My name is Adam Przybyla, and I am a Registered Piano Technician with the Piano Technicians Guild and a graduate of the renowned Chicago School for Piano Technology. I first took up playing music at the age of 9, and I realized early on that I enjoyed building and working on instruments almost as much as I liked playing them. After studying audio production at Ohio University, I spent more than a decade working as a studio and live sound engineer in Chicago, as well as playing pedal steel guitar in a number of old time country outfits around town. Those late nights in loud venues eventually lost their appeal, though, and it occurred to me that becoming a piano tuner could be the perfect means for combining my acute sense of hearing and my knack for tinkering with instruments to make them play their best.
That ultimately led me to CSPT, where I spent an intense year of study under several of Chicago's finest piano technicians, learning all of the primary facets of piano service, including tuning, repair, regulation, and voicing. After a three year stint in Austin, TX, my wife and I concluded that our hearts were still deeply rooted in Chicago, and we happily returned in the fall of 2016.
