- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
For an upright piano, I usually charge $100. This covers my maintenance check, full evaluation of your piano and of course, the tuning. For baby grands I charge $125. If your piano needs a pitch raise, I normally charge an extra $40 for this service. This is because your piano is a little further out of tune than normal (i.e. not being tuned for an extended period of time) and needs a little extra time to get it just right!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
When I meet a new piano a have never tuned before, the first thing I do is give a full evaluation of the piano. I check to see if there is anything that can compromise the integrity of your piano. (i.e. a cracked soundboard, broken strings or keys...) I also will check for the "health" of your hammers and see if the felt is worn past it's life and may need attention. And finally, I pull all covers off your piano and walk you through a routine maintenance of your piano that will keep it lasting a lifetime!
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
Back in 2000 I started working at Alamo Music Center as a piano sales person. Over those years I became the piano sales manager and even started learning the technical side of the piano. Going through months of training and even mentoring under a very seasoned piano tuner/technician. After leaving Alamo Music Center in 2009, I still love working with pianos and look forward to working on yours!
