Ade did a great job tuning an old piano for an event - our guests really enjoyed the result. Plus, he was very flexible in terms of scheduling/logistics!

Thank you, Ade, for tuning my piano. I appreciated your professionalism in bringing back my Yamaha Grand with beautiful sound quality and making the keys in tune. I will like to work with you again and highly recommend your services.

Porter Piano was very flexible in scheduling the appointment based on my availability. The cost was explained in a detailed way which depended on what was found during the tuning. It ended up to be on the lower end. I appreciated the explanation and there were no cost surprises due to this transparency. My piano sounds so much better and it makes playing more enjoyable. I highly recommend Porter Piano.

I have piano tuner before, but he increased his price this year. I decided to try a new tuner. Ade Porter turned out to be good tuner as I expected. After the tuning, the piano sounds beautiful. My son loves it. Ade Porter is new in tuning industry. But his long experience in music definitely helps him grow fast. He is also young in his age, which I believe is important too because tuning is a kind of work sensitive to the ear.

Ade was very responsive and easy to schedule. He arrived on time and his service was great. Piano was very out of tune and is now perfectly tuned. Highly recommend and will be using Ade again for our next tune.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Basic Tuning ($175) - 2hrs - This applies to pianos that are tuned on a regular basis and are within 10ç of standard pitch. Pitch Raise + Tuning ($225) - 2.5hrs - This applies to pianos that haven't been tuned in some time (usually over 2 years) and are ~10ç or more beyond standard pitch/A440. This involves going over every string an extra time (twice in total) to ensure the stability and longevity of the tuning. Key Cleaning ($25) - 15min Upright Full Cleaning ($75) - 30min - This involves vacuuming, cleaning of keys, cleaning of outer finish, adjusting of pedals, and any other basic adjustments that can be performed within the appointment. Grand Soundboard Cleaning ($100) - 1hr - Includes dusting of soundboard, vacuuming, wiping down of exterior, cleaning of keys.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to learn the story of each piano! How long has it belonged to you? Did you inherit it? How often do you play? Do you take lessons? When was the last time you had it tuned? Do you notice any strange sounds? (clicks, squeaks, etc.) What do you wish could be better?

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I've studied and continue to study under a 2nd generation senior technician/tuner of 20+ years.
