The second component of our service involves optimizing your piano's mechanical operation. Each mechanical component of your instrument needs to be periodically adjusted, and sometimes repaired, to ensure optimal functioning. The ultimate aim of the piano technician is to make sure your piano is a “transparent vehicle for musical expression" – meaning there are no malfunctioning mechanics or distracting sensations when your fingers contact the keys. Nothing should get in the way of you creating and enjoying music!
Our work on your piano's touch falls into two primary categories :
We can make targeted adjustments and repairs on an as needed basis. Rates for repairs depend on the specific situation, but our technicians have hourly rates that serve as a basic guideline. If any necessary repairs come up during your appointment we'll review them with you first.
In some cases, regulation - complete adjustment of the piano's mechanisms - may be necessary or desirable. Contact us to discuss your needs and budget, and we'll work together to develop the perfect approach for your piano.
