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 attend regular 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 over 600 regular customers including Piano and Music Teachers, Schools and Professionals. I have also completely reconditioned and restored many instruments over the last 25 years.
Some years ago, I started to sell good quality pianos including reconditioned quality Yamahas.
Disappointed by the dreadful cheap pianos customers were buying on auction sites and the like I decided to offer monthly rental options on all my pianos at a variety of rates. This has proved a popular option for those customers who need to work to a budget or who want to 'try before they buy'.
I am confident that with many years of experience since qualifying from college I can help you with all your piano needs.
My other interests include composing and playing the piano of course!
