Someone once said to a piano tuner, "How can you stand listening to that all day?"
The piano tuner replied, "I guess I just tune it out."
Piano Tuning = $75
Your piano will be singing again with a fresh tuning!
As a performing pianist and musician, music educator, piano owner, tuner, and technician, I have discerning ears and leave the piano sounding rich, even, clear, and full.
I tune pianos aurally, i.e. by ear, to the standard of an A440 tuning fork. Tuning a piano is an art that is part scientific, part mechanical, and all listening. No piano is exactly like any other piano as each instrument has it's unique tonal quality and characteristics.
A piano tuning appointment is scheduled at a convenient time for both parties. A thorough tuning and inspection of the piano lasts approximately three hours, sometimes a little more or less.
If your piano is new or has not been tuned in many years (which is more likely), a pitch raise may be needed. This involves a preliminary tuning to bring the piano strings to proper tension followed by a fine tuning. Not every piano needs this and there is no extra charge for a single pitch raise.
How often should my piano be tuned?
It is recommend to have your piano tuned at least once a year. A practical rule is to have it tuned when it sounds out of tune to another musician. Generally after a year, any piano will benefit from tuning. If it is played a lot, have it tuned more often.
Piano Repair and Regulation
Mechanical issues with the piano, if there are any, are assessed during the initial tuning visit. Sometimes a sticky key or two just needs a little attention!
An estimate and further arrangements can be made if more complex repairs are needed outside the scope of a standard tuning visit.
