David Patterson - Master Piano Technician

General FAQ’s

How long have you been doing this?

Well, if you mean in any capacity, I could say since 1970. Working professionally part-time would be 1973. And working full-time: 1976. But, I’ve always noticed that the “How long?” question is what people will ask; rarely is it “How many?” So if a person has worked at some other job and tuned 10 pianos a year for 40 years — big deal. That’s not much experience. I surpassed 30,000 servicings in 2006. That’s more important than the 40 years I’ve been doing it.

Do you take credit cards?

Yes. In 1987, I began taking all major credit cards for payment during a service call.

Which area do you service?

Everywhere and anywhere in the Greater Toronto Area.

Do you work on weekends?

Yes. Many Saturdays are available for the busy piano owners that are both working during the day.

Do you buy and sell pianos?

No. I have never been involved in retail sales.

Do you have a favourite piano?

Like most piano lovers, I like almost all of the incredibly expensive ones.
