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 ôRegistered Piano Technician". 

An Associate is a member who has not passed the RPT examinations.  Associates may be studying piano technology and working toward RPT status, or may be piano retailers, rebuilders, refinishers or other specialists.

Visit the PTG website to search for a piano technician in your locale.  PTG members can use this list to refer customers to each other. A complete listing is also available on the PTG site.  Or, see the business cards of San Francisco members who elected to publish their cards on this site.


Our Purpose...
The Piano Technicians Guild is a nonprofit association of piano technicians. Based in Kansas City, Kansas, the PTG has members throughout the USA and Canada and some members in other countries.
The Piano Technicians Guild (PTG) is a trade association with membership open to anyone with a professional or a vocational interest in piano technology. However, the title of Registered Piano Technician must be earned by passing a series of rigorous examinations. PTG members who have not passed the RPT examinations may avail themselves of PTG's extensive educational offerings in preparation for their taking the RPT exams, and may advertise their PTG memberships.
The Piano Technicians Guild was formed in 1957 by the merger of the American Society of Piano Technicians and the National Association of Piano Tuners.  The earliest organization of piano tuners dates from 1909, with the founding of the American Guild of Piano Tuners.   

Our Mission ...

The mission of the Piano Technicians Guild is to promote the highest possible standards of piano service by providing members with opportunities for professional development, by recognizing technical competence through examinations and by advancing the interests of its members.
