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.

Saint arrived on time, engaged with the piano, and tuned it expertly. I'm a professional singer and voice teacher, and have experienced many piano tuners over the years. Saint was solid, and my piano sounds great.

Scot was a total professional. He is extremely communicative. He tuned my piano that had not been tuned for a decade plus. It sounds amazing. He is personable, helpful and reliable. I plan on keeping him as my piano tuner for as long as I have piano.

Scott did a great job with our piano that hasn't seen a tuner in over 15 year. He took the time to make sure that it was done well. Thank You again, Scott!!

I learned so much about my piano from scott. The experience was much more than I bargained for. Scott Townley is the best. I will recommend him to anyone in need of a piano tuner. I should have had to pay extra for the education I received from Scott.

Wonderful courteous piano tuner. Did a great job. The one less star was because of confusing communication from the business about trying to reschedule and talking about an added fee. Everything worked out fine.
