ABOUT DOUGLAS BRIERLEYB.Mus, RPT
Piano Service Experience
I have over 29 years of experience tuning and repairing all major brands of pianos. My clients include individuals, piano teachers, hotels, churches, schools, Opera Lyra, Pellegrini Opera, Carleton University, the De La Salle High School for the Performing Arts, and the Royal Conservatory. I am a Registered Piano Technician.
I learned the business through an apprenticeship program. My instruction included piano tuning, repair, action regulation, and rebuilding. In addition to this comprehensive training, I attend local monthly Guild meetings as well as attend their yearly conventions. As a result, I am able to find the most efficient and cost-effective way to bring out the best performance in your instrument.
Originally from Ottawa, I lived in Toronto for 10 years where I earned a Bachelor of Music on violin from the University of Toronto. After graduating I played with the Hamilton Philharmonic, the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony and Symphony Nova Scotia.
I returned to Ottawa to accept a position with the Canadian Forces String Ensemble. After 7 years I left and created Classical Sounds Entertainment Agency and began my career as a piano tuner/technician.
