Piano Tuning

Normal piano tuning fee for pianos close to standard pitch is $125.00.

For normal home use, it is usually recommended that you have your piano tuned by a professional piano tuner twice a year. (Often, piano owners have their instrument tuned only once a year.) This is not a firm rule, however, and many pianists prefer to have their piano serviced more or less frequently. If your piano has not been tuned in many years, it may require a pitch adjustment before a fine tuning can be done. Pitch Adjustment is an additional charge of $75.

Piano Repair

Piano Repair

Accidental trauma and heavy use especially in older pianos can cause parts to break.  This is no need for alarm.  This happens all the time.  Most issues can be resolved with knowledge, technique, and glue.  Sometimes parts need to be replaced.  This is not a problem as most parts are readily available.  Repinning pivot points between parts is commonly required.  Problems may present as notes “not working”, “working poorly or sluggishly” or “clicking”.

Whatever the problem, I can address it.

Piano Regulation

Regulation

Regulation is the process of aligning every part of the action to interact in a very specific and prescribed way with it’s neighboring parts.  Starting with the leveling of the keyboard, the sole contact point for a musician with the instrument.  Thereafter, each piece is aligned with precision and strict, minute tolerances.  Grand pianos have more complex actions and therefore require more time and effort to regulate, but the end result offers the musician a means of communicating with a full spectrum of nuance.  A well regulated piano is a joy to play.  Combine it with an excellent tuning and you and your instrument will sing.

He was very punctual and professional. He evaluated the piano and gave us good information on what could be done to enhance its sound. He gave recommendations and was very responsive to questions. Will definitely use him again!

5 Stars

The biggest enemy of the piano comes when the temperature or humidity changes in its room. Maintaining the proper level of humidity inside your piano will bring about the tuning stability.
