- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
As you may know, there are 208 to 215 strings to tune in any piano. I charge a fair flat-rate fee of 150.00. To be competitive, will match any price out there. This includes, if applicable, pitch raises within 20 cents +- A440. Travel allowance to be applied if further than 15 miles.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Need 1 to 3 hrs blocked time for tuning to cover for pitch raise. Most tunings are done in an hour and a half to two hours. A quiet environment will be needed as all testing is done by ear.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Member of Master Piano Technicians of America American School of Piano Tuning, Morgan Hill California Piano Technician June 12, 1981 RP School of Piano Technology, Bend Oregan Apprenticeship with Walter Woitasek, RPT, Brockton Ma.
