About Us

The Piano Gallery was opened in its current location in 2008 by Chris and Marcella Jackson. This venture is the accumulation of many years of hard work, Chris and his family have been directly involved in the piano industry since 1952.

After successfully completing a 3 year full time course at Newark and Sherwood College in Piano Tuning, Maintenance and Repair, Chris joined the family business in Wales where he worked for several years gaining valuable experience. Chris also worked in London and Luxembourg before moving to Ireland 11 years ago. In recent years he has successfully established a rapidly expanding piano sales and tuning business, tuning for in excess of 70 piano teachers in the region as well as most of the major musical events e.g. Wexford Festival Opera, Kilkenny Arts Festival, Eigse, Duiske Concerts, VISUAL arts centre and the George Bernard Shaw Theatre, Carlow etc...

In 2003 Chris became only the second piano tuner in the Republic of Ireland to successfully hold full membership of the Pianoforte Tuners Association.
