I have been building and servicing harpsichords and other early keyboard instruments since 1974. In recent years I have investigated the early history of the piano and its inventor, Bartolomeo Cristofori, and I have made copies of Cristofori's 1726 piano and of other early pianos made in emulation of his design. Research for these projects has resulted in several articles, and is on-going.
