About Mike Miccio

Michael M. Miccio, RPT
Bringing Harmony to the World, One Piano at a Time

Really! For more than twenty years, Mike Miccio has been the piano technician for hundreds of recordings by artists as diverse as Garrick Ohlsson, Billy Joel, Tony Bennett, Gerry Mulligan, Madeleine Forte, Vinson Cole, Ruth Laredo, Gabriela Imreh, Sarah Davis Buechner, David Allen Wehr, Cynthia Raim, Bruce Barth, Ben E King, and many more. These recordings are enjoyed by people all around the world.

Mike has been a Registered Piano Technician in the Piano Technicians Guild since 1974 and has passed their most rigorous tests at very high levels. For example: The tuning exam is a 4 hour exam, testing all aspects of a tuning from accuracy to stability and requires that the examinee pass all 9 sections at a grade of 80 percent or better. Mike has passed all nine with scores from 91 to 100, and that is before he tested for and was accepted as a concert technician with what is now called Yamaha Artist Services Inc., the New York concert department of Yamaha Corporation of America. The concert department of any manufacturer requires that you continually refine your tuning voicing and regulating skills. Mike is confident that he is at the top of his craft and continues to seek better techniques and learn more each year by participating in as many continuing education classes, seminars and technical conventions as he can.

Mike has also taught many local and regional piano technology classes and has been invited three times and has taught at the national level in the Piano Technician's Guilds yearly Conventions at Kansas City, Nashville and Rochester.

In addition to all this, Mike has the honor of having been included in the book by Stephen H. Brady, RPT, Under the Lid, The Art & Craft of the Concert Piano Technician. In the summer of 2008 Mike was also spot lighted in an article in Yamaha Corporation's Accent magazine, entitled "Mike Miccio, still learning after all these years" celebrating his 20 years providing top notch concert service.

In a magazine revue of the CD recording of Chopin's Polonaises and Impromptus by Garrick Ohlsson Richard Halley stated, "The Bosendorfer Imperial grand has a commanding aural presence which amply serves Ohlsson's interpretive intentions. Technician/tuner Michael Miccio is credited in the liner notes, and he deserves it; the chords ring with unusual brilliance -RH"
