Piano Tuning Services

Our aim and commitment is to provide, a Great Value and Quality Piano Tuning Services to you.  Maximising the performance of your piano.

Standard Piano tuning

Where possible, We will tune your piano to concert pitch (A440).  In some cases your piano will not be able to be tuned to concert pitch. This is due to the age and wear of the components in the piano.  Therefore, a lower pitch may be need to be set in order to achieve a level of tuning stability.  We call this relative pitch.

Most Manufactures, recommend, pianos be tuned at 6 or 12 month intervals.  More frequent tuning cycles is particularly important for new pianos, as the strings may be still settling.  We find that in most home situations, once every 12 months will suffice most peoples needs.  We do recommend you tune your piano more frequently, for pianos with a heavy work load. This is particularly important for music students, schools and institutions. 

A Standard Piano Tuning service takes approximately 1.5 hours to complete.
