Maine Piano Tuning Price List

The Piano tuning and repair industry is a very niche based industry. However, we try to keep prices affordable for everyone. If you keep your piano tuned then prices will be more affordable. However, if it has been several years since your piano has been tuned then it may require more work in order to get it pitched correctly.

Travel: As sometimes travel is required more in the state of Maine. I do charge for traveling long distances. However, my traveling fees are very reasonable. I will do everything possible to make traveling expenses reasonable for both of us. The cities I do piano repair in includes Waterville, Augusta, Bangor and Portland.
