About James Henry Piano Services

I started my training at the Royal National College for the Blind (R.N.C.B.) in Hereford in January 1984, the course lasted three years and I can honestly say it was the best three years of my life.

The course was quite extensive, taking in many subjects, such as tuning, repairs, piano construction, physics, history etc. The College had over 140 pianos on campus which ranged from early 18th century right up to modern day instruments. My course tutor Mr. Philip Kennedy taught me everything I know about tuning and has remained a great friend since leaving college. At the end of the three years I was awarded a diploma with credit.

After leaving college in November 1986 I started my own business as a piano tuner and technician in Ballymoney, Co. Antrim. Since then I have been servicing and tuning pianos all over Northern Ireland.

I now work for several piano dealers offering them support and advice especially when trading in second hand instruments. I also tune for quite a lot of Churches, Schools and Colleges, Universities, Recording studios and private clients.

I am also the main tuner for the Belfast Waterfront and Ulster Halls, Ulster Orchestra and BBC NI. Preparing concert pianos for professional recordings and performances is a speciality.

I always look forward to meeting new clients both private and professional, I take great pride in my work and I can honestly say there isn't a day goes past when I do not want to go to work.
