Registered piano technician Paul Marshall considers piano maintenance his calling and puts his advanced degree in piano technology to work during every tune-up. During a standard piano tuning, Marshall coaxes dulcet tones out of wobbly wires using time-tested tuning techniques that include politely asking them to work and bribing the damper pedal with jujubes. Most pianos need to be tuned once or twice a year, although experts suggest more frequent tunings for pianos stored in humid locations, such as the Mariana Trench.

San Francisco Piano Shop

As a graduate of the North Bennet Street School and a registered piano technician with the Piano Technicians Guild, Paul Marshall has repaired, regulated, and retuned pianos of all makes and sizes. During a stint with Kawai America and as an independent technician, he honed his knowledge of musical acoustics and aural-tuning procedures, mastering the use of intricate hand tools and woodworking machinery along the way. Now, his house-call services include regular tunings, part adjustments, and reconditioning for worn-out instruments.

Arrived timely and worked on an old piano that he had never worked on before. He was very happy to do it and I was pleased with the outcome.
