We tune and maintain all styles of piano. 

How often does your piano need tuning?

Pianos should be tuned every six months, because they gently drift out of tune as time goes by. The frames can move, strings can stretch, and so on. These changes need compensating.

In cold weather when the heating is on, your house "dries out", the humidity drops, and therefore the tuning changes. In the warmer weather of summer, the heating is off and humidity increases; so the tuning changes again. This happens because the piano sound board expands and contracts with changing humidity.

If you leave it too long, the pitch will fall, and you may then need two tunings to bring it back to the correct pitch.

Looking after your Piano - in detail

We like to give our tuning work plenty of care, with attention to detail. After all, your piano is a big investment, and needs to be looked after.
When we tune your piano, we also check the mechanical state to see if it needs attention in other areas. We are always happy to discuss any problems that may arise, and because of our teaching work, we can explain things so that you can understand easily.


Tools of the trade...

Please Do Not Tune It Yourself !

Please do not try to tune your own piano unless you are trained and qualified to do so.
Tuning is a delicate and precise process. Some people have put their pianos seriously out-of-tune by trying to save costs, and sometimes have caused expensive damage.

We also do the following:

  • Repairs
  • Reconditioning
  • Polish touch-up
  • Full re-polishing
