Piano Tuning & Maintenance


Would you like experience the same tuning expertise and precision enjoyed by some of Toronto’s most legendary musicians, concert halls and recording studios? Over the years we’ve seen and tuned them all – and that same attention to detail can be yours starting with our 1½ hour basic tuning option, which includes a minor pitch raise and pedal adjustment (if necessary of course), to more thorough and complete piano maintenance packages. Continue reading below for more details on our tuning practices and service.

With Ivories.ca, every tuning begins with a thorough inspection of the piano’s mechanical and structural parts. If we find the instrument is in such a condition that it will not retain a tuning, we will not tune it – it’s as simple as that. We do not believe in gouging customers out of their hard earned money by tuning an instrument we know will be once again useless to its owner days, if not hours after we leave. In such instances, we will provide customers with a free written estimate regarding repair work that will render their piano playable once again.

At other times a simple basic tuning may not be enough to get the piano back up to speed. Where such a more time consuming (and thus slightly more expensive) pitch-raise(overstretch) tuning is required, the customer will be notified before work commences so that there are no surprises down the road.

In addition to piano tuning, we can also provide you with voicing and regulation work for an additional fee, as well as complete piano maintenance packages to ensure your instrument sounds and plays like new for years to come.

Ivories.ca gladly services the residents of Richmond Hill, Thornhill, Vaughan, Woodbridge and Markham at no extra charge. Tuning rates start at $130 (*piano must be in fair/tunable condition). Emergency same day service is available for a minimal extra fee (subject to availability).
