Action Regulation - Johnston Piano

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.

For many years I was one of the first call piano technicians for the Baldwin Piano Company in the greater Boston area. I have also provided service for Steinway, Yamaha, Kawai and several other major manufacturers. Current institutional clients include The Governor’s Academy, Northern Essex Community College, Triton Schools, Pentucket Schools, Memorial Hall Library in Andover, Nevins Library in Methuen, the Rogers Center and many others. Concert experience includes tuning for Music at Eden’s Edge, Andover Chamber Music, Friends of the Andover Library and countless concerts for prominent local musicians.

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.
