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.

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.

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.

Can a piano be too old to tune?

Many old pianos can be tuned. Consult a professional piano tuner to find out if they can tune your piano.

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.

Can a piano be tuned after 20 years?

If you haven’t tuned your piano in 20 years, you can still bring it to a tuner for them to assess and perform a pitch raise. 

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.

We were blown away with the knowledge and results. We have had several other tuners come out but will not look for another piano tuner as long as he is working.

Stephen was amazing. He revived my old piano and worked to get it repaired and in tune. He paid attention to all the little details - how the keys responded, the height of the damper pedals and even made the key cover easier to push back. The piano has never sounded as good. I would recommend him highly to anyone looking for a caring, thorough and professional piano tuner.

My piano was very out of tune, and once I contacted Francesco he immediately responded within a short period of time. The quality of the tuning was very well done. Would highly recommend to anyone that needs a professional tuner.

It was my first time meeting EJ and I love how he is so honest about what he think I should and shouldn't fix with my pianos. Both of my pianos are passed down to me from my relatives and friends. I personally don't know the history of the pianos well except I do know I need my pianos to be tuned for teaching. As a teacher, I felt like my budget was never at the right amount to afford piano tuners these days. With EJ's discounts, I felt very relieved to have someone like him eager to help people out. Thank you!

I contacted Aaron to tune my upright kawai which had not been tuned in years but is played on every day. Aaron was very professional and I could tell from the start that he is a highly skilled piano tuner and player. I mentioned a couple of things I noticed on my piano which needed particular attention and he knew exactly what to do and tuned the piano to perfection. The sound quality after the tuning was very clean and sharp yet with a very warm and deep sound. I knew my piano was out of tune, but only once he had tuned it that I realized how much it needed it. I now know who to contact for my yearly tune up and would highly recommend. Thank you Aaron for an amazing job !
