New Zealand's most comprehensive expert piano service
First class piano maintenance is vital if instruments are to fulfil their musical potential and provide the pianist with a responsive musical instrument.
Jenkin Piano Service technicians are among the most highly qualified in the world. We service pianos in some of New Zealand’s most prestigious concert venues from Whangarei to Invercargill. Over the past 25 years we have built up an unparalleled level of knowledge and expertise in piano servicing.
Our independent service is one of a kind in Australasia, offering excellent tuning and a large, fully-equipped workshop capable of carrying out every possible type of piano repair, from complete rebuilding including cabinet refinishing to minor upright repairs.
We recently completed a ten-year collaboration with sculptor Michael Parekowhai rebuilding He Korero Purakau mo Te Awanui o Te Motu, Story of a New Zealand River from soundboard to performance piano. The beautifully carved Steinway Concert Grand is the centrepiece of Michael's exhibition for the 2011 Venice Biennale - the world's oldest and most prestigious visual art exhibition.
We provide a personalised service, tuning private pianos in homes and performance instruments for visiting international pianists, musicians, music teachers and recording studios. Our reputation for fine tuning and fastidious service is second to none.
In addition to tuning private pianos, we tune and care for pianos at THE EDGE (the Auckland Town Hall, Aotea Centre and The Civic), The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, Dunedin and Christchurch Town Halls, Otago University, The Arts Centre in Christchurch, Founders Theatre Hamilton, the Michael Hill International Violin Competition and the Auckland International Piano Festival.
