Jack Johnson – Analog Aural Kinetic Piano Tuner, Musician, Mentor
Seasoned, experienced Aural Melodic Piano Tuner, Technician, Rebuilder and Musician using his experience and gifts to advance the Arts.

He was mentored with a seasoned technician and started his own shop on the left bank of the Shiawassee River in Owosso, Michigan in 1980. A few years later becoming a dealer for Knabe, Chickering, Baldwin and Mason Hamlin pianos.
