As a piano technician, I can tune, regulate, voice your piano, and make needed repairs.
Individual situations will vary, but during a tuning appointment, I will generally perform the following:
Assess the condition of your piano
Ask about any concerns with the instruments condition or operation
Recommend any adjustments or repairs that may be required before tuning
Tune each of the strings to the proper pitch standard
Recommend possible future work based on the condition of your piano
The actual tuning may take around two hours, but might be longer depending on how out of tune the piano is, its general condition, and the environment where it is located.
I also track when your piano was last tuned, and remind you, based on the pianos situation and use, of when your next tuning is needed.
By having me see your piano on a regular basis, I can help you avoid situations that may result in unnecessary expenses.
