– Duncan Peterson, RPT, Owner
We’ve been in business since 2003. Since then Duncan has achieved the credential of Registered Piano Technician (RPT) the most widely recognized professional piano tuning accreditation in the country, as well as attending multiple trainings around the country. He has also been trained at Steinway & Sons in New York as well as at the Yamaha Corporate Headquarters in California.
As an independent contract technician Duncan services the pianos at Salt Lake Community College, Murray School District, Nebo School District High Schools, and in many homes across the Wasatch Front. He has tuned for top musicians in Utah including Jon Schmidt, Paul Cardall, Big Bad Voo Doo Daddy, and has been a contract technician in charge of as many as 270 pianos on BYU campus and the MTC.
Duncan attended Brigham Young University (1998-2002) where he studied Organ Performance for 3 years, and graduated with his BA in Music. During that time he also played the Carillon Bells on BYU Campus.
He is married to his wife, Gina, and they are blessed with two beautiful daughters, Chloe (8) and Charlotte (6).

(A couple last notes about Duncan):
I had the wonderful opportunity to work for 2 ½ years at M.L. Bigelow & Co. Organ Builders (www.bigeloworgans.com) working on nearly every aspect on building pipe organs from intricate action building to wood carving. It was there that I began to develop the agility and dexterity to work with hand tools, which skill would prove necessary in my piano work. A huge thanks to Mike Bigelow for trusting me to take his carving tools, with no previous experience, and creating some of the works that would adorn his pipe organs for decades to come.
To view pictures of some of my work please visit:
– My First Organ opus 27 – I did the carvings and much of the gold leaf.
– My Last Organ opus 30 – I did the carvings and assisted in building the action, pipes, case and more.
In July of 2007 I became a Registered Piano Technician (RPT) Member of the Piano Technicians Guild.
A Registered Piano Technician (RPT) has passed a series of rigorous examinations on the maintenance, repair, and tuning of pianos. Only RPTs are authorized by The Piano Technicians Guild to display the logo containing the words “Registered Piano Technician”.
I want to make note of my beautiful, wonderful, loving wife. Gina and I met first when I came and tuned her piano in 2004. We got married in April 2007, and continue to live our dreams together!
