Evan was fantastic. My piano needed some extra repairs along with tuning (it had been moved from Chicago). He took the time and care it needed to get it back to sounding amazing. Highly recommend.Jun 8, 2020Verified

Thank you Chelsea, it was nice to meet you all
Evan is a really great guy, he evaluated 3 pianos and found me the perfect one. He was very punctual, professional, honest and friendly. I’m so glad I hired him, I’ll definitely hire him for future tuning jobs as well 👍Apr 5, 2019VerifiedHouston Piano Tuning Service's reply
Thank you Tolga you have a fascinating story. I hope the piano brings your family lots of joy. Evan
I have an old piano that was given to me and it hadn’t been played for years. Evan explains everything in detail of what needs to be done. He even cleaned the strings. Most inportanley he did a great job tuning and bringing the piano up to pitch.Nov 19, 2018VerifiedHouston Piano Tuning Service's reply
It was a pleasure serving you Tim!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Standard tuning $150 Quote call-out $100, deducted from any work carried out. Pitch raising + $100 Adjustments calculated on hourly rate $50 /p hr All 'extra work' will be discussed before carrying out. Please note strings may break on older pianos not tuned for years. String replacement charge $70 uprights (includes all broken strings.), $? depending on grand brand / number of strings.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to see the piano, play it then work through, in order of priority, the most important changes and improvements. Tuning is like a haircut, after a time period it needs re-doing. It's ongoing. Whereas changes in the touch of the keyboard can also make a great difference in how you feel when you play the piano.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?3+ years of tuning pianos at Roberts Pianos Oxford. Tuning for Oxford University, Oxford Brookes University (whilst an alumni), tuning for recording studios, Roberts Pianos stock pianos and private clients as well as looking after our piano at home! Although, my father and brothers did that too.
