Concert Tuning and Regulating

            Because the requirements artists place on performance instruments are more critical, concert pianos have service needs beyond those of the average piano. Our technicians have trained with major piano manufacturers at seminars and conventions. We are ready to provide the exacting service that concert artists demand.

            A few of the institutions and performers that we have had the privilege to service include: Thelonius Monk Institute of Jazz, The Brubeck Institute, Grammy Nominated Artist David Lanz, The Oregon Symphony, Jack Clark (Carnegie Hall Performer), the late Anthony Burger (Carnegie Hall, pianist for the Bill Gaither Gospel Trio. His albumn "Let Freedom Ring" became the in-flight piano music on Delta Airlines after the 911 tragedy.), Lamp Music Group, Mountaintop Records, Gospel Heritage Records, Gospel Music Legend Evie, Bobby Watson concerts (Jazz Saxophonist). Others we have serviced include nationally recognized local jazz artists Michael Allen Harrison and Dave Frishberg. We have tuned the piano that they used in the film “Mr. Holland’s Opus” and were called for a concert tuning for Jon Schmidt, pianist for
The Piano Guys.

          AAA Piano Service currently does tuning, repairing and maintenance on pianos owned by the Portland and Beaverton Public School Districts, providing quality service for our children’s music education.

David served as the piano technician for the Bibb County Board of Education servicing the public schools (in Macon Georgia), for Bill Hardin Music Company in both Macon and Warner Robbins, Georgia, and for Southern Keyboards (Atlanta, Georgia) covering all of central and south Georgia.

We are an independent contractor and do warrantee work and tunings for Portland Piano Company (formerly Sherman Clay/Moe’s Pianos, Portland’s Steinway dealer), Classic Pianos, who carry the Yamaha, Mason Hamlin and Petrof brands and Michelle’s Pianos, the dealer for some fine European pianos such as Bosendorfer.


The most famous piano David has ever worked with was “The Bosendorfer Emperor”, a one-of-a kind piano made for the Emperor of Japan in 1826 with solid gold statues and gold inlay.
