Congratulations to Trevin Roming, the first of our new crew of Apprentices to complete basic training and go live for field service! Trevin is available for reduced rate tunings starting at just $70 via our bookings page. Read his bio below, and drop a line to wish him well on his journey into Piano Technology!
Trevin has been a musician ever since he can remember, and considers himself a lifelong learner. He began singing and playing piano at a young age, with a particular interest in the music of Beethoven, Scott Joplin, and George Gershwin. He often utilized his piano skills through middle and high school accompanying the choirs he also sang in. He was a part of the 2010 PMEA All State Choir, as well as the 2011 and 2012 TMEA All State choirs.
He attended the University of Texas at San Antonio where he graduated with a B.A. in General Music. During his education he shifted his focus to jazz piano, improvisation, and composition. He gigged regularly throughout the South Texas area with a traditional jazz group called “The Dirty River Dixie Band.” Trevin set himself apart from other pianists by specializing in the “Harlem stride” piano style, a complex and rhythmically driven playing style. This band was featured on KRTU, San Antonio’s jazz radio station and Texas Public Radio, run by NPR. He also released two albums of original music under his own band “Trevin and the Lamanites.” These albums feature jazz, orchestral, chamber and vocal tunes in a variety of styles.
The thread of piano running through his life eventually led him to the field of piano technology. Along with his interest in acoustic piano work, he experiments with repairs and maintenance on electric keyboards including the Fender Rhodes and Wurlitzer in his free time.
