The Sheffield Piano Tuner marches on…

Even though Sheffield is now in Tier 3,  I would still ardently encourage anyone to book a piano tuning if they need it. My workload has halved since March, meaning I’m more flexible with my working hours than ever and can work around your schedule. I’ve even had some late night appointments (8 or 9 PM) which has been a first for me. Before the pandemic I regularly worked 12 – 14 hour days, but that doesn’t happen anymore which is somewhat depressing as I do enjoy my work as a piano tuner. I’d hate to have to make piano tuning a part time gig – let me do what I love!

 

If you’re on the fence about booking a piano tuning,  you’re more than welcome to ask any questions you might have via email (richard@pianotunersheffield.co.uk) or phone 07542667040. I’m always happy to help.

(Also: yes, this website needs an overhaul. That’s something that could’ve afforded pre-lockdown, but will have to wait until next year.)

Sheffield Piano Tuner continuing essential work

The Sheffield piano tuner will continue working normal hours and is grateful for your custom. Piano tuning is essential work and nothing has changed for him. In fact, it might be a good time to book a piano tuning as many people are holding off until after the pandemic.

If you live in Sheffield, Rotherham, Chesterfield Doncaster or Barnsley it’ll be much easier to book a piano tuning as the piano tuner covers those localities on a weekly basis. If you live further away then a booking is still possible, but you might be best speaking to the Sheffield piano tuner over the phone (0752667040) first. Minimizing travel is important during this time.

If you are concerned about safety, the piano tuner is extremely careful. He practices social distancing, hand washing and applies antibacterial hand sanitizer before and after every piano tuning. If you’d like him to wear a mask please ask him before the booking.

More good news for the Sheffield Piano Tuner

Your Sheffield Piano Tuner is a delightful mood today, filled with sunny optimism at what new joy summer will bring. June and July used to be a slow time of year for the Sheffield piano tuner, with many of his clientele enjoying their well-earned holidays abroad, but this year more and more work seems to be coming his way – in a large part thanks to the many recommendations from customers and respected artists in the music industry (plus a recommendation from a local MP!). He had the pleasure of tuning a lovely Yamaha U3 and a modern Kemble upright at the Yellow Arch Studios on Monday for piano students taking their graded exams. He also undertook piano tuning and repair work at the Crucible Theatre for Doc Fest and the grand piano at Wortley Hall (a beautiful stately home located north of Sheffield and south of Barnsley) for a wedding. While the Sheffield piano tuner always enjoys working on home pianos, the opportunity to see new places is always welcomed and seen as a perk of the job!

Is there anything more beautiful than the sound of a piano gently flowing out of the patio doors on a hot summers day? Make sure you don’t embarrass yourself by letting your piano go out of tune – what would your neighbours think? Book a piano tuning today to ensure those major thirds are beating like a well-tuned snare drum.
