I attended The London College of Furniture in London and studied for 4 years to qualify as a Piano Technician with  BTec. HND and City and Guilds qualifications.

On leaving college I gained a large part of the Surrey Schools Contract and spent 2 years servicing a huge number and variety of pianos  all over that large county.

When the Schools Contract came to an end I decided to build up my own piano tuning and repair round in and around the Colchester area.

In 1990 I passed the entrance exam of Piano Tuners' Association (the PTA) our professional Association. I have regularly attended PTA Training and Conventions to keep up with latest techniques and developments in the trade. From 2009 I served for 6 years on the Executive Council, two of those as Vice President of the PTA from 2013-2015.

I am pleased to say that I have an excellent reputation and have had well over 600 customers including Piano and Music Teachers, Schools and Professionals. I have also completely reconditioned and restored many of my customers own instruments over the last 36 years.

After a few years tuning, I became so disappointed by the dreadful cheap pianos my customers were buying on auction sites and the like, that I started to sell good quality pianos including reconditioned quality Yamahas. These have proved incredibly popular. In the last few years I found a brilliant quality 'silent' system that I now add to select Yamahas and also by request for customers. This amazing system is not Yamahas own silent system but is the best I have found and allows you to have a real piano that converts to a fabulous digital one at the flickk of a switch. This way you can use headphones when you want to, but with the same piano, keyboard and mechanism as you always use.


In 2021 I decided to concentrate on the piano sales side of the business and passed on my piano tuning round to my old college friends Barry and Roberta Caradine. who I highly recommend if you are wanting your piano tuned. Click here for piano tuning and repair only:

My other interests include  composing, tennis and playing the piano of course!
