Our main services
Regular tuning service
This is for modern upright and grand pianos that are tuned regularly.
This service is $220.
Catch up tuning service
If your piano has not been tuned for a ~3-20 years, has been moved, or has new strings, then it may need a catch up tuning service, (aka, a pitch raise), where it is tuned several times to bring out the best in your piano.
This service is for any upright or grand piano that is very far out of tune.
This service is $300.
Catch up plus
When pianos are tuned yearly, technicians often do minor additional adjustments to keep the piano in peak condition. If a piano is not tuned for 20-40 years, it may need regulation, and adjustments or repairs BEFORE it can be tuned.
This service is $410. Includes :
– our regular catch up tuning service =$300.
– up to $110 in adjustments.
Please note we only charge for the work done. If your piano did not need the additional work, we charge the lower rate. Additionally if the piano needs more repairs, this would be extra.
Classic piano tuning service
This is for upright and grand pianos that are over 40 years old.
Classic pianos often need more time to service compared to modern pianos.
This service is $300.
Email pre-service consulting
The only way to properly inspect a piano, is in person. However, If you have a piano that is having issues, or you have concerns about your piano, you can lift the lid of the piano, take some photos of the inside, and send them to us. This can assist us in providing you with the best advice and service.
This service is free for those within our service area.
Simply use the contact form, and tell us about your piano.
Here are some photos of pianos we have tuned or serviced.

Common questions that people ask:
Q: How much does it cost to tune a piano?
A: Most modern pianos cost $220 provided they are tuned serviced at least once every 1-2 years.
Older pianos, (often pianos over 40), can take longer to tune, and cost $300.
Pianos that are very far out of tune, either from having new strings, being moved, or not regularly maintained for ~3-20 years may need a catch up tuning service, (aka pitch raise), and this can cost $300.
Some pianos may need a follow up service, on average, this is $480 total over 2 visits. (excluding repairs)
Pianos not tuned for 20-40 years, on average need an additional $110 in regulation and adjustments. On average, maintenance and 2 tunings will cost $590 for modern pianos, $690 for older pianos.*
(this is an average price and may be higher or lower depending on what your piano needs)
Q: What is the average cost to tune and maintain a piano?
A: On average, most home users pay $220 to have their modern piano tuned once a year. Sometimes over a few years, pianos may need other services such as voicing and regulation. This depends on a lot of variables such as how often the piano is used, and the environment the piano is in. While there is no rule of thumb, a home piano used regularly may need voicing and light regulation adjustments every 5-10 years.
Pianos that are used heavily, (such as music schools), may need a higher level of maintenance.
Q: Do you do keytop repairs? How to get keytops replaced?
One of our specialties is repairing keytops that have come loose. If a keytop has come off, AND you have the existing keytop, then we can repair this during your piano tuning appointment – provided that you have informed us in advance so that we can allow enough time. If you have not given us notice in advance we may have to do it another time or a higher rate may apply to do a specialty visit)
In most cases, repairing 1-10 keytops that has come loose, can take around 1 hour, and we typically charge $110- $150 for this service.
If your keytops have come off, are broken or missing, YES we can replace them with brand new ones. In some cases, as the brand new ones will look brand new, and stand out against the old ones, (which may be discoloured), you may need a complete set of keytops which will need to be done in our workshop, and it can take around 2 weeks before they are completed, and reinstalled in your piano. Pricing for complete sets needs to be quoted in person.
Q: Maintaining a piano after 20-40 years
Q: How to pay? Is it cash, card or invoice?
A: Payment is expected at the end of the tuning appointment. While cash is always welcome, we carry a bank EFTPOS machine which makes payment easy and simple!
This way, you will get a bank receipt from our terminal as well as an email receipt from our company.
Schools, music teachers, and other music industry professionals can choose to have their registered Australian business name on the receipt if needed.
Q: Which piano removalist should I use?
A: It is highly recommended that you use a removalist that specialises in pianos rather then a general removalist company.
I highly recommend using Extreme Piano Removals, however there are other talented piano mover experts around.
