    I'm so glad to have met Jeff. He's punctual, polite, and very professional. Since my piano hadn't been tuned for several years, Jeff explained that he would do a solid "maintenance" tuning and work with my budget. Jeff was a pleasure to talk to during his visit -- I learned a lot about tuning basics -- and he gave me some extra time just to ensure I was satisfied with the end result. I am trying to get back into playing piano (haven't applied myself since lessons as a kid) - and Jeff recommended a local jazz piano teacher. I'm absolutely thrilled to take the next step. I'll also be hiring Jeff @ In Tune Piano Services again for my next tune-up.

    Super knowledgable and thorough. Went the extra mile to get a key for our piano when we discovered it was locked and didn't have a key. Mindful of doing a great job but working within our budget. Highly recommend!

    Jeff was very professional, and it was evident that he's been doing this for a very long time. I felt very comfortable with him, and in fact I've already booked a follow up tuning with him in nine months. I would definitely recommend Jeff as knowledgeable, professional and experienced.

    Jeff was great! Got an older piano back to wonderful playing condition. As it hadn't been tuned in a long time, he didn't push it too hard. Unstuck keys, and a wonderful sound now. Definitely will use him for regular tuning.

    Jeff tuned my piano which hadn't been tuned for 10 years. The sound went from tinny to riche also fixed many sticking and slow keys as well as my pedals. It took about 3 hrs. He has an excellent ear. Im thrilled with the results and will call him in a month or so for follow up

    Jeff is an expert. He has tuned our paino 4 times in the last 2 years. He is always on time, and has gone out of his way to keep it sounding wonderful.
  • Colin M. Sep 24, 2014
    Not necessarily the cheapest up front, but the tuning holds so it is cheaper in the long run and sounds better too.
  • Greg C. Jun 5, 2014
    Jeff is a fine piano tuner and repairman. He has done a great job tuning, voicing and generally tweaking my Yamaha U1 into top condition. Jeff is consistently on-time, very affordable, friendly and happy to explain his recommendations and work.

    Jeff is absolutely one of the most professional and courteous piano tuner/appraisers I have met. He called me the night before my appointment as a much needed courtesy. He showed up on time, was polite, even with my toddler underfoot. He tuned our piano that had not been tuned in over 10 years and made it sound wonderful. He also took the time to talk directly to my State Farm insurance agent so that my insurance appraisal (another service he offers) met the requirements of my carrier. Most importantly, there were no hidden fees, I paid what he said it would cost when he initially made the appointment. I also found his price was very reasonable for his level of expertise and quality of his work. Thank you Jeff, see you at the end of the year for another tune!

Q&A

What types of customers have you worked with?
I tune and repair many pianos that have not been serviced for many years and need piano to be brought up to its full potential. I offer purchase consultations to consumers who are looking to purchase a used piano at a store or private seller. I appraise many pianos for insurance purposes or a client that is selling piano on their own.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Hire someone that has many years of experience and can provide references. Ask any questions you may have about tuning and repairing your piano, this will give you a better idea of what kind of person your hiring. If you have a particular time that's more convenient for you for service let me know, since I want to accommodate my client.
