Mark McKeown, BMus. DipPT. CPT.
Mark first began taking a keen interest in keyboard instruments at the age of 4 years old. Since then he has led a music-driven life, studying music all the way up to a Bachelor of Music degree. In the past Mark has sung and played with orchestras and he is trained in piano, keyboard, celeste, clarinet and saxophone, as well as orchestral conducting.
In addition to his training, he helped maintain the music department’s practice pianos (approximately 150 instruments in total). During his time at university, he attended the Steinway factory, Steinway Hall and the Yamaha performers’ studio that are all based in New York; here he was given seminars by some of the leading piano technicians in North America. Since then Mark has revisited UWO as a guest lecturer.
In 2005 he moved to Canada to pursue training as a piano technician at The University of Western Ontario. Here he undertook the university’s Piano Technology Programme under the guidance of Don Stephenson – one of Canada’s leading piano technicians.
