Thanks for your request. My piano tuning/service appointments are scheduled for up to 2 full hours in your home and I charge $225- This allows me time to tune the piano twice for best stability and/or fix some small problems/repairs or make adjustments to the action, pedals, etc. as needed. If more time is needed, all work is based on $125- for the first hour and $100- for subsequent hours.

My associate/apprentice, Robin Whitehouse has been working with me for 8 years and at this point I consider us equal as piano technicians. You get the same full 2 hour service for $185- This is the better option for pianos that you want to have sound much better but might have not been tuned for a few years. We may prefer to choose which of us comes out, depending on circumstances.

Please note that we do NOT charge extra for pitch raising or pitch correction. IT IS INCLUDED IN OUR PRICE. Many tuners have an additional charge of $50-75 on top of their basic tuning cost to bring your piano up to pitch.

Also note that I do not charge for travel time even though I travel throughout the San Francisco and Monterey Bay Area. Robin may have a small travel fee. We do like to schedule up to 3 clients in a geographic area and are typically booked about 2-4 weeks in advance so please be patient and help us plan ahead.

Thanks again,

Jeffrey Potter & Robin Whitehouse
