Piano Tuning and Repair Service
Denver Metro, Front Range Colorado, Anywhere

Dear Piano Owner,

Your piano will be singing again with a fresh tuning! As a pianist, performing musician, music educator, piano owner, tuner, and technician, I have discerning ears and leave the piano sounding rich, even, clear, and full. My clients include individuals, families, professional musicians, recording studios, live music venues, schools, churches, and more.

Aural Piano Tuning

I tune pianos aurally, i.e. by ear, starting with a tuning fork and have mentored with a master tuner.

Tuning pianos is an art that is part scientific, part mechanical, and all listening. No piano is exactly like any other and every instrument has it's own unique sonic characteristics. My goal is to bring out the very best sound that I can in every piano!

An 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 depending on the state of piano. Quiet on the set please!

Pitch Raise

If your piano is new or has not been tuned in many years, a pitch raise (pitch correction) may be needed to bring the piano's tuning up or closer to A440. This involves a preliminary tuning to bring the piano strings to proper tension followed by a fine tuning.

How often should your piano be tuned?

I recommend having your piano tuned at least once a year. Generally after a year, any piano will benefit from tuning. If it is played a lot, have it tuned more often. A practical rule is to have it tuned when it sounds out of tune to you or another musician.

Piano Repair and Regulation

Regulation is the process of making technical adjustments to the piano action to compensate for the effects of wear and atmospheric changes on the wood and cloth parts that have occurred over the months and years of use so that each part does exactly what it should at exactly the right time.

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! I can handle all aspects of piano repair and regulation.

  • Action Regulation and Repair
  • String Replacement
  • Key Regulation and Repair
  • Pedal Regulation and Repair
  • On-Site Piano Cleaning
  • Full Restoration
  • Piano Appraisals and Evaluation
  • Etc.

Dustin left our out of tune for several years piano sounding beautiful again at a great price. We would hire him again! -Michell

Dustin did a wonderful job on our piano, which had not been tuned in quite some time and needed a pitch raise and tuning. I would have called it a day at one point, but Dustin carried on until every key was making the correct sound. Great job and highly recommended! -Laurie

Dustin was just great! I needed my piano tuned quickly, and he made himself available the next day. He was on time and got right to work. My teenager was sick that day, and we had to go to Urgent Care. I felt comfortable enough to leave Dustin in the house alone and he was willing to do so. The piano sounds great and I'm so pleased with Dustin's services! Additionally, his charges were very reasonable. I won't hesitate to use Dustin again. Thank you! -Martha

In short, Dustin was amazing. He took the time work with every string, making every note sing. I've worked with a few piano tuners so far, and for the most part, they could care less about the sound quality as long as the piano is correct according to their scope. Dustin made sure that it was perfect. Could not be happier. -Chris

Dustin has tuned our piano for a few times now. He's very detailed oriented and the charge is very reasonable. Highly recommended. -Ipin

Dustin is professional and got my piano in tune after moving my piano cross country. He spent over 3 hours tuning the piano by ear and sounds perfect to me. He is very knowledgeable about piano mechanics and is a friendly guy to chat with. Would definitely contact him again for my piano needs. -Diana

Dustin tuned our baby grand, a 1923 Knabe that was restored in 1982 and last tuned in 2004. He got the job because he emphasized that he tunes by ear. He'll now be our go-to for all tuning and maintenance because he so ably demonstrated both his ear and heart for pianos. Dustin worked long and patiently on a tough tune, and we could not be more delighted with the result. We are so happy and fortunate to have found Dustin in Denver. -Cynthia
