Piano tuner & restorer


Hi there, I am Colin (new to this forum as from July '12) - and I am a piano teacher, tuner, technician & restorer for upright & grand pianos; I also enjoy wood finishing, french polishing, and the occasional furniture restoration. I have been a musician for just over 30 years, and a piano tuner/restorer since 1997. My main hobby is racing nitro & petrol radio controlled cars, trucks & buggies. I live in Bradford, West Yorkshire.

Welcome. I'm a former piano technician myself, retiring from that profession when I went back to school. Been teaching 25 years.
