We appreciate your patience in scheduling your personalized service. Many of our clients have contracted other "tuners" from online sources like craigslist and online bidding websites, and have inadvertently hired amateurs with no real knowledge of how to properly tune a piano. Trust us, it is definitely worth the small wait to get your piano in shape. Don't go with the tuner who is available tomorrow. There's a reason why that's the case!



Affordable

While many technicians start at $150 a visit, our services start at just $99 for a basic tuning. All of our prices are transparent on this site, so no need to worry about the ever-present chance of “upselling” or “extra charge to do that” line. Simple, honest, fair, real prices – that’s why we are #1 in DFW.

Our Services


(Time for services indicate approximate time for arrival, service, and completion. Prices do not include applicable taxes.)

This service is ideal if your piano has been tuned in the last 6-12 months and hasn’t dropped more than 10 cents below pitch (A=440). This service can also be used if you simply want a piano in tune with itself, or are dealing with a piano 40 years or older.

This service is ideal if your piano hasn’t been tuned in the last 6-12 months and hasn’t dropped more than 10 cents below pitch (A=440) around the mid-range of the piano. This service brings the most vulnerable sections of the piano (bass and upper treble) up to pitch so that a fine tuning can occur, leaving the piano perfectly in tune with itself.

If a piano has gone without tuning for an extended period, its pitch may have dropped far below A- 440. This means that each of its approximately 220 strings needs to be tightened considerably, adding tremendous additional tension to the piano’s structure.

The problem is that as each string is tightened, the additional load causes the pitch of previously adjusted strings to change. Thus it is impossible to make a substantial change in pitch and end up with a fine, accurate tuning in one step. Instead, a process called “pitch raising” must first be done, in which all strings are raised to their correct average tension levels. (Likewise, when a piano’s pitch is higher than standard, a pitch lowering procedure must be done to reduce string tensions to approximately correct levels.)

Only then can the piano be accurately tuned. In other words, accurate tuning is only possible when all strings are so close to their proper tension that only small further changes are needed during tuning.

The ultimate tuneup! Full pitch raise, regulation, minor repairs, cleaning, voicing – Recommended every 3-5 years. Essentially, this makes your piano play and sound like new again. Normal playing conditions take a toll on a piano. This service takes into consideration all of the above elements and restores the piano’s original sound, feel, and beauty.

We understand that your piano is the investment of a lifetime.

For that reason, you should always use only professional piano movers;

those who specialize in moving pianos and organs exclusively.

The purpose of piano appraisal is to determine a fair price for a piano. Fair market value should not be confused with a piano’s worth as a musical instrument, or even it’s actual quality. While it is true that a better piano in better condition will have a higher market value compared to the same model built the same year but in poor condition, basic economic forces will ultimately determine a piano’s reasonable selling price.

An antique piano in near-original condition may be a finer musical instrument than a brand-new one, but its market value may be only a fraction of the price of a new piano.

Just like anything, pianos can run into mechanical issues, often at the worst possible time. For $85 (hourly), minor repair work can be completed and leave your piano in excellent playing condition. These repairs typically include sticky keys, pedal issues, minor regulations, etc. Most minor services can be done within the hour window.

Price does not include cost of parts (if applicable).

Piano Tuning (tuned within 6-12 months,
or just to be tuned to itself)

This service is ideal if your piano has been tuned in the last 6-12 months and hasn’t dropped more than 10 cents below pitch (A=440). This service can also be used if you simply want a piano in tune with itself, or are dealing with a piano 40 years or older.

Extended Piano Tuning
(For most new clients)

This service is ideal if your piano hasn’t been tuned in the last 6-12 months and hasn’t dropped more than 10 cents below pitch (A=440) around the mid-range of the piano. This service brings the most vulnerable sections of the piano (bass and upper treble) up to pitch so that a fine tuning can occur, leaving the piano perfectly in tune with itself.

Piano Tuning w/ Pitch Raise
(Not tuned over 2 years or more,
max 30% adjustment)

If a piano has gone without tuning for an extended period, its pitch may have dropped far below A- 440. This means that each of its approximately 220 strings needs to be tightened considerably, adding tremendous additional tension to the piano’s structure.

The problem is that as each string is tightened, the additional load causes the pitch of previously adjusted strings to change. Thus it is impossible to make a substantial change in pitch and end up with a fine, accurate tuning in one step. Instead, a process called “pitch raising” must first be done, in which all strings are raised to their correct average tension levels.

Only then can the piano be accurately tuned. In other words, accurate tuning is only possible when all strings are so close to their proper tension that only small further changes are needed during tuning.

Half Day Service
(3-5 year service)

The ultimate tuneup! Full pitch raise, regulation, minor repairs, cleaning, voicing – Recommended every 3-5 years. Essentially, this makes your piano play and sound like new again.

Trust Us! They do!

  • Thomas arrived on time, as promised, and did a wonderful job. Professional, knowledgeable, and very open to point out some minor issues with the piano that will be fixed in the future. My nephew loved him too! They played a few duets before he left. I’m pretty sure we’ve found our permanent piano tuner. Thanks Thomas!

    C.I. FROM FORT WORTH
  • Thomas is one of the most trustworthy, professional people I know. If you need your piano tuned, he’s the guy!

    S.C. FROM BURLESON
  • I got my grand piano tuned by Thomas at DFW Piano Tuning after I moved houses. He was so professional and easy to work with. My piano sounds so good that I am actually enjoying practicing again. Who knew?! I have recommended this company to my friends and they’ve all had the same great experience.

    M.P. FROM GARLAND
  • I absolutely loved Thomas Woods. He was meticulous and thorough. My vintage upright sounds better than it has in many years. I will definitely call him the next time. And what a great pianist! It was a joy just to hear him play after he finished tuning.
