I offer a cleaning service for both Upright and Grand Pianos. The service includes soundboard cleaning, removal of keys to gain access to the keybed (this is where decades of dust and objects can be found), and action cleaning.

Voicing Service

Voicing of the Piano in simple terms is brightening or mellowing the tone of a Piano. Also over time the tone across the full compass of a piano can become uneven due to grooves and compressed felt in the hammer heads. Voicing will remedy the unevenness of tone. This includes hammer reshaping.
