Full Service
Piano Technician

30+ years experience, serving the greater Portland area and beyond!

Welcome! I’m Linda Scott, Piano Tuner. (Actually, these days we’re called “piano technicians”). I am a Registered Piano Technician, certified by the Piano Technicians Guild (www.pt-g.org), working primarily in the Portland metro area.

Piano tuners love to talk about pianos, and I’m no exception! I enjoy improving all three aspects of piano maintenance: the touch, tone, and tuning. People normally just ask for tuning – but the most dramatic improvements may result from simple fixes to the touch or the tone.

In addition to tuning, voicing (tone), and regulation (touch), there’s cleaning, troubleshooting, and repairing or replacing worn- out parts, appraisals, inspections, and restorations. Some pianos merit repairs; others do not, so it’s important to determine the best course of action: repair or replace.

So…how can you be sure the tuner you hire has the right skills? When you hire a Registered Piano Technician, you know. Find out more about the rigorous testing and professional standards with a search of “Piano Technicians Guild”.

If you’re in the market for a piano, I’m happy to help you through the process. Contact me at pianositter@aol.com, and tell me who the piano is for, what the case should look like, the budget, etc.

Want to really know about pianos? Teachers may want to learn to perform a pre-purchase inspection, clean a soundboard, remove pencils, or adjust pedals. I love to share what I know – just ask! – and check out the “Piano Learning Center”, at ptg.org.

So read on: let me tell you about the work technicians do, special terminology, and what to expect when I come to work on your piano.
