Ben E Johnston, RPT

Ben Johnston was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska.  He graduated from
West High School in 1966 and attended the Alaska Methodist University in Anchorage, and
University of Alaska Faribanks and Anchorage.  

He moved to Homer in 1970 and became a jack-of-all-trades, working
various jobs from truck driving to engineering on a commercial fishing vessel.

Ben married, had a daughter, and in 1989 attended Emil Fries Piano Hospital and Training Center
in Vancouver, Washington, graduating with honors.  Being a woodworker, metal smith, and having
an intense love of music, the piano tuning and repair training tied them all together for Ben.  

In 1993 Ben and his family moved to Palmer, in the beautiful Matanuska Valley, where he resides
today with an ever growing piano business:
