BLEVINS PIANO TUNING

Please include the last time your piano was tuned, the brand and your address.  If the piano is not tunable, a $40 travel fee will be charged.

ABOUT

For the past 10 years, Elise Blevins has serviced pianos throughout the Cincinnati area and beyond.  After attending the UC College - Conservatory of Music (CCM) for Oboe Performance, Elise served a 3 year apprenticeship where she learned to tune pianos aurally and rebuild piano actions.  Elise is currently a contract tuner/action rebuilder for CCM, and she has passed the Piano Technicians Guild exams.

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!

PROFESSIONAL SERVICES

Piano Tuning

TUNING

When a piano hasn't been tuned annually, it drops drastically in pitch, and a standard tuning won't suffice.  Situations like this require a pitch raise, which is much more laborious than a standard tuning.  A pitch raise is multiple tunings in 1, and the goal is to get the piano stabilized at or near A440 Hz.  

Standard Tuning ($150) - 0-4 Hz flat (typically tuned within the last 3 years).

Small Pitch Raise ($190) - 5-12 Hz flat (typically tuned within the last 4 years).                       

Average Pitch Raise ($200) - 13-20 Hz flat (typically tuned within the last 5-10 years).

Large Pitch Raise ($210) - 21-28 Hz flat (typically tuned within the last 10-20 years).

CLEANING $75

I will remove dirt, grime and dust from underneath the keys and inside the piano.

REPAIRS

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.

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!
