Doghouse Pianos Logo Final.png


Doghouse Pianos was established in 2001 by Jim and Amy Tiernan. We are 1999 graduates of the Basic and Advanced Piano Technology programs at Boston’s North Bennet Street School.  Since our days as students at NBSS we have been active members of the Piano Technicians Guild and have both passed a series of exams to achieve Registered Piano Technician (RPT) status.  Actively participating in state, regional, and national conferences through PTG has been an integral part of our craft. 

We have built our business one client, one piano at a time. Relationships that develop with our customers is valuable and we are grateful for the opportunity that each appointment presents. From regular maintenance and repairs to major restoration, we are confident we can help you with all of your piano needs.

Let’s start a conversation!
