Piano Tuning Cost


Initial Tuning/New Customer – $165

If it has been over a year since your last tuning your piano is going to need extra attention and this first service costs a little more.  I’ll check everything inside and out, stabilize the pitch, and fix basic things like sticking keys and squeaky pedals.  It’s all included and there are no hidden fees or charges!  I will also do a complete inspection and provide you with an online custom piano condition report.  After this first tuning, I will maintain your piano every 6 months or once per year for the standard tuning fee.  Save $10 and book online right now!

Stability in your piano happens over time with consistent tunings.  I recommend you book your standard 6 month tuning appointment while I am in your home!

What if there are major problems with your piano?
If I find major problems that can not be fixed within the initial appointment, I will let you know right away and discuss your options with you.

Standard Tuning Fee = $125

Most piano players prefer to have their piano tuned every 6 months and this is the recommended interval for most home use pianos.  Others choose to have their piano tuned once each year.  The choice is yours but the most important thing is that you have your trusted piano technician service piano on a regular schedule!  I make it quick and easy for you to prebook your next appointment while I am in your home and I offer several reminders so you don’t forget your upcoming appointments.  You may also choose to have a simple yearly or 6 month reminder sent to your home to keep you on track for your next tuning

Estimates  – $125

Having problems with your piano?  In most cases, I suggest booking an initial tuning appointment so I can tune and repair your piano at the same time.  It is the most cost and time efficient way to get your piano playing again!  If you suspect there are larger problems or you are looking for extensive repairs or restoration of your piano, you may request an estimate appointment.  I will visit your piano and give you a detailed assessment and estimate to tune, repair and get your piano playing perfectly again.  If you decide to do the work that day or within a specified time, the estimate fee can be applied to the work to be done.

Pre-Purchase Inspections –  $125 – Pay for Inspection Now

When purchasing a used piano from a private individual, I highly recommended a pre-purchase inspection PRIOR to the purchase.  Also remember that there is no such thing as a “free” piano and I can help you make a wise decision and educate you along the way.  If repairs are needed and you find them before the purchase, you can often use this to get a better deal on the piano.  All pre-purchase inspections must be prepaid by credit card over the phone.  If you purchase the piano and hire me to tune it within 30 days, you will receive $25 off your first tuning.  To order a pre-purchase inspection please call 937-416-5166 or submit the information through the online form.
