Registered Piano Technician (RPT)
Al is a Registered Piano Technician (RPT) with the Piano Technician’s Guild. What does this mean? The field of piano technology is an unregulated trade. Therefore, the Piano Technicians Guild has set its own standards of quality for piano technicians. Certification is based on passing three examinations. A written exam tests basic knowledge of piano design, tuning theory, repair techniques and various other topics relevant to piano technology. Two separate practical, hands-on exams test tuning and technical skills. (For additional information on RPT classification, please visit the guild website at


Tuning is an art practiced by skilled professionals and under no circumstances should anyone other than an experienced professional be allowed to tune your piano.
