NalbandianAbout Harout Nalbandian

Born in Ethiopia into an Armenian family that embraced and celebrated music, Harout Nalbandian knew from an early age that music was his calling. His father, Nerses Nalbandian, was a prominent musician in Ethiopia, who also had a piano business where Harout learned to tune pianos at an early age. At the age of 16, he started his own rock band, where he was the lead guitarist and singer. To further his studies in music, in 1975, he came to Boston, at the renowned Berklee College of Music, where he studied jazz arranging as well as classical and contemporary composition.

In 1977, he immigrated to Canada, settling in Montreal. Within a week of his arrival, he started tuning pianos for the Eaton’s company. He became their concert piano tuner and as a result met some very prominent artists such as Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Yves Montand, Roger Whittaker, Claude Léveillée, Diane Dufresne, Martine St-Claire, Dizzy Gillespie, McCoy Tyner, Bill Evans, and numerous others.

Being an entrepreneur at heart, he always wanted to have his own business. Dissatisfied with the way most pianos were restored, he took woodworking and re-finishing courses to add to his technical skills, to provide his customers with superior piano restoration.

Pianos have been his passion for over 35 years.
