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.

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.
