Greetings Friends, Curious Onlookers, Shoppers & Repeat Biz Customers:

Good to see you!

Just a brief post-COVID word:  As we emerge from the past years of the COVID nightmare, the piano technology landscape has done a lot of shifting.  I have lost two technician friends (one from COVID and one from post-heart surgery complications), and I have seen others reorient their focus.  It has left the Atlanta area with fewer capable piano service related technicians whom to contact.  Just in case you find it too untimely to access my services, please feel free to visit the Music Related Providers tab here on my website.  There you will find a list of six technicians - 3 Artisan Level Techs and 3 Pre-Artisan General Service Techs like myself.  At the current moment, I am prioritizing my Repeat Biz Customers and my Teacher/Music School Referral new customers.  The easiest way to reach me is either via texting or email.  During my peak busy season (November thru April) it is not at all uncommon to be booking my services 6 to 8 weeks out.  Please keep that in mind as you plan for events.

My name is Russell Gallman.  I am an independent, self-employed, Certified and Registered Piano Technician serving many counties in the north Metro Atlanta, Georgia area.  I have been involved in piano technology related services for well over 15 years.  Piano was an important aspect of my life during my early youth through my early adult development years.  Beginning around age 45, I segued back into my first love - piano.  I am indeed fortunate to be able to provide services in a field that nurtures and sustains our hearts.

Because I entered the field middle-age, I found many doors for super advanced artisan training already closed.  However, I engaged in solid, advanced basic training at the University of Western Ontario located in London, Canada.  The skill sets that I cultivated under their guidance have allowed me to build a 60%(+) repeat business base over the years.  I refer to my lane of service as Pre-Artisan General Services in which I provide tunings, repairs, piano cleaning and detailing, and humidity control solutions.  My rate structures are mid-range adjusted typically every 3 years.  I avoid the "race to the bottom" blow out numbers, as well as premium artisan costs.  I am proud of having built a reputation for being reliable, fair, and honest.

If you find that you need a rock bottom piano tuning cost, then perhaps you can access Thumb Tack for a possible quote.  Beware though!  Strings break, and you may need my assistance after all.  If you hold advanced degrees in music (MA & PhD), then I would encourage you to visit the Music Related Providers Tab on my website here and scan for Artisan Technicians.  Even though my skills are probably 85% greater than many local techs, artisan techs have a special personality temperament, and their extra "cream of the crop" skills and experience are worth their weight in gold for the advanced musician, artist.  I am fond of the analogy citing the differences between an optometrist and an ophthalmologist.  My lane of service - Pre-Artisan Piano Technology - is comparable to an optometrist; whereas, the Artisan Piano Technician serves at the level of an ophthalmologist.  That still makes me a valuable, affordable, reliable resource for beginning as well as advanced pianists.  Whether breathing life into a child's first starter piano or refining a Steinway Model B, I am grateful for the opportunity to be of assistance.

Since I am a one-person operation, it may take me a little longer to respond to your voice mails, texts and emails.  Keep in mind that my phone can and does go crazy (especially true during election seasons with robocalls, robotexts, and telemarketers); so, reaching out via texts and emails will be greatly appreciated.

Enjoy your visit! Please feel free to contact me with questions or comments.

Your Atlanta Piano Tek,
