Piano Tuning

John showed up on time and did a great job tuning my piano. He was also able to fix the broken key. He answered all my questions.

John is very responsive, extremely knowledgeable, very accommodating and a true professional. He has tuned our piano twice in the past couple of years. We will always hire him for our piano needs.

Piano Tuning

John was very responsive on line when I requested his evaluation for a second hand piano and later on tuning at my home after I purchased it. He is very professional and also easy going. Every time I learned something new from him. Although I can’t tell if the sound is different after the tuning, it’s definitely easier to play. I would recommend John to anyone!

Piano Tuning

John was on time, a true master of tuning, and charged a fair price (which was the same as what was quoted up front). My old piano has never sounded so rich and vibrant.

FAQs

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

    In general, if the job is close by I charge less, and if far away I charge more. Tunings range,based on that, from $100 to $145. If a pitch raise is needed, I add $35 to the charge. I discount 10% for institutional work ( churches, schools, museums, etc), and for multiple pianos at the same location

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

    I try to determine their level of ability so that I can recommend services that will enhance their playing experience. For example, if a client is playing Brahms' Intermezzi, and the piano hasn't been regulated in 10 years, I will explain how the service of a regulation can make the playing of such difficult works much more easy and enjoyable. On the other hand, If the client is just beginning, I would suggest holding off on any such work until they see if their interest continues. Also, a beginner has no need to go out and purchase a Steinway 'B', or Yamaha G3. The response that those pianos offer won';t be noticed until they reach the level of critical phrasing. But a proficient pianist needs a responsive action - something a spinet piano cannot possibly provide.

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

    I have a master's degree in music composition and theory from the Hartt school of Music. All throughout my college education I held jobs as a pianist and worked also as an apprentice and journeyman to a piano technician. After graduating college I worked with Frank Hansen, the head of the piano technology department at the New England Conservatory of Music.
