Based near Fareham, Hinton Pianos are a small independent business serving the South Hampshire area including Gosport, Portsmouth and Southampton.
As proprietor of Hinton Pianos, Andrew Hinton is our sole tuner and completes most repair and renovation work both on the road and in the workshop.
Having served a one year apprenticeship at St. Martins Music Shop in his home town of Lincoln after leaving school in 1984, Andrew went on to complete a three year full time course at the world-renowned Newark Technical College and qualified in 1988.
After successfully achieving a College Diploma and City & Guilds qualification, Andrew went onto a second apprenticeship in North London with Muswell Hill Pianos. Here he worked extensively with new Kawai pianos and gained further knowledge in all aspects of the piano industry.
Andrew has gained many years experience in tuning pianos mostly in client's homes and public buildings such as churches, schools, theatres and hotels. He has previous tuning experience with the BBC, Greenwich Naval College and for various concert venues around the UK. He also served for a short time as a mobile piano tuner for the well-known John Broadwood & Sons.
