History and Experience:

Service to the client started in 1985 when Jon started tuning pianos in the tri-state area. In 1988 he became a Registered Piano Technician(RPT) with the Piano Technicians Guild. This designation indicates competency in piano knowledge, tuning ability, and repair and maintenance of pianos. Over the years he held the office of VP and President of the Pittsburgh chapter of the Piano Technicians Guild. This year, 2013, he was recognized at the Annual Convention for 25 years as an RPT.

At Langham Piano Service continuing education is emphasized to stay current with trends and skills, old and new. This is accomplished by frequent attendance at regional and national annual conventions, private study and interaction with leaders in the business.

Specialization:

Tuning is the forte of the service.

Performance of the piano is a keen interest. We want the piano to feel good under the fingers and respond to nuances of touch, so the music expresses what you, the player want. Sometimes, if needed, we will take it apart to make the repair.
 

Goals:

The satisfaction of the client is the overarching goal of Langham Piano Service. Tears of joy and notes of thanks are what we remember most.

Our pledge is to improve your piano in tone, in function, and in the potential for beautiful music.

AREA REGISTERED PIANO TECHNICIAN PARTICIPATES IN

ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL PIANO INSTITUTE

Lancaster, PA. Jonathan Langham, Registered Piano Technician (RPT) of Wellsburg, WV was among more than 600 attendees, including piano service specialists, manufacturers, and suppliers from around the world, who attended the 61 st annual Piano Technicians Guild Convention and Technical Institute.

Langham’s concentration of learning this year was improving the touch of the keys along with the tone in the middle and lower range of the piano. Several expert craftsmen illustrated their work in class; one brought his own piano, demonstrating his improvements materially. This will enable Mr. Langham to improve local customers’ pianos, who care about getting the best from their instrument.

Langham serves the tri-state area in all aspects of piano care, including tuning, repair,  and tweaking to make the ordinary special to the customer.

Some new faces highlighted this year's event. Nearly 100 technicians attended their first PTG convention, and the trade show featured ten first time exhibitors. Education was the focus of the event with four days of classes covering all aspects of piano service as well as business and health and wellness classes.

The exhibit hall featured 70 booths and offered attendees the chance to inspect new tools, play many different pianos and other instruments and talk to industry representatives. Evening concerts and awards banquets were also a highlight.

“The PTG Convention is the world’s largest gathering of piano technicians,” said PTG President Paul Brown, RPT. “The people who come to this event know this is the place to come to challenge yourself with long days of learning from the best technicians in the business.”

An annual event since 1958, the PTG Convention is the world’s largest piano technology convention. The 2019 Piano Technicians Guild Convention will take place in Tucson, AZ.
The Piano Technicians Guild is the world’s premier source of piano service expertise. It promotes the highest possible standards of piano service by providing opportunities for professional development, by recognizing technical competence
through examinations and by advancing the interests of its members.
