About Colin

   I began my piano technician career in 1987 at Perkin’s School of Piano Tuning & Technology. The school was located in Elyria Ohio, about an hour west of Cleveland.

   Upon graduation, I returned to Alberta where I was offered a position with a piano shop in St. Albert. While employed there I began building my own client base in and around my community which was 100 km North West of St Albert.

Trained at The Steinway and Sons Manufactory
Long Island City NY
