PIANO TUNER AND TECHNICIAN

I moved from NY to South West Fl in August, 2014. I had a thriving piano tuning and repair business in Eastern Suffolk County, Long Island, for thirty years. I was living about 15 miles west of the Hamptons and found myself frequently doing concert tunings for the rich and famous. I had the privilege of meeting many great musicians and was always able to please even the most demanding ones!

I tune strictly by ear, which I feel is the best way to get the ideal temperament from a piano. Every piano is different and has a unique sound, therefore, it’s virtually impossible to tune a piano mathematically.

I was a registered member of the Piano Technicians Guild and passed a series of tests including theory, repairs, and a master tuning test.

I’ve also installed many player piano kits, converting standard grand and upright pianos into player pianos, as well as extensive experience regulating, repairing and rebuilding pianos.

I was the technician for Middle Country School District with over 60 pianos to keep in tune and good working order including special tunings for all the concerts.

    I just have to say, if you own & enjoy playing the piano. You can’t make a better choice then to have Roy Ratigan Sr. Sevice & tune your piano. I have to say that Roy is one of the last few who still tune pianos by ear using the tuning forks, & takes great in being able to do so!! There for if you want heavenly music from your piano please call Roy Ratigan Sr., & let him show you what you’ve been missing, when it comes to your piano.
