Yes, I have a Piano Tuner Sheffield website and a Piano Tuner Leeds website. It’s difficult to keep on top of both websites sometimes, but as far as booking customers in both areas? So far, so good. There seems to be more work in West Yorkshire, particularly in Leeds and Harrogate where a lack of piano tuners (mainly due to older piano tuners retiring from the trade) has increased demand – so much so that I can group together Leeds piano tuning jobs with Sheffield piano tuning jobs. That’s always nice. Honestly, I quite enjoy the long drives between cities as well as seeing new localities after the piano tuning work. Sometimes it doesn’t feel like work.
The problem with Sheffield is that there are already several Sheffield Piano Tuners currently active so for a city of its size I have fewer clients than you’d expect. Down south there doesn’t seem to be many Chesterfield Piano Tuners, so I get several jobs a week in that area. Rotherham is also a popular area – perhaps I should call myself the Rotherham Piano Tuner instead!
More and more piano tuning work in Hull and Humberside recently, so a third piano tuning website might be on my list shortly!
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.
