Introduction: Hello - Thank you for visiting my profile. I’m a Steinway Factory Certified Technician as well as a member of the Piano Technicians Guild. I also hold certificates from the Reneer Academy and the American School of Piano Tuning. As a lifelong pianist, I listen to the individual voice that each instrument has. I take great pleasure in working on all kinds of pianos and treat each one as if it were my own. My greatest satisfaction is to have my clients enjoy their instrument to the fullest. Looking forward to hear from you. - Rafael Carrasquillo

Piano Tuning

Rafael showed intimate knowledge of our piano and did a great job tuning it. He also fixed a broken key at a totally reasonably price.

Piano Tuning

Rafael shows a lot of care for what he does. He not only tunes the piano but also checks other parts of the piano to make sure things are all working properly. You can count on him to restore the best sound your piano can produce.

Piano Tuning

This was our first time using Thumbtack to find someone to tune our piano, so we were a little apprehensive. The piano itself was a pre-owned gift so we didn’t have details regarding the year it was made or the last tuning. Upon inspection, Rafael was able to give us the year it was made and assess what needed fixing. After a pitch raise, tuning and slight adjustments for a few keys the piano sounds beautiful. It’s in better condition than when we received it. We will definitely be using Tuning Fork NYC’s services in the future and recommend Rafael to anyone who needs piano maintenance!

Piano Tuning

Rafael did a great job with a piano that hadn't been tuned for 10 years. Fast, friendly and efficient. I'll definitely be using him again.

Piano Tuning

On time, put in the work on a piano that hadn't been tuned in at least 10 years, and left behind a perfectly tuned instrument. He works quickly and professionally.

FAQs

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

    The $150 fee covers tuning, general cleaning and assessment. Other issues like sticking keys, squeaky pedals or loose hammers due to loose screws are also included in the price. Broken strings, serious key problems and action regulation are extra - once I assess the piano, I can give you a more accurate quote for this type of work.

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

    I’ve over 40 years of music performance experience, from recording and touring to composing and arranging music for musical groups, theater, film and tv. I believe that as a lifetime pianist and performer, those experiences give me a unique point of view when it comes to serving my clients musical needs.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I’ve always been intrigue by the mechanics of the piano ever since I started playing when I was four years old. Yet it wasn’t until I decided to take a break from performing that I seriously immerse myself in piano tuning and technology.
