Pat Kelly

Pat Kelly has been tuning and repairing pianos in the Greater Cincinnati area for over 40 years. Also well-known as a jazz pianist and bandleader (more here), he takes great pride in his piano technical work.

A 1984 graduate of the University of Cincinnati, College-Conservatory of Music with a degree in Musical Composition, Pat had began his tuning career well before that, beginning with a 3-year full-time employment at Cincinnati's Player Piano Shop in 1976. He is currently a contract tuner at the U.C. College-Conservatory of Music. (See more here.)

Client Comments (more comments)

"The fact that all who play this venerable instrument express gratification in its action, sound and general condition speaks volumes about the skill and commitment of the maintaining technician. Pat Kelly treats our piano as if it were his own."
M.S. - Green Township, OH

"Excellent and timely service. Mr. Kelly had the expertise to repair a badly damaged piano. It was not a routine job by any stretch. The instrument sounds great once more!"
S.S. - Independence, KY

"We have a beautiful Kawai Baby Grand Model GE- 1 piano which we purchased in 1987 and discovered in 2019 to our dismay that the treble bridge had loosened from the soundboard requiring a major repair. Pat Kelly told us he could make the complicated repair and did so on time and on budget. It was heroic work on his part and the piano’s beautiful sound has been fully restored. Pat also tuned and cleaned the piano. We are grateful and recommend him highly to anyone needing expertise for a repair or tuning. Well done! R.W. - Indian Hill

"Pat came to tune our piano. Our piano had not been tuned in quite some time and after tuning, it now sounds wonderful. We had a wonderful experience with Pat and will definitely be asking him to help with future piano service needs." S.H. - Sharonville, OH
