If you or anyone in your house is not feeling well or for any reason you feel there would be a risk, just let me know and I'll be happy to reschedule our appointment. I have no kind of penalty fee so don't worry about that. 


Here’s what I need you to do:

  • If the person greeting me at the door could WEAR A MASK that would be great . If you've been fully vaccinated please let me know & you can forgo wearing a mask. 
  • Have other people in another area of the house during the tuning.

Here’s what I will do:

  • I’ll be wearing a mask when I arrive. I've been fully vaccinated but I'm still wearing a mask when I arrive, just to be extra careful. If we've both been vaccinated, I'll probably take my mask off during the tuning. 
  • Make your piano sound fabulous!

Tuning & Repairing

pianos in Lincoln, NE &

the surrounding area

When you hire a piano tuner you expect your piano to sound better when they leave right? That, of course, is my main goal, but I try to do it in a friendly and efficient manner. I also can make repairs and adjustments that your piano needs. I suppose there are lots of other things I could tell you about what I do, but it's really pretty boring. The bottom line is that I like to make pianos sound better! I've been doing that since 1995 and I'd love to tune your piano for you!

1. Email: [email protected] 

This is the best way to contact me and set a day and time for the tuning. 

2. Text or Call: 531-333-2428

PLEASE NOTE: I screen ALL of my calls, which means I very rarely answer my phone. That may seem odd, but to keep on schedule I don't have time to answer calls during the day. So, if you do call please leave me a voicemail or send a text. Thanks!

My basic fee is $135.00 and the pitch correction fee is $55.00 (All fees include sales tax). What's a pitch correction? That means that the overall pitch of the piano is so low or high that one tuning will not be enough for the tuning to be reasonably stable so I'll do a rough tuning to get it basically on pitch and then go through again and fine tune it. There are some severe cases when even two tunings are not enough. If I have to return to tune the piano again I need to charge my regular tuning fee for that visit. Go to the "A440 Pitch Source" page to try and see if you need a pitch raise.

Please email, text or call for availability and more information.

(I reserve the right, however, to change my fee without notice.)
