David Brisson is a Registered Piano Technician (RPT) with 18 years of professional experience. He is a graduate from Loyola University New Orleans, with a degree in Music Industry Studies and Jazz Piano Performance. David’s journey as a pianist and musician led him to pursue the craft of piano tuning and repair to develop a deeper appreciation and connection to his instrument.

After graduating, David apprenticed under Lance Lafargue, RPT, and became a Registered Piano Technician (RPT) with the Piano Technicians Guild in 2009. David is also a graduate of Yamaha’s technical training program, The Little Red Schoolhouse, and is certified to work on Yamaha and Disklavier pianos.

During that time, he serviced new and used pianos for Lafargue Pianos, the University of New Orleans, Xavier University of Louisiana, the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, Dillard University, Music Shed Studios, Parlor Recording Studio, NOCCA, WWOZ, as well as performance venues, schools, and places of worship across Southern Louisiana.

Currently, David provides tuning and technical services for UC Davis, the Mondavi Center, San Juan School District, the Music Exchange, as well as private homes, retirement communities, schools, and places of worship in the greater Sacramento area.
