Thank you again for such professionalism and enthusiasm.

Hello Robert,

Thank you for coming to my home and tuning my daughter’s piano. You always come in a very timely manner and do a wonderful job. I appreciate visiting with you. You help to take care of a piano that means quite a lot to my daughter as it was a gift from her grandmother.

I just wanted to send a note saying that I am so glad we have such an excellent service! Bob is always in a pleasant mood, he is on time, and performs his task very well! I also appreciate the fact that he travels to my little town. I always learn something from him when he visits.

Thanks, Bob, for doing such a great job!

Hello Robert,

Thanks for the 2 fabulous experiences with you tuning my Yamaha Professional I purchased through Engel Music! I am even more impressed that you have tuned Lorie Line's pianos for her.

Having you play for me while I listened to my new piano enabled me to hear the amazing quality of my purchase. My grandkids were inspired by your horn playing too during your second visit. You are a fine man and I look forward to your return this fall!

Hello Robert,

I recently had our church's grand piano tuned by you and am so happy with the results!

It sounds better than it has since we purchased it and the problems I have had several other tuners look at and try to fix have been resolved perfectly!

Thank you so much for stopping on your trip through!

Hello Robert,

I just want to thank you for tuning my piano yesterday and I appreciated the fact that you explained things to me as you went along. I appreciated visiting with you and knowing about you and your family, and being able to share about mine.

I have never been disappointed in all the years that you have tuned my piano and will definitely call you again when I need work done on my piano.

My piano sounds wonderful and I am practicing again! Thanks again for coming all the way to Watertown - I will make an effort to keep it tuned more timely in the future!

I will call you again for another tuning!

Mr. Downie tuned our piano on Thursday June 8th. He did a fabulous job and we especially enjoyed the little lesson he gave to my 11 year old. He is obviously a teacher at heart! Thank you!

Thank you for keeping us in mind when you work in our area, I appreciated your phone call reminding us our piano could use a tuning. Your work is outstanding!

Thanks again for your superior service!

Dear Robert,

I want to thank you for scheduling me on such short notice. I appreciate the professional, yet down to earth, manner you display each time you tune my piano. What I enjoy the most, though, is the education that you provide about the instrument itself.

Thank you for making the trip to North Dakota to service my piano.


Mrs. S. Werre

Bob Downie is a polite, trained professional who promptly comes to your location to tune your instrument. He not only tunes it thoroughly, he also informs you about the needs of the environment in the home to keep your piano at its best working condition.

He will teach you certain things such as: humidity levels, moving, placement, even to the general upkeep and cleaning recommendations for the piano. He is also a lifelong professional musician who has much uplifting conversation and knowledge to share during his visit to tune up your piano.

He did a great job on my new upright Baldwin, it sounds beautiful now. Give him a call! He is very thorough and knowledgeable and a great conversationalist.


Musician Traci Linn Samelson


Thanks so much for tuning my piano recently. I have always been completely satisfied with your work and this time was no exception. You are truly extraordinary at what you do. Thanks for the wonderful service.


Pat Scott,

Drummond, MT

Not only is my piano back in tune and in pitch, but I learned many things about the keys, the strings, the hammers, etc. that I did not before. I found Bob to be extremely knowledgeable and proficient in his craft - as well as playing the instrument well. I will certainly have him back on a regular schedule.
