"I first observed and appreciated Bill Huesman’s gifts as a piano technician during the mid-eighties when I was on the faculty of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston-Salem. Over the years, there have been numerous occasions to engage his efforts whenever I returned to UNCSA to teach or perform. He is extraordinarily good at what he does. The comprehensive nature of his skills and the aesthetic intelligence that guides them are certainly rare enough in combination. But, there is also a deeply felt sense of responsibility to do a job as best as it can be done. His willingness to think flexibly and make every effort to address the pianist’s needs and wishes is a driving force in his work and the hallmark of a great craftsman."
Robert McDonald, Steinway Artist
Piano Faculty, The Julliard School and The Curtis Institute
"Bill Huesman’s professionalism and quality of work make him the go –to technician for all of our piano tuning and repair work at Home Moravian."
Glenn Seibert, Choral Director
Home Moravian Church
"As usual, thank you for the beautiful piano."
"The Hamburg Steinway D is extraordinary."
"For nearly 30 years, Bill Huesman has masterfully cared for my piano and the pianos of my students. Whether for a tuning or other concerns, all to whom I recommend Bill are highly complementary. With his experience and skill he knows how to bring out the best in each piano."
Karen Eliason, Piano Teacher
"I’ve had time to practice and think about the piano and your tuning. Can I just tell you that you did an excellent job? And I really appreciate you listening to my issues and explaining the things you did to me and fixing all the things you did. You bothered to listen and validate the issues with me (so I didn’t think I was crazy) and then fixed them or tried to fix them. It really means a lot to me."
"Since returning from Winston-Salem, I haven’t stopped talking and praising your beautiful hall and exquisite piano."
"Bill Huesman had been providing outstanding service to our church pianos for over 20 years. His expertise, knowledge and service are unsurpassed."
David Williamson, Minster of Worship and Art
First Baptist Church, Winston-Salem, NC
"We have a 1903 Steinway Model O which we purchased in 1974, and we finally decided to have it fully restored in 2010….In all the steps his wisdom, experience and concern for the integrity of the piano never flagged. And in the work he did to the action and keyboard he demonstrated that he not only is a splendid technician but he is also an artist. He understands both the mechanics of the piano and how to caress its sound to accommodate the player, and just as important, he understands the music of the piano and the musicians who play it."
Donald Armitage, Organist and Choral Director
Founder and Director Emeritus, Piedmont Chamber Singers
"Bill Huesman has been our piano technician since we opened our doors in 2005. Our relationship goes back to the 80’s when we were affiliated with UNCSA. He has become one of our greatest assets and one of our closest friends….We have full trust that every recording our Steinway graces is beautifully tuned and voiced. The action is like butter and any pianist who tracks on this instrument is amazed by the ease in which the keys play…We could not recommend Bill Huesman more highly."
