Elise did such an amazing job on my two pianos. I don't think the upright has ever been so in tune while I've owned it, though I've had it tuned three or four times. As for the larger Baldwin, it sounds way less muddled when playing, especially in the bass end. I cannot put in words how wonderful it has been to play over the past few days. There's a whole new character to my favorite pieces--thanks to Elise!

STANDARD TUNING $140
I will make fine adjustments to the tension of the piano's strings, aligning the intervals between the tones to produce a beautiful sounding instrument.
I will remove dirt, grime and dust from underneath the keys and inside the piano.
Whether the piano needs help with sticky keys, a broken string, or pedal issues, this service will get the piano back in great shape. I charge $30 per 30 min.
During the last few weeks, Ms. Elise Blevins has evaluated the needs of my Baby Grand Steck piano and given it expert care. She is a lovely person--kind, generous, soft-spoken, talented, and professional. She is a tireless worker with an expert knowledge of pianos. I am beyond grateful for her help.

SHOP WORK - REBUILDING THE ACTION
Elise is our new go-to tuner! She arrived on-time, was quick and professional, and did a fantastic job. We called around looking for piano tuners when we moved to Cincinnati, and Elise was the quickest with her response, scheduling, and pricing. Not to mention, she's a lot nicer to work with than some of the tuners we've had over the years. Thanks Elise!
