FULL SERVICE APPOINTMENT $565*
This is much more than a piano tuning. It's the best option for clients who want to maintain their piano at peak performance or who are ready to catch up on some deferred maintenance of an older piano. Depending on your piano's unique needs, this may include tuning, tension adjustment, cleaning, regulation, voicing, lubrication, minor repairs, and much more.
When to choose a Full Service Appointment:
Your piano is used by an amateur or professional musician or a student who is at a moderately advanced or higher level and you want it maintained at peak performance.
You inherited or purchased a piano (or just started using your piano again after a few years) and it needs a shot or two in the arm to bring it up to date on deferred maintenance.
Though “Standard Service” appointments are only available on weekdays, Full Service appointments may be scheduled on some weekends for an additional $50. Weekend appointments have to be scheduled by email and may require a longer wait.
Standard Service $195-$245*

If it has been over 12 months since your piano was last tuned it may need a tension adjustment. This is basically an additional rough tuning (or two or three) to bring the strings closer to correct pitch so that a stable fine tuning is possible. The longer a piano has gone without tuning, the more likely a tension adjustment will be needed.
