At the age of 15, Justin was honored to become the apprentice to the late master piano technician and rebuilder Susan Graham. She was also renowned for authoring countless technical piano articles. While excelling as Susan’s apprentice, Justin was introduced to the Yamaha Corporation, who put his application at the top of stack to send him to Buena Park, California, where he became the youngest piano technician, at that time, to complete all of the United States Yamaha technician training. His talent continued to flourish as did his client base to over 2000, while his company Classic Piano Shoppe was full of Steinway & Sons, Yamaha, & Baldwin pianos undergoing full restorations. Justin is honored be the piano technician for pianists and artists such as Alicia Keys, Herbie Hancock, Sir Elton John's Red Pianos, Jamie Cullum, David Foster and a full list of artist in his ledger. With a burning passion for design and tone innovation, Justin has challenged the traditional piano world with custom piano designs.
