Piano tuners in Marbella

As a piano tuner I love to come and work in Marbella. If you live here you can consider yourself a lucky person, Marbella is one of the best places on earth you can live.

It´s clima is perfect, not too hot in the summer and lovely and mild in the winter, with a beautiful mediterranean light and surronded by mountains and semitropical lush vegetation, not to mention the numerous white sand lovely beaches, the vibrant night life and the charming old village.

Walking around its narrow cobblestone streets smelling the perfume of azahar (the flower of the orange trees) in april is a caress for the senses. No wonder that so many people fall in love with the place and come to live here. You probably are wondering what does it have to do cobblestone streets and perfumes of azahar with piano tuning? Well, nothing really, neither I work for the Marbella Turist Board, just my way to say how nice is the place and why I love coming here to work.

Do you know the Startlite festival at Marbella?
Is a magnificient event that takes place every year during the months of July and August. For the last years I had the chance to tune pianos for the likes of Tony Bennet, Christopher Cross, Hugh Laurie, Rafael, Julio Iglesias, Paul Anca, Chucho Valdez and many others. If you pop around five or six at evening (It is very hot) and see a guy tinkering the keys, do not think is the piano player, probably it is me tuning the piano.

I also service the piano at the Municipal Marbella Theater and take care of many pianos from private owners in the area, not only Marbella, but also Estepona, Soto Grande and practically all the locations nearby.

Something about me
I have been a piano tuner and piano player for nearly 35 years and have work mainly in Manchester (England) and now in Spain. I feel very fortunate as I love my job, even now after so many years I am still passionate about pianos (one of the most perfect machines mankind have ever made) and enjoy and feel motivated about tuning and reparing pianos, a very demanding but also interesting profession. Because of being a piano tuner I had the chance to travel and meet many great artists and interesting people, but the best part of it is being able to work in what I like. Thank you pianos!
