At Christ Church Cathedral, our ministry of music is one of the busiest of any city church. Our boy and girl choirs rehearse several times weekly, and our performances are continual, and well attended. The efficiency and effectiveness of our rehearsals are critical to our work, and none of this is possible without rehearsal, studio, and performance pianos being kept in premium condition. For this, we entrust the work to Colin Mack, for superior service, sensitivity, and musicality.
Colin Mack has been tuning the Ottawa Choral Society’s rehearsal piano since 2012. We are always very happy with his work. He is reliable, responsive, and does an excellent job keeping our Yamaha upright, and by extension, our whole choir, sounding great!
As a piano teacher with many advanced students, I count on Colin Mack to keep my grand piano and two uprights in top condition. Whereas many other tuners leave an allotted time to tune a piano, Colin always goes the extra mile and works until the pianos are a delight to play. He is a true professional who knows his craft inside out. Besides giving a first-rate tuning, he keeps me informed of future needs for the pianos. He is punctual about appointment time, respectful of my home, and always courteous. I recommend him to all my students, who have always been pleased with the service they received. It is rare to find such an accomplished pianist and composer with his tuning skills and I believe that is why he holds himself to an exceptional level of care for our pianos.
As a performing pianist I find it most important to keep my Yamaha grand in top condition. Colin Mack is my tuner of choice and has been for 18 years. I recommend his expertise without hesitation.

I have been delighted with Colin’s work on my piano. It is beautifully in tune. I highly recommend him for his work.
Colin teaches music and tunes piano. He has the advantage to understand piano from both worlds. He guided us through the piano purchase process and helped us to find a perfect grand piano. We trust Colin to keep our piano in top shape. In terms of tuning, Colin is meticulous. He would spend hours to make sure tuning is done right. I recommend him to anyone who is looking for an experienced professional to take care of their piano.
When I purchased my piano, it came with a free tuning provided by the store’s technician. While the technician did tune my piano, it only sounded good. I contacted Colin to tune my piano and the result was a piano that was not only in tune but sounds like a musical instrument. In over 30 years, Colin has not let me down. He provides expert service as well as expert advice.

Mr. Mack came and tuned my upright Young Chang in September 2013 and did a wonderful job. He was efficient but thorough, offered a good rate, and left my piano sounding clear and pitch perfect. The action feels great, too. I would definitely recommend Mr. Mack and I intend to employ his services for my future tunings.
