Our Story

Founded in 2002, LaPorte Piano quickly became Eastern Connecticut's Premier Piano Service Company. LaPorte Piano provides top-quality piano tuning, repair and restoration services to our clients in Connecticut and Rhode Island. Our business started out in a meager 300 square foot garage, and today we operate out of a 5300 square foot shop! Within our state of the art facility, we offer complete rebuilding, re-conditioning and re-manufacturing services. 

In 2007, we completed certifaction installation classes for PianoDisc and QRS Piano Systems. Installing over 60 systems per year, we are Connecticut's largest digital player piano installers. 

In 2014, LaPorte Piano completed rigorous training to become a Licensed and Certified Installer for Wessel, Nickel and Gross high performance action products.  With limited Certified Installers in the United States, we are excited with the opportunity this presents our clients.  

Combining the Wessel, Nickel and Gross action parts with our advanced action geometry protocol and CAD design software, our re-manufactured grand piano actions are built to our customers exacting specifications, often times exceeding the original manufacturers design specifications.

With his extensive experience and deep understanding of the instrument, Al has not only mastered the art of piano performance but also excels in preserving and enhancing the musical integrity of pianos. 

His expertise in tuning and restoration reflects his commitment to ensuring each piano he works on delivers its optimal sound and playability, making him a revered figure among musicians and piano enthusiasts alike.

Leveraging his experience in precision engineering, Andrew transitioned into the piano industry, where he applies his technical acumen and fine-tuned skills to piano tuning, repair, and restoration.
