A Little More About Stephen:

Stephen Cinti’s interest in pianos began in childhood when he took piano lessons from his mother. As a teenager in Boise, Idaho, he diversified his musical pursuits by taking up electric guitar, and playing with various bands in the Boise area. This eventually led to musical studies at the Musician’s Institute in Los Angeles. After completing his degree in contemporary guitar performance, Stephen moved to the Live Music Capital of the World (Austin, TX) to see what kind of a life he could make for himself in the pursuit of musical performance. While living there, he met his wife, Samantha. While continuing to pursue a career with playing guitar, Stephen wasn’t satisfied with needing to have an office job to make ends meet, and began exploring a work that could also be a passion. Through some conversations and meetings, he learned about the possibilities offered in a career in piano technology. He remembers fondly his first meeting with Steve Walthall, the regional Vice-President of the Piano Technician’s Guild. As he walked through Walthall’s workshop, he was overcome with the sense that this was exactly what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. Afterwards, he began apprenticing with Mr. Walthall and then started his own business as a full-time piano technician in Austin and the surrounding areas. Stephen is a Registered Piano Technician with the Piano Technicians Guild, and in his business, Stephen serves individuals, organizations, and does contract work for the local Steinway Gallery, as well as for the all-Steinway school Huston-Tillotson University. When he’s not tuning or repairing pianos, Stephen continues to be an active part of the Austin music scene as a session guitar player. Stephen and Samantha also enjoy visiting with friends or planning trips to colder climates, another passion that Stephen looks forward to marrying with his love for pianos.
