Mike Beever is a trained piano tuner & technician and studied Piano Technology from 1985-87 at the Leeds College of Music, North England under the tutelage of Alastair Lawrence of Lawrence & Nash Pianos, Otley, West Yorks, UK.
Mike's business is centered around providing a premium piano tuning service. Each customer's piano is given the very best care and attention including up to a 90 minute standard tuning & regulation. Mike also specializes in the sound of the instrument and will always get the very best out of each instrument by applying his experienced knowledge of hammer voicing/shaping, regulation and tuning stability.
