James Patmore Delivers Professionalism

From the moment I approached James in 2017 for advice on purchasing a grand piano – the outcome of which made me the proud owner of a Yamaha G2 – to the last time he tuned it only three months ago, he has impressed me with the thoroughness of his knowledge regarding the structure, properties, characteristics, workings, even the history of pianos. This comprehensive understanding of the instrument, together with pragmatic information and astute, honest advice as to what may ideally suit personal circumstances, ensures clients will make the best choice when purchasing their piano.

To ensure my students, from beginners to diploma candidates, accomplish the high standards set by AMEB examination requirements, as well as concert performances and eisteddfod criteria, I have depended on James to maintain both my grand and upright pianos in perfect working order all year round. I have come to deeply appreciate his expertise , noting with admiration the attention he gives to the piano’s complex mechanisms, arduously correcting and adjusting particular elements to ensure the very best delivery and control of pitch and tonal nuance. This pride in workmanship, together with his knowledge, experience and skill, his very approachable manner and commitment to satisfy clients has placed James on a professional platform seldom reached by other specialists in their fields.
