“How often should my piano be tuned?”
- Every piano manufacturer recommends getting your piano serviced 2 to 4 times each year.
All Day Concert Service (for the home as well)
You want more than just an in tune piano. It must be clean and it must play like a dream. During the course of the day, we will focus only on your piano; finessing the touch, voicing the hammers, polishing and leveling strings. Everything which can be done at the piano to ensure your instrument is in the best condition will be addressed. Includes Tuning Service. Takes Approximately 8 hours
Half Day Concert Service (For the home as well)
Tuning is only the basic service a piano needs. The touch and voice of a piano must be maintained to allow you or your musician to make quality music. This service is strongly recommended for those who wish to excel at their craft as well as families getting a jump-start when acquiring a used piano to ensure proper technique is learned early on. Takes Approximately 4 hours

Make your piano play better than it ever has with a specialist in piano action mechanics
A piano tuner adjusts over 200 strings, one at a time to bring a piano into tune (A440). Piano tuning requires minute adjustments to the tensions of each string of a piano to align the frequency intervals between keys so that the instrument sounds its best. Some of the finest tunings also include slight voicing adjustments to the hammers and action parts.
The organization that sets the highest standards for trustworthy information on piano tuning is the Piano Technicians Guild (PTG). C.J.’s Pianos follows the standards set by PTG and Chris passed (with flying colors!) all his Registered Piano Technician exams for certification as an RPT in June 2014.
