Steve Cunningham has been servicing pianos full time since 1979, specializing in tuning, regulation, voicing, concert prep and piano humidity control systems.
He learned to tune pianos while in high school and received his first payment for a tuning when he earned his driver's license in 1970. He "tuned" his way through college at the University of Tennessee, graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in music education. His career began as a band director in Northern Virginia, and full time piano service began in 1979. He then passed the Piano Technicians Guild written, technical and tuning exams in 1980 to become a Registered Piano Technician.
Ongoing training is required to stay up-to-date on the latest technology. Steve has studied with piano builders at the Fazioli factory in Italy, Bösendorder in Austria, and Schimmel in Germany. He has studied with Kawai, Yamaha, Steinway and most all manufacturers at seminars around the country through the Piano Technicians Guild ongoing education programs.
