I am a member of the Piano Technicians Guild and a Registered Piano Technician with that organization. “The Piano Technicians Guild is the world’s premier source of piano service expertise.  It promotes the highest possible standards of piano service by providing opportunities for professional development, by recognizing technical competence through examinations and by advancing the interests of its more than 4,000 members.” (From a July, 2009, news release by the Piano Technicians Guild.) “The Piano Technicians Guild grants the Registered Piano Technician (RPT) credential after a series of rigorous examinations that test skill in piano tuning, regulation and repair.” (ibid.)   The Piano Technicians Guild (PTG) authorizes only Registered Piano Technicians to display the PTG logo and the words, “Registered Piano Technician.” I am also affiliated with the Master Piano Technicians of America, another fine professional and educational organization for Piano tuners

In 2006 I graduated from the Randy Potter School of Piano Technology with honors. Before that I earned a Bachelor of Music at Western Michigan University in 1968, and a Master of Music from the same institution in 1972.  In 1994 I graduated from Freedom Farm Bible College (now Freedom Farm School and Seminary) with a Bachelor of  Arts in Pastoral Ministries.

PURPOSE

My hope and purpose for this website is not only to help you in your search for a piano tuner in Colorado Springs, but also to provide you with information that will help you understand your piano and how to keep it in good condition.  As time goes by, I plan to include articles and video material on piano tuning, piano repairs, piano regulation, piano evaluation and piano buying, as well as links to other piano sites that can provide you with helpful information.  The goal is to make available as much useful material as possible.  Even if you do not choose Barber Piano Service as your piano tuning and maintenance provider, the aim of this website is to be a good investment of your time in your pursuit of piano knowledge.

COMMITMENT

I want to provide reasonable rates for piano tuning and other piano services, and I also hope to earn your total satisfaction and respect. If my work as a piano tuner and technician does not rate your five star satisfaction, contact me, and, if God lets me live, I will fix the problem or give your money back.

Thank you for your consideration of Barber Piano Service.
