Welcome to my website.
I hope over the following pages you will get an accurate insight into the services I can offer and should you decide to contact me, I will do my utmost to advise and help you with your individual needs and requirements.
I am an independent Steinway & Sons trained Piano Tuner/Technician specialising in the servicing, rebuilding, tuning and toning of fine German grand pianos, and with 30 years experience, you can be assured of the highest levels of craftsmanship.
My love of music began as a boy when I got my first guitar, piano came soon after when I was 13 years old…my first piano had notes which wouldn’t work and that’s when I got the bug…and here I am 40 years later still regularly preparing Steinway pianos for some of the finest musicians in the world.
I live in Lee, South London, and have a workshop in Greenwich, South-East London, I am available for work throughout the UK and internationally.
Please contact me if you have a Steinway grand piano for sale, I always have customers waiting for good Steinway pianos to restore and service. Currently I particularly need Steinway A, O, B and D grands.
My work as a piano technician includes all aspects of piano servicing, from tuning and check-over, to servicing on site, which can be between one and five days, and full grand piano restoration at the workshop, which is around four to six weeks work.
I am resident technician at London’s Henry Wood Hall where I look after the Steinway concert grand pianos which are used by top pianists and all the major orchestras on a daily basis for recording and rehearsals. The newest Steinway D here No 501630 circa 1986 was brought up to top condition in May’09 with a new Steinway Hamburg action. This piano is proving to be very popular and it's not unusual for artists to select this piano in preferance to a brand new Steinway. It has been used on many recordings for EMI, Sony, Hyperion and others. It is also available for occasional hire by special arrangement with Henry Wood Hall. I also do regular work at London’s Southbank centre on their fleet of seven Steinway concert grands.
My own particular passion is for Steinway grand pianos, the quality of tone and responsive touch and feel all make for me the ultimate piano. I try to keep a small stock of very carefully selected Steinway grand pianos for sale. Please see the Steinway Piano Sales page.
Re-polishing can also be arranged.
