Peter Tryon's Confessions of a Piano Tuner is a charming, autobiographical tale of life spent travelling around rural East Anglia tuning pianos. But this is also a personal account from boyhood of how music and more specifically the mechanics of that wonderful instrument, fired early imagination and gave rise to a lifelong fascination and involvement with the piano.As much a social commentary on people, the anecdotes about different characters are filled with humour and the text is light and easy to read. The unspoiled beauty and charm of East Anglia provides a perfect backdrop to Peter Tryon's account, all combining together to make this a book that you won't want to put down.

Raised near Portsmouth, but a Suffolk man by adoption, Peter Tryon's love of pianos, organs and all things musical began when he was a teenager.
In addition to tuning and repairing pianos of all sorts, he has worked as a teacher and Director of Music until 2015 in the UK's fourth largest parish church: St. Mary's Bury St Edmunds. Unable to retire properly, he has taken on the role of organist at the Parish Church in Lavenham, one of England's prettiest villages.
Peter is married with four sons and two grandchildren.
