-A portion of all proceeds is donated to charity- TUNING & SEASONAL SERVICE - $225 (Recommend for piano last serviced 2-10 Years Ago) Many piano owners have never experienced their piano at its best. The Tuning and Seasonal Service appointment helps you get the most out of your piano, so you can enjoy making music. This 2-hour appointment includes tuning, as well as work to the action and hammers to make your piano enjoyable to play. What's Included: • Bringing the piano up to Concert Pitch (Sometimes called Pitch-Raising or Double Tuning) • Fine Tuning • Light Cleaning • Fix Sticking Keys and Reduce Friction in the Action • Touch-up Voicing (to improve the piano's tone) • Touch-up Regulation (to make the piano easier to play) BASIC TUNING SERVICE - $145 (Recommended for pianos serviced in the last year) If your piano has been regularly maintained and serviced within the last 6 months, then the Basic Tuning Service might be the best choice for you. If it has been more than six months since the last service, or if your piano is in disrepair, I recommend scheduling one of the Tuning & Seasonal Service appointments that are tailored to different levels of use. • Fine Tuning (1 Hour) • Additional Charge for Extra Services Needed PIANO OVERHAUL SERVICE - $550 (Recommended for pianos serviced 10+ years ago) If your piano hasn't been serviced in a decade or more, it will need a bit more than just a tuning to get it back in shape. After many, many years without servicing not only will the piano be very out of tune, but it will also develop many other issues within the piano that needs to be addressed, such as very worn out hammers, the action shifting out of alignment, and lots of gunk and debris build-up inside the piano. Oftentimes, Facebook or Craigslist "Free" pianos fall into this category and require several tuning passes, along with a deep cleaning, regulation, and voicing of the piano. What's Included: • Multiple tuning passes to bring the piano up to pitch • Fine-tuning • Deep cleaning of the piano including vacuuming and polishing the strings • Fixing sticking and broken keys • Sanding down the piano hammers to eliminate grooving and remove rotted felt • Regulating the piano action to make it play smoothly and controllably -$30 Discount on Tuning & Seasonal Service Appointments for Music Teachers -Additional Charge for Parking/Tolls if required (I try to find street parking if at all possible) -Same day cancelations are charged at the full appointment rate. If you need to reschedule or cancel, please let me know in advance!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Once you've reached out to me, the first step is to find out which appointment is best for you. I tailor my Tuning & Seasonal Service appointments to each client's individual needs as well as how their piano is used. For example, a piano that’s used for recordings will have different needs than a piano that’s used casually at home. Once we’ve found the best service for you, the next step is to schedule the appointment. I’ll typically ask what days of the week are best for you, and then look at my schedule and send some potential times that might work for both of us. I also have an online scheduler on my website as well. Once your appointment time has been set, the last step is for me to come and service your piano, and then you can enjoy it as never before!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
As both a lifelong musician (I've been playing piano since 7 and I also perform professionally as a classical vocalist)and a Master Piano Technician, my expertise helps fellow pianists get the most out of their instruments. In addition to my training through the Piano Technicians Academy and Master Piano Technicians of America, I also studied Vocal Performance and Composition at California Institute of the Arts, Willamette University, and was recognized as a California Arts Scholar. I began to play piano at the age of seven and loved it since day one. Growing up, my parents actually had to ban me from the piano bench before school so we would get to class on time! Every time my parents would have a piano tuner over to service our Everett piano, I would watch intently and try to figure out what was going on. I've always loved figuring out how things worked, so there was a strong natural draw to piano technology. Throughout my high school days, I studied piano tuning and repair before attending and being certified through the Piano Technicians Academy. I founded LeGrand Piano Services in 2012 and have faithfully served the community ever since. I believe that music is an essential part of life and that the work I do helps to keep the music alive.
