Glenn Houselander, Certified Piano Technician. Piano Tuning and Service in Wellington County and the GTA

ABOUT ME

Friendly, caring, professional, and not allergic to pets. Remember when your piano was more than just a large piece of furniture in the corner of your house? I'll turn it back into the instrument you want to play.

 

I started playing piano at 7 and am classically trained through the RCM. In 2008 I received my certificate in Piano Technology at the University of Western Ontario. All of my tunings to date have been done aurally, and though it's fun making noise on pianos all day, most of my enjoyment comes from the many customers who invite me into their studios and homes. 

I am currently based in Fergus, Ontario, and am servicing the areas in the map below:

SERVICES

A piano is both a heavy and delicate instrument.  Its strings are under a great deal of tension, and its materials - wood and metal - are affected by any changes in their environment.  For these reasons, it is recommended that your piano be serviced at least twice a year, whether it is being played or not. 

All prices include HST

HEALTH & SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

UPDATED APRIL 17, 2023: 

I am no longer wearing a mask by default when I visit my clients' homes, but if you are more comfortable with me wearing a mask, I am more than happy to do so! 

As always, I request the following: 

  • Access to a sink to wash my hands

  • Please clear off all items from the top and immediate surroundings of the piano prior to my arrival.

  • If anyone in your home or studio is not feeling well, please contact me to reschedule your appointment

CLEANING YOUR PIANO

Here are some steps to keep your piano keys clean: 

  • Wash your hands before and after playing

  • Clean your piano keys!  Here is a great resource for cleaning your piano keys safely. 

    • Note that disinfecting sprays and wipes can damage your keys.

    • It can be tricky to know if you have ivory or plastic keys.  Contact me if you are unsure. 

    • Be very careful to not get any drips down the side of the keys - that can damage the wood under the key tops

Please don't hesitate to get in touch with any other questions or concerns. Wishing good health to my family, friends, and customers!
