As the only Registered Piano Technician on Cape Cod, Pat has traveled paved and dirt roads of Cape Cod providing piano servicing, tuning and care for over 30 years. She welcomes your interest and invites you to phone her for an appointment.
In 1982 Pat became a Registered Piano Technician, RPT, with the Piano Technician's Guild.

If your piano needs refurbishing, rebuilding or re-manufacturing Pat can advise you where to go and what to have done.
Some hope that a tuning will correct all piano problems. Many pianos do need refinements year to year to the mechanism yet never get that additional care so eventually they are less enjoyable to play. If you allow your technician additional time for upkeep besides tuning, when needed, you will reap more pleasure from your instrument.
