Piano Tuning and Technical References

  Over the years I have been lucky enough to work with some wonderful people and some wonderful pianos. Here are a few testimonials.  

“I could not imagine a more professional attendant – both technical and musical – than Stephen. My Bluthner has not only maintained its quality but has changed for the better in his care. I owe its enrichment entirely to his work”.

Sir Neville Marriner CBE


“I am happy to endorse Stephen Carroll Turner’s work with the highest praise. He has prepared my piano for recordings on many occasions and it is always flawless. He has recently completed a major refurbishment of my Bosendorfer 225 and his care and attention have been exemplary. Tip-top bloke!”

David Owen Norris

“I cannot thank Stephen enough for all the care and attention he has put in my Bosendorfer 170. When I first contacted him I had a piano which had become extremely unreliable: the action was all over the place with stiff and unresponsive keys across the keyboard; the tone of the instrument was unpleasantly metallic and a far cry from the glorious tone it had once had. After an initial period when measurements and data was taken, I instructed Stephen to install a Precision Touch system upon his suggestion. It was pretty much a leap of faith on my side and one which I am delighted I have taken. I can proudly say I now have a piano that is perfectly controllable across the whole keyboard, and has a beautiful sound at all dynamic levels, from the loudest forte down to the softest imaginable. This is something I thought I was going to have to give up on, altogether!”

Luke Corradine composer


“Steve is a fine piano technician and I would recommend him to anybody. The University of Sussex uses him to maintain its Steinways, and of course I would not let anybody else loose on my own piano!”

Martin Butler
Professor of Music, University of Sussex

“Steve maintains my Grotrian Steinweg and Bluthner pianos with loving care and attention to detail. The tuning is immaculate and the sound is great”

David Gilmour of Pink Floyd


"Stephen has been tuning my Bosendorfer for many years now and has kept it in top condition through concerts and recordings. He has such high standards that I always miss him when a clash of dates means he's not available"
