Duane McGuire, RPT
I love pianos: as a musician, as a technician and as a craftsman. The joy of my profession is to bring out the best in every piano I encounter. If your piano is in need of tuning or other servicing, please give me a call at 801-896-4123, or schedule online.
Commitment: As member of the Piano Technicians Guild (PTG), I am committed to the highest standards of quality in piano service, and will provide the best possible service for your instrument. I am certified as a Registered Piano Technician (RPT). The RPT designation is held by the fewer than 2600 people in the world, who have completed a series of exhaustive examinations covering all aspects of piano technology.
Results: As musicians, both you and I will be completely satisfied with the musical result of my work. That's my simple guarantee.
Affordability: My fee for maintenance tuning is $120. This service is appropriate for pianos that are maintained regularly. Full service tuning is $160. Full service includes maintenance tuning plus additional services as needed: minor repairs, pitch raising and action adjustments. Your piano has unique needs. We may want to discuss options for the best maintenance plan at additional cost.
I provide tuning and other in-home piano services. Cities and towns served include among others: Ogden, Roy, Clearfield, Layton, Syracuse, Farmington, and Bountiful.
More About Duane
I'm a musician. Does a tuner need to be a musician? No, but I approach tuning from that point of view. I am not a performing artist, but I do enjoy playing the piano every day! The "approachable" jazz ballads of Marian McPartland are my favorites. For the past 20 years, I have performed as the tenor in the barbershop quartet, Sound Accord.
I'm an engineer. Does a tuner need to be an engineer? Once again, no. However, I also approach tuning from that point of view. Technology is my thing, especially historic technologies. The greatest satisfaction I find in piano work is bringing an old instrument back to life. It is a thrill to rebuild it from the soundboard up, and make a hundred year old instrument sound new again!
Every day is a joy with a piano that's in tune!
