A typical tuning call includes minor repair, adjustments, and voicing at no additional charge. Basic inspection and consultation are also part of what we provide. Artistic Piano firmly believes in tuning to the proper pitch of A440, as this level of tension is what the instrument was engineered for and thus benefits the piano. Playing a piano tuned to standard international pitch also aids perception of relative pitch and ear training, and thus benefits the player. It is our belief that a standard tuning should be extremely thorough and produce superior stability even if it takes a little bit longer. A typical tuning service usually lasts one and a half to two hours.
