Before tuning your piano, Karla will perform a thorough inspection to ensure any pre-existing concerns are brought to your attention. She will then proceed to tune your piano, a process which usually takes between 120 and 180 minutes to complete. If you have any special requests with regard to how you would like your instrument to sound, Karla is always happy to discuss your personal needs and temper or voice your piano accordingly. Since 2012 Piano Service has tuned and repaired at the Cairns International, Cairns Reef Hotel Casino, Vivaldis, Paradise Palms, P&O Pacific Eden, CSHS, Tinaroo Lake Resort, The Cairns Convention Centre, The Tanks Arts Centre and Cairns Performing Arts Centre (CPAC).
*Please note bookings for tunings are taken three weeks in advance.
With around 10000 moving parts, the modern piano is the most complicated machine ever made of wood, leather and felt. Whether it's a buzzing noise, stuck key, creaking pedal or any one of the hundreds of things that can go wrong with pianos, John and Karla will quickly locate the problem and ensure your piano is expertly repaired. Minor repairs to broken and worn action parts can be carried out onsite, however structural repairs and major part replacements are carried out in the Piano Service workshop located in Edmonton.
For any piano action to work correctly, each intermediate part must come into play at precisely the right time and move precisely the right distance. Additionally, each pedal must do its job correctly. Regulating grand and upright pianos involves the careful adjustment of all these parts, so each does exactly what it should at exactly the right time giving you maximum control over your instrument.
Reading music and playing an instrument is the only activity where three areas of the brain operate simultaneously: the auditory, visual and motor cortices. Studies show that children who have musical training display positive structural and functional brain changes such as increased grey matter volume in various regions of the brain. Our lessons are individually crafted for each student to ensure maximum benefit from each lesson. Students may wish to combine practical and theory lessons. By participating in a music lesson each week and practicing regularly at home, you will discover just how well you can play, and how exciting learning the piano can be!
*Please note there is a six month waiting list for lesson enrolments.
