Piano Tuners of Texas

For many years in the piano industry we have been witness to a steady decline in quality at the level of manufacturer, dealer, and technician.  Many of the “old ways” are being lost, to be replaced with inferior methods that are based on expediency and cost-effectiveness.   Our mission in creating Piano Tuners of Texas was to create a service without compromise, a service with integrity, a service we could be proud of.

By keeping alive the traditional methods, and perpetuating them in master and apprentice relationships we hope to be a small part of enhancing the quality of service within our industry, both today and into the future.

We believe that if you listen carefully, you’ll hear the difference…
