Should you tip piano tuners?

Tipping piano tuners isn’t customary. If you had a great experience with a piano tuner, you can also show your appreciation by leaving a review on Thumbtack.

What happens if you don't tune a piano?

Tunings can help prevent damage and maintain your piano. When you tune your piano, you’re correcting its pitch. So if you go too long without tuning your piano, the pitch will likely drop — which can add tension to your piano’s structure, according to the Piano Technicians Guild. 

Is piano tuning hard?

Tuning a piano can be difficult if you haven’t done it before and don’t have the correct tools. For example, you’ll need a piano tuning lever, tips, electronic chromatic tuner and mutes. If you don’t have the tools or experience, you might be better off hiring a professional to tune your piano.

Is it worth tuning an old piano?

It may be worth tuning your old piano, especially if it’s highly valued or has sentimental value. Bring your piano to an expert piano tuner. They can assess your instrument and help you determine if it can be restored.

Why do my piano keys squeak?

If your piano keys are squeaking, it may be because something is stuck between the keys. Or, your piano may be dirty. You may be able to fix your keys. If not, hire a professional to take a look at the problem and perform the repairs.

How often should you tune a piano?

Some experts recommend tuning your piano at least two or four times a year, according to the Piano Technicians Guild. You should always see what the manufacturer recommends for your specific piano. And you should schedule additional tunings as needed. 

How long does piano tuning take?

Tuning your piano might take a few hours or less. Before your appointment, ask your piano tuner how long the process will take.

The best piano tuner anyone could ask for - it’s in the blood. Thank you, Dan.
Gary C.
Dan was a very personable piano tuner. It was a pleasure to meet him. And my piano sounds the best it has ever sounded! Thank you.
Bennett G.
Stop searching for a piano tuner. And just call Dan. And then plan to stick around and watch a master at his craft. It's a real treat. We'll be calling Dan for anything piano related from now on.

Elton was wonderful with our aged spinet piano. He spent all the time needed to get it playing beautifully again. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a piano tuner who will do what it takes to bring your piano back into playability. He was punctual, and knowledgeable. Well done, Elton!

Exceptional piano tuner. Hands down the most congenial and professional. Uses a tuning app for precise tuning. Took his time. Polished and vacuumed. Couldn’t ask for a better value. Highly recommend!

Dan was a pleasure to have at my home. He was very personable and professional. It's incredible the amount of knowledge he has about the piano. Went above and beyond what I expected. I definitely have found my piano tuner going forward. Would very much recommend.
Walker B.
Fantastic job! I came across Dan on a random internet search for a piano tuner. So glad we found him! He was very polite and easy to work with over Thumbtack, and we quickly set up a date to tune. When he came out, he was friendly, efficient, and had my wife and I laughing and chatting the whole time. Our piano now sounds fantastic, and he stands behind his work. He is passionate about his job, with 3 generations of experience behind him. Would recommend to anyone! Oh, and be sure to ask him about the Haunted Piano! :)
