Piano Services Ltd.


I hope over the following pages you will get a full insight into the services I can offer.

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 40years experience you can be assured of the highest levels of craftsmanship. Based in south 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 who want good Steinway pianos.

My work as Piano Technician

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. Re-polishing can also be arranged.

Since leaving Steinway & son I worked for twelve years at Londons Southbank centre backing up the contract holder on their fleet of Steinway concert grands. This envolved all aspects of piano maintenace including tuning and voicing checks onstage prior to performances. I am also resident technician at London’s Henry Wood Hall where I look after the Steinway concert grand pianos which are used by visiting concert artists and all the major orchestras on a daily basis for recordings and rehearsals. The newest Steinway D here No 501630 circa 1986 has been used on many recordings for Deutsche Grammophon, EMI, Sony, Hyperion, Decca and others. I’m also service contract holder at Trinity Laban Conservatoire.

I try to keep a small stock of very carefully selected Steinway grand pianos for sale. Please see the Steinway Piano Sales page.
