Cliff Meakin - Piano Tuner Melbourne - Warragal

Cliff Meakin is an Australasian Registered Piano Technician (ARPT). Cliff holds a certificate in piano technology from the Australasian School of Piano Technology. Cliff is a full member of the Victorian Piano Tuners and Technicians Guild, the Victorian branch of the Australasian Piano Tuners and Technicians Association. Cliff is currently the newsletter editor for the Victorian Piano Tuners and Technicians Guild.

Cliff sets up new "out of the box" pianos for customers in Melbourne. New pianos must be tuned several times and regulated to fine specifications to give the best experience with the new piano and to make the piano as stable as possible in its new home. Cliff also works on all other pianos and has a full workshop for repairs and restorations. Many older instruments respond beautifully to careful hammer reshaping, regulation and voicing. This work is very affordable and can quickly restore a tired sounding piano to a reasonable instrument again. Cliff is happy to assess a piano for you, knowing something of the condition of a piano before you buy it can save you a lot of time and money!
