Regular Piano Tuning -- $125
Tuning a piano that is not more than 5 to 10 cents* out of tune. If it has been 2+ years since you've had your piano tuned, you most likely will require a pitch raise. Ideally, you should have your piano tuned every 6 months and definitely not less than every 2 years. Temperature and humidity changes are hard on pianos. They liked to be tuned, and they like to be played! *A cent is unit of measure for musical intervals that divide an octave into 12 semitones of 100 cents each. I can tell you over the phone if you need a regular tuning or a pitch raise.

Pitch Raise -- $180
If your piano is more than a 5 to 10 cents* out of tune, it may require a pitch raise due to instability of the piano. Instability occurs when pianos are not tuned on a regular basis. If you need a pitch raise, I will tune your piano twice in one sitting and then establish a schedule of regular tunings. If your piano is 10 to 25 cents flat, it most likely will need tuning once again in 2 months; then once every 6 months. If your piano is 25 cents flat or more should be tuned again in 2 to 4 weeks; then tuned again in 3 months; and then every 6 months. *A cent is unit of measure for musical intervals that divide an octave into 12 semitones of 100 cents each. I can tell you over the phone if you need a regular tuning or a pitch raise.
