Quality Piano Service - Judith Palmer
Judith was great, we found a time that worked for her to come to the house and she was very professional.Nov 17, 2017Verified
I tried another company 1st who was a little cheaper...they never even showed up. Quality was on time. They gave an accurate assessment of state and possibilities of tuning. Excellent job, near pitch perfect on a really out of tune upright. Extremely happy and would recommend with confidence. Thank you Quality Piano Service.Jan 3, 2017Verified

Q & A
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My current fee for tuning is $120, and this is the usual amount charged for pianos that are serviced every 6 months or more frequently. However, many factors determin the fee I charge once I see the piano ( age, condition, over-all pitch/tension on the instrument ) For a new customer, I usually quote a range of $100-$150. On an initial service call, I can get alot done for the piano within that price range. A full list of fees can be found on my website: www.qualitypianoservice.net
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I attend seminars, conventions and worshops offered through the Piano Technician's Guild where experts in piano technology teach a wide range of topics. Even after working nearly 4 decades as a piano technician, I always come away with something new and valuable. Occasionally I will prepare a presentation for other piano technicians and I find I learn even more by teaching. I know I am very fortunate to love my work. It brings great satisfaction to help people fall in love with their pianos again.
- What types of customers have you worked with?The most common service I provide is tuning and consultation with my clients about the condition of their piano. I also may perform a small repair or adjustment or minor voicing at no additional cost. Sometimes getting rid of a squeaking pedal or an annoying buzz can seem like a more dramatic improvement than the tuning. I want my customer to notice the difference the next time they sit down to play the piano.
