Among his accomplishments is the construction of several reproductions of early keyboard instruments including a harpsichord, clavichord, and fortepiano. Dr. Cory can be heard in concert as a regular guest artist with the baroque group La Follia. (Check web site for dates and times at www.lafollia.org.)

    It would be difficult not to say enough nice things about Bill Cory. He is a first-rate technician - extremely skilled, patient, professional, and his prices are reasonable. He arrives when he says he's going to and he gets the job done on time. Whenever I go out to play a concert at other schools, I realize again how lucky we are at Southwest Texas is to have Bill take care of our pianos. He is indispensable! Oh, and he also happens to be a great guy! - Dr. Timothy Woolsey , Professor of Piano at Southwest Texas State University

    Dr. Cory has been my piano technician for the pianos at my home for 20 years. During that time he has consistently kept my Steinways sounding beautiful. He is a logical problem solver who has discovered solutions for difficult and confusing action problems on these pianos. - Dr. Betty Mallard, Professor of Piano at The University of Texas at Austin

    Bill Cory has that special gift -- a combination of outstanding technical skills, an excellent ear, and a real concept of a beautiful piano sound -- that always makes my instrument inspiring to practice on.
    - Dr. Anton Nel, International Concert Pianist.
