Introduction: -- Experience Your Piano as Never Before -- Many piano owners have never experienced their piano at its best. My expert service helps you get the most out of your piano, so you can enjoy making music. As the owner and operator of LeGrand Piano, I’d be happy to take care of your piano and treat it as my own. Although piano tuning is the most recognizable part of my profession, there’s a LOT more that goes into a properly maintained piano than just tuning. The touch of the keys, the tone of the piano, and the performance of the action all degrade over time just like the tuning. It’s important to address these issues as well when the piano is serviced, which is why I offer my Tuning & Seasonal Service appointments that are specifically designed to take care of these issues so you can enjoy your piano at its best. My Signature service goes above and beyond what many others offer in their standard tuning appointments. But don’t take my word for it, as a Thumbtack Top Pro, I am highly rated for value, punctuality, and professionalism by my clients. I am a certified piano technician through the Piano Technicians Academy, a member of Master Piano Technicians of America, Apex Piano Technicians, and Piano Technicians International, and also a professional musician with ChoralArts Philadelphia. You can rest assured that I am the expert to get your piano in its best shape! -A portion of all proceeds is donated to charity supporting the developing world -

Piano Tuning

I've hired a lot of people over the years for a lot of jobs (though only one other time for piano tuning - when I was seven, with my mother handling the communications & payments hah) and Ryan from LeGrand Piano Services was one of the friendliest, kindest, most professional (and most punctual - which counts for a LOT !) people I've ever asked into my home to help with anything. I usually dread the experience, for whatever reason, but he made it beyond easy - even our puppy loved him! With the pandemic happening, company - any kind of company - is extremely scarce (uncommon for me, and my wife, both) so when you ~need~ to hire someone for some home-based job, you're really, really hoping it's someone worth spending however much time of your day around - I guess after 6+ months spent indoors, with trips out kept to below a bare minimum - it takes on a bit more expectation & all, relevance, but even during better days it would make a big difference, so i wanted to start off by saying as much! Beyond the "social" aspect, so to speak, Ryan was extremely professional, an absolute 'pro' at the job he does, and it was very interesting to watch him (and hear!) him work. I have perfect pitch & the piano was such a joy to play when he was done that I almost could no stop, physically! He also fixed up many other minor issues without charging a cent above the (stated prior to even locking a date down for booking) price, answered all of my questions, and gave a ton of great advice for upkeep, minor changes in positioning & the room, even a simple DIY "fix" (or "change" more like) I could make if I wanted, in order to better ensure something else with the piano - and so on, so on - i could keep up like this for a while, probably. THAT'S the sign of a job well done (REALLY well done) - maybe I'm rambling too much, at this point, so I'll cut myself off, but I want to say thanks again to Ryan & Legrand Piano Services and if you're looking for your instrument tuned in the area, (or any of the other services provided) I couldn't recommend anyone more highly. And (god forbid, but just in case) if you're reading this during our ongoing (endlessly ongoing) time of coronavirus pandemic (I say all of this without any editorializing, as hard as it is, as it wouldn't do anyone any good to start down that road in a piano-services-review) all recommended & required precautions were taken/ followed. Being high risk (should I get the virus, it would get 'ugly', all the many doctors & nurses in my life have warned me) I particularly look for that & appreciate it when it's the case, & thus want to add a note at the end here if anyone else is wondering similarly. Ok, that's it, if you read this all, Kudos! for anyone else - TL:DR - Ryan & LeGrand Piano Movers were absolutely fantastic, both in their top-notch work & amicable professionalism. I couldn't recommend more highly should you need tuning (or other services provided), our piano has never sounded better & in the days & weeks since, I've been playing it more than 10x as much! Thanks !

Piano Tuning

He rescued our Piano's improper tuning and annoying sound (by a piano store) and brought it back to its original sweet sound. He tuned it properly and we discussed why it had been wrong.

Ryan did an outstanding job with my piano. I have a Wurlitzer studio piano that I got from a friend, but it was quite out of tuned and needed a lot of attention. He spent several hours and the difference is night and day. It's an instrument again and I love it! Thank you!

Piano Tuning

Ryan was incredibly kind, friendly, and professional today while he visited my home and tuned my piano! He tuned my instrument extremely well and I could tell that he put much care and precision into his work. I am so grateful to have found his service and will definitely be calling him again when the time comes for another piano tuning. I would highly recommend his work!

Piano Tuning

Ryan was very nice and professional. Although he couldn't fix my piano, he was very honest. Its a super old piano and he showed me specifically where the issues were. He charged me half price, which In think was reasonable. Would deifinrletly recommend.

FAQs

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

    -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.
