Sodo Pianos / Paul Burleigh

Education / A-sharp Piano
I am the primary technician for Sodo Pianos.  I hold a Bachelors degree in music on piano.  Following College I tried my hand at teaching but it didn't really click for me.  I then went to work for a record company for about 5 years until I decided to get back into pianos.  I studied the Randy Potter School of Piano Technology and got my first piano job at A-sharp piano rebuilding with Rich Pierro in New Jersey. 

Steinway and Sons-NYC
A year after that I applied at Steinway and Sons in New York and held a job there for almost 8 years.  While at Steinway and Sons I worked in retail, helped the concert department,  and maintained the selection room of Steinway B's (7') and D's (9') among other responsibilities.  In the end I have received training, qualifications, and experience beyond the average technician.  While at Steinway I serviced pianos at many prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Radio City Music Hall, The Village Vanguard and many more.

Sodo Pianos / Paul Burleigh
