I am formally educated through the University of Western Ontario’s Piano Technology Program. I enjoy caring for pianos and interacting with those who value them.
My experience as a technician has taught me to appreciate the subtle complexities of this unique instrument, and to understand the needs of pianists and piano owners. I respect and value an honourable reputation and hold myself to a quality work standard. We look forward to providing you with prompt and professional piano service.—Mike Ruttle
Our piano needed a tune-up following an extended period of non-use. Mike recommended a plan of action involving 2 tunings and 2 pitch adjustments. 3 weeks later and it was completely up to pitch, and... still holding months later.read more
What a great experience. We were looking at several used pianos online. Once we narrowed it down to two, we hired Mike to perform an inspection on both. Although they both looked and sounded almost... identical to us and our kids (both starting lessons), one turned out to be in need of action refurbishment and regulation. We were glad to avoid that expense. Mike was able to book us in on short notice so the kids could begin lessons on time. Highly recommend Ruttle piano to assist with purchasing a used piano.read more
He saved our 40 year old Baldwin from needing a full rebuilding. Our piano was always flat, even just a few weeks after a tuning. We decided to try Mike, he was able to use new pins to restore the... tension, and he installed a humidifier into the piano which helps the wood to stay moist. A+, 5 star rating!read more
A neighbor recommended Ruttle to us. Our piano has not been tuned in years and being stuck at home we decided to get it tuned. In all it took 2 tunings over 2 months to get it fully up to pitch. Now... it sounds wonderful. We will be having them out again.read more
I was referred to Ruttle piano works by my teacher (I am a Royal Conservatory Associate Diploma Student). I’m really impressed by the quality of the tuning. Showed up on time, takes debit cards, very... convenient. Thx!read more
The level of customer service here is outstanding. I purchased a piano tuning as a gift for my daughter. Ruttle piano coordinated with my son-in-law to perform the tuning while she was out of the... house. We are all so happy with the result.read more
Ruttle piano tunes the piano at my building (Seniors Residence). Always prompt, polite and professional. They fixed the leg when it was loosened during a move between rooms, and set up the piano on a... heavy-duty dolly so it can be moved without straining the frame or built-in casters.read more
I can’t say enough nice things about the piano tuning service we received. Mike was clearly skilled & knowledgeable and spent way more time tuning our piano than I expected. We had a key that wasn’t... playing properly which he fixed quickly & then raised the pitch as it was very flat. It sounds nicer now than it has after any other tuning we had done. Plus he’s a super personable guy. I’ve had our piano tuned before & wasn’t sure what we paid for but this time I absolutely can tell the difference. Amazing!read more
We were in need of a new piano tuner, as our long time tuner had passed away. After a search of various piano services in Calgary, I settled on Ruttle Piano Works, both because of the useful... detailed information on their website and because our piano (an upright grand Heinzman over 100 years old) needs special care. I made the appointment on line, and Mike Ruttle came to our home, right on time. He is pleasant, very knowledgeable, did a fine job tuning (including a pitch raise), and gave me much useful information about care for our piano. I am most impressed with Ruttle Piano Works, and highly recommend Mike Ruttle. Ruttle Piano Works will definitely be our "go to" service for all our future piano care needs.read more
Mike at RPW has been servicing our piano for a few years how. He is excellent - prompt, professional, courteous and friendly. A real pleasure to have him in our home. We would not hesitate to... refer them at all.read more
