Mr Music's Piano Services
Piano tuner: tuning, repair and maintenance in COVENTRY AND WARWICKSHIRE area (Kenilworth, Warwick, Hinckley, Balsall Common, Nuneaton, Bedworth, Rugby, etc.) and mid YORKSHIRE (Pontefract, Castleford, Doncaster, Rotherham, Barnsley, Wakefield, East Leeds, Goole, Selby, etc.).
Welcome to my website. In case you're wondering, this is a picture of my family on Christmas day 2019 (I'm on the right!!!), which I thought would be a bit less boring than a picture of me tuning a piano!
I am well qualified, with a BTEC national diploma in musical instrument technology, a City and Guilds in piano tuning, and my Piano Tuners' Association membership, which is by examination only and is the qualification I am most proud of. (Find out more about the Piano Tuners' Association here.) I've been tuning for nearly 30 years now, so you know you will get a quality service. (I also have a Diploma in Music from the Open University, a BA(Hons) in Education Studies, and a PGCE in music, but none of these have anything to do with my tuning, although I have learnt many transferrable skills for the business from undertaking these qualifications, and I am better qualified than I used to be to advise on piano suitability, starting ages for learners, etc.)

I generally only tune in Yorkshire on Mondays, Tuesdays and occasional Fridays (although this is my paperwork day!) as I still tune in Coventry most Wednesdays and Thursdays, which is where I built the business originally. Sorry, no weekends! First appointments are normally at 8.30am and generally, final appointments are 1.30pm as I often have to taxi my daughter around after school. (I can occasionally arrange appointments later than this, but only well in advance and for a considerable extra charge.)
I cover an area centred upon Pontefract and up to date starting prices can be found by clicking on the link below, based on a piano that has been tuned in the past 12 months and is in good working order. There are extra charges for pitch raises (most pianos that haven't been tuned for more than a year or so will be below concert pitch) and repairs (including string breakages). I need to speak to you to give you a more accurate estimate, so why not give me call (Monday, Tuesday and Friday evenings after 7pm are the best time to catch me and the landline will generally go to answer phone - the mobile is always the best number to get me on), or fill in the enquiry form here. I will then phone you back as soon as I can. (I won't generally correspond by email as I find it cumbersome and time consuming! One short phone call can cover all questions and get an appointment booked, whereas it might take a few emails to do this, but if you fill this form in as accurately as you can, I will have most of the information I need to make the quickest possible call to you at an appropriate time.)
