Nathan Witter, piano technician
Piano tuning, repair & restoration
Nathan is no stranger to music. Having grown up in Pensacola, he has been involved in school and community music since elementary school. Music interest was realized
as early as the first grade when Nathan directed a “choir” of his classmates for a parent day visit. Lessons on piano began at age 6 and violin was added at age 9. School orchestra and band lasted throughout high school in addition to piano playing in church.
Competitions such as Sonata Contest and Solo/Ensemble and evaluations such as Student Day and Piano Guild were also a part of his music instruction.
Nathan has been actively teaching music since
college through private lessons and is a member of the Pensacola
Music Teachers Association. He has also been involved in teaching
band and strings that past 8 years in the West Florida Home
Education Music Association. Nathan currently plays violin with
the Pensacola Symphony Orchestra and is music director at
Pinewoods Presbyterian Church.
Nathan’s interest in piano
tuning began in college when a fellow classmate was tuning one of
the practice pianos. After observing him for a while, Nathan
determined this was something he had to investigate for himself.
After spending some time studying the art of piano tuning and
practicing tuning on many pianos, he was able to apprentice as a
technician under Mr. Danny Lyons.
Nathan has worked as a
piano technician at Dollarhide's Music Center in downtown
Pensacola since 2005. He has completed all examinations required
by the Piano Technicians Guild (PTG) and is certified as a
Registered Piano Technician (RPT).
