Piano tuning: artistic and scientific


Piano Tuning is an art that the technician possesses to bring a piano to it’s beautiful sounding tone and musical moods and colors to the pianist.  The generating of a tone in the piano is achieved by scientifically designed principles of string vibration and wood characteristics that transfer the vibrations to the human ear.

A well designed piano consists of many different factors that are found in the qualities of wood and felt.  Tone quality is directly dependent on quality of materials and workmanship in building a truly special product of musical quality.

Awesome Piano Tuner & Technician


Are you looking for an awesome sounding piano? Are you looking for an awesome playing musician? That piano could already be in your home; it just hasn’t been tuned. You’re an awesome musician; but your piano might be hiding how you really sound – AWESOME!

A piano that has not been tuned for a year or more may sound okay to you; but when it is finally tuned again, that’s when you realize what you’ve been missing; MUSIC. Piano music that is crystal clear and pleasant to the ears. Trained ears or not, most people cannot tell when a piano needs tuning; but most people can tell that it sounds better after the tuning.

Music plays an important role in many peoples’ lives. A piano that sounds good and plays well is what makes music that much more enjoyable. Most people agree that nothing can compare to the sound of the piano in making music.

My business is in the making of any piano to sound and play its’ best.
That’s why I recommend that every piano receives at least one tuning each year; so that music is always an inspiration to the one practicing the piano.

My current customers all enjoy the benefits of my services. They receive professional and concert quality tuning at a price lower than most. Appointments are catered to their schedules and are on time.

My experience with pianos of over 35 years provides expertise in many repair needs in pianos to include the following:

1. Action regulation – a term meaning simply the adjusting of all 88 notes to play at optimal performance to touch response and tone.

2. Restringing bass notes – replacing old and dead sounding strings with new ones

3. repairing or replacing of old, broken or worn out piano parts

4. replacing old keytops with new ones

5. Cleaning out the piano inside and out

6. repair or inspection evaluations for potential buyers or owners

If your piano is in Pierce County, King County, Thurston County, or Kitsap County, the tuning rate is the same. I accept cash, check or credit card for payment. When you schedule an appointment, I will be on time; or I will call to notify you of any changes to the schedule due to traffic or other delays.

I look forward to meeting you and earning your business.

Has it been a year since your Last Piano Tuning?

The reason pianos go out of tune is because it is affected by temperature and environment settings in the home.  The longer you leave the piano out of tune the more the piano construction and different components of the piano change and adjust to the wrong configuration of the wood.  Keeping the piano in tune keeps the piano in good shape and maximizes its ability to sound better.  In the long run the piano will sound better and there will be less need for replacing strings and it will stay in tune longer when you keep it tuned at least once per year versus when you wait years apart.

This is a blog about pianos.  I am located near Spanaway / Graham WA and work in Bellevue and have many piano friends in the Port Orchard region.  As a result, I am able to serve the entire Puget Sound area pretty effectively.  I am starting  this blog  for the first time and will be posting interesting posts about my experiences in the piano business.  Questions and comments about your piano experience will be welcome soon.  The intention of posting in this blog is for sharing with others my passion and appreciation for pianos and the people who play them.
