Tuning

When tuning a piano, the obvious objective is to precisely set the note of each string - there are approximately 240 strings on every piano.  A piano needs to be tuned approximately twice a year to maintain the proper tension of the strings.  If a has not been tuned in more than a year, it may require a pitch correction, even when "tuned to itself."  Most modern pianos are designed to be at the standard concert pitch of A-440hz, meaning most pianos will perform and sound their best at this pitch.

I also offer non-equal / historical temperaments in addition to equal temperament, the contemporary "standard tuning". If you aren't familiar with different tuning options, or want to try bringing new character to your playing, you might be pleasantly surprised by taking a step - great, or small, outside of equal temperament.

Maintenance

Maintenance is just as important as tuning.  Pianos need maintenance and adjustments of the many moving parts in order to function at their best.  In addition to tuning, I offer other services including regulation, voicing, cleaning, key recovering and re-bushing, action rebuilds and reconditioning, and more.  These services can be determined based on the wear and tear, and playability of each piano.
