Tuning and voicing to keep the sound even so that a player can perform more nuanced music. Occasional repairs and exterior case touch-up are also part of regular maintenance. If you prefer not to do it yourself, key cleaning and piano dusting are other services available.

Piano Regulation

This process adjusts the responsiveness and the feel of the piano for peak performance. This should be followed up by a voicing service.

Piano Appraisals

An appraisal requires putting value on a piano, which can be important for insurance sales/purchase purposes. Mark's background in appraisals comes from specific appraisal training, and purchase and sales work in the Portland metro area for over 30 years.

Piano Voicing

Voicing is essentially changing and evening out the tone of the piano hammers. Tuning has to do with pitch, while voicing adjusts the brightness or softness of the individual notes.
