Action Regulation - Johnston PianoPiano Tuner / Technician

For over thirty-six years, I have worked as a full-time, piano tuner and technician. In addition to private homes my clients include many piano teachers, recording studios, schools, libraries, churches, assisted living facilities and other institutions. My piano tuning and repair services are available in the Merrimack Valley area, Massachusetts’ North Shore, and Southeastern New Hampshire.

My experience includes many years as one of the primary piano technicians in the greater Boston area for the Baldwin Piano Company. I have also provided service for Steinway, Yamaha, Kawai and other leading piano manufacturers.

Current institutional clients include the Governor’s Academy, Northern Essex Community College, Memorial Hall Library in Andover, the Nevins Library in Methuen and the Rogers Center in North Andover. I have tuned for the Boston Pops, Andover Chamber Music, Music at Eden’s Edge and dozens of other concert artists and venues.

Although a lot of people find me on the internet, most new piano tuning customers are referred to me by someone they know and trust. My personal goal as a piano tuner is to provide the highest quality of service possible to each piano, whether it is a valuable grand in a concert setting, a modest spinet in the family room, or your grandmother’s old upright.

Tuning is the most requested piano service. However, the piano is a complex instrument and can need hundreds of different repairs, action regulation, voicing, and sometimes humidity control.
