Joseph D. Gotta RPT

Over 25,000 Tunings worth of Experience

I have been servicing pianos in the Charlotte, NC area since 1987.  To date I have performed over fourteen thousand tunings.  I have never worked for a dealership so my experience is very diverse.  Dealership tuners’ experience is largely limited to brands they sell. I also have avoided the propaganda and ethical quandaries involved in proprietary dealership politics.

The voluntary RPT certification is the only objective standard of competency in Piano Technology in the USA.

Most technicians tune around five to ten pianos a week.  I tune 20 -30 pianos a week, gaining three times or more times the experience than the average technician in the same amount of time.

My 21+ years of experience may be the equivalent of 50 years experience for the average technician.

Some of the more famous people I have tuned for include:

Matchbox20 / Luciano Pavoratti / Frank Sinatra / James Taylor / Carol King / Warren Zevon / U-2 / Paula Cole / Joshua Redmann / John Ashcroft / One Voice / Jim Bakker / Patti LaBelle / Natalie Merchant / Nina Simone / Bill Conti / Moody Blues / Annie Lennox / Sting /Jim Brickman / Earth, Wind and Fire / Chris Botti / Harry Connick Jr. /
Tori Amos // Stevie Wonder
