Musical Instruments: It's What I Do

I’ve been a professional Consultant since 2000. I believe in maintaining a positive mindset, creating partnerships with a purpose, and always striving for significant outcomes. When you work with me, you should expect a collaboration with transparency and consistency. Want to learn more? Contact me today for an initial consultation.



I specialize in musical instrument appraising and research, but I have a broad range of aptitudes and experience; if you have an unusual and/or odd task that’s music related and you have no idea who you should contact to help you with it, there’s a very good chance I’m the perfect person for you to call.

I am an International Society of Appraisers certified appraiser, specializing in musical instruments of all kinds. I am qualified to appraise musical instruments of all kinds, from the common such as guitars and pianos, to the more unusual, such as harpsichords, bagpipes, ukuleles, pipas, church bells, didgeridoos, and many others. If it makes a sound, there's a good chance I've appraised one. I also am qualified to appraise musical ephemera, such as posters, artwork, costumes, etc. I also specialize in instruments and objects with celebrity associations (which in many cases can greatly add to the value.) I can prepare appraisals for insurance valuations, tax purposes, or any other reason. My client list includes major museums from around the world.


Do you have a project or idea that you’d love to bring to life? Since founding my business, I’ve provided my clients with a wide range of consulting services such as this one. To find out more, get in touch.
