Services


As the services offered vary, so do prices. Piano tuning is one of the most popular services requested. Currently, the price for tuning is $120.00 (ask for the "web page discount" at the time of scheduling an appointment). Discounts are available for regular customers, multiple pianos, and piano teachers. Types of payment accepted: Cash, check, Visa, and MasterCard. Billing is available for commercial accounts. Please contact for me for more information. Do not select a piano tuner or technician based on price alone. Consider the following to make an intelligent decision:

Does the piano tuner even play the piano? It may sound like a trivial question, however you would be surprised at just how many piano tuners cannot even play the instrument. Since I have been playing the piano for over 50 years, I can use my performance experiences to better evaluate and adjust the customer's instrument to achieve a higher standard of excellence.

Is the piano tuner a registered technician? Caution is advised when selecting a piano tuner-technician to service your piano. State and Federal Governments do not license the piano service industry, thus anyone can claim to be a qualified piano tuner. I highly recommend any piano owner to contact a member of the Piano Technicians Guild to service their instrument. I have been a Registered Piano Technician (RPT) Craftsman Member since 1977. The Piano Technicians Guild also has another class of membership known as an "Associate". This is one who has not passed the RPT examinations. Associates may be studying piano technology and working toward RPT status."

The most important thing the Piano Technicians Guild does is to qualify technicians as Registered Piano Technicians to assure quality piano service by requiring that a technician pass a rigorous set of examinations. The RPT credential shows that the technician is ready to handle normal piano service and repair. The Piano Technicians Guild has put a lot of time and effort into its examinations to establish a good set of standardized tests which will help insure quality piano service".
