Duane McGuire, RPT
I am currently focusing on piano restoration projects, and I am not able to schedule piano tunings. However, if your piano is in need of repair, regulation, or restoration services, I welcome your inquiry. Please email, call or text 801-896-4123. For piano tuning, I can recommend qualified piano tuners here: other tuners.
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. 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.
More About Duane
I'm a musician. Does a piano technician need to be a musician? No, but I approach my work 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 more than 20 years, I performed as the tenor in the barbershop quartet, Sound Accord.
I'm an engineer. Does a piano technician need to be an engineer? Once again, no. However, I also approach my work 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 performs exquisitely!
