Piano Tuning

I tuned pianos on the side for about 10 years in Birmingham, AL beginning around 2002 while doing various other jobs in music, audio, and theatre before shifting my focus solely to piano tuning and repair.  My clients are happy with my work and I strive to constantly improve my skills and the services I offer.

I am a Registered Piano Technician (RPT). This means I have passed a series of rigorous examinations on the maintenance, repair, and tuning of pianos.

I know that in order to provide the best service to my clients I need to learn from those with more experience and keep up with current information in the field of piano technology. Because of this I joined the Piano Technicians Guild.  I attend monthly meetings and continued education sessions, and I attend the PTG's Annual Convention and Technical Institute where I get the opportunity to learn from nationally recognized piano technicians including instructors from Yamaha, Kawai, and Grotrian.

  • I will treat your piano with care.

  • I will communicate with you honestly about your piano's needs.

  • I will listen carefully to your concerns and wishes for your piano's maintenance.


Music Education and Experience

I have a Master of Music degree in music composition from Birmingham-Southern College. I have worked both as a musician and in music technology for almost 20 years. I used to record the Alabama Symphony Orchestra and edit/master those recordings for broadcast on 90.3 WBHM Birmingham Public Radio. I have arranged and written original music for organizations including Birmingham Children's TheatreSongs for Sight, and Red Mountain Theatre Company (RMTC). I was the sound designer and soundboard operator for the majority of RMTC's productions from 2007 to 2013, and there I was also Music Director for Youth Programs and Production Manager for a few years.  For a couple of years I was the sound designer for many productions at Virginia Samford Theatre. I have been the music director and/or performed (keyboard/piano) for productions at Terrific New TheatreBirmingham Children's TheatreRed Mountain Theatre CompanyBirmingham-Southern College, and TheDane (Dane Peterson Theatre Series at Birmingham Festival Theatre). 


  • Brandon has been tuning my used piano for the past four years. He is consistently punctual and a capable and exacting tuner. Earlier this year, he did some repair and maintenance work including damper replacement. The service was reasonably-priced and effective. This piano sounds better than it ever has!

  • Mr. Robertson tuned my piano recently and I was extremely pleased with his promptness, professionalism, and ability in getting my old piano to a much better place. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a piano tuner who is not only highly knowledgeable but very reasonable cost wise.
    — Stuart G. - Trussville, AL
  • Just wanted to thank you for the great service we received on our piano this week. It had not been tuned in many years and we were concerned that it could not be tuned, but a great job was done and we are SO pleased with the result! Thank you so much.
    — James and Mary M. - Hoover, AL
  • I know nothing about pianos, tuning, or music in general but based on the noise and the time taken to correct the sound it went well. Brandon was timely, professional, kind, knowledgeable, and most importantly I trust the work he did based on how he presents himself and how wonderful his previous reviews are. We will definitely be using him again in the future.

Other

I have a strong interest in computers and technology. People say of me that I can recognize when I don't know how to do something and I will do whatever it takes to learn how to do it. I'm the kind of person who takes things apart to figure out how they work--and I take the time to put them back together right. I'm always interested in learning new things.
