Paul Tunzi AM
With a unique combination of musical skill and technical knowledge, a piano tuner─technician plays a key role in maintaining one of the most popular of instruments in our community.
Paul Tunzi AM has over 40 years of professional experience and along with his tuning work, has committed himself to passing on knowledge and skills to younger generations. It is expected that there will be a loss of experienced concert tuners and technicians in coming years.
“Preparing keyboard instruments for the world’s finest musicians has always been a pleasure. However, I receive the most sense of achievement by mentoring and journeying with students learning their craft. I want to ensure that the next generation of artisans can be as equipped as I was.”
“I am profoundly humbled to be recognised for doing what I love doing. It’s a privilege to serve the creative arts that can bring so much joy and purpose to the community.
He expresses thanks to his wife for her constant encouraging support and inspiration, and to his mentors and the music institutions of Perth that afford him the privilege of working with the most passionate, creative people.
