Welcome to the Doghouse!

Established in 2001, Doghouse Pianos has grown steadily to become a recognized leader in piano service and restoration in Southeastern Connecticut and Western Rhode Island. We proudly service pianos in homes, schools, and churches as well as local and regional performance venues.

Services: Piano tuning, repair, restoration, regulation, voicing, humidity control system installation, appraisals, evaluations. Should you need to have your piano moved, we are happy to provide the name and contact information of a professional mover.

Restoration: We specialize in the comprehensive restoration of fine grand and upright pianos, as well as the sentimental family heirloom piano. Our restoration shop has grown from one room in our apartment, to a 2000 square foot facility in Mystic, Connecticut. We use only the finest replacement parts available for each restoration. We can also accommodate any requests for specific products or brands upon consultation.

Doghouse Pianos is owned and operated by Jim Tiernan, RPT and Amy Tiernan, RPT. As Registered Piano Technicians, (RPTs) we enjoy being active members of our local Connecticut Chapter, as well as participating in regional and national seminars of the Piano Technicians Guild. We are graduates of Boston’s North Bennet Street School, having completed the two-year, full time Basic and Advanced Piano Technology Programs in 1999.

Accessories: In addition to services, we provide a wide range of high quality piano accessories. Benches, lamps, castors, dollies or covers- whatever your need, Doghouse Pianos can provide and deliver products to your door.

Lastly, we’d like to say that if you and your piano are “in the Doghouse”, that’s a pretty good place to be!

We love what we do and we’d be happy to talk with you about your piano. Give us a call, or contact us by email; let’s start a conversation about your instrument!

Thank you for stopping by the Doghouse!


We have built our business one client at a time, one piano at a time. We value the relationship that develops with our customers and we are grateful for the opportunity that each new service call presents.
