How much is piano tuning?

Depends on the quality of the technician and the years of experience like with any field. I know of one tech that charges $180 + for the tuning alone.Most technicians do not include pitch raises or repairs. Pitch raises take longer and have nothing to do with the actual tuning of the piano itself. The piano must be brought up or, lowered to, concert pitch before the actual tuning can take place.Repairs also have nothing to do with tuning. An average tuning takes about 1 to 1. 5 hours for most tuners.AnswerThe going price here in the Bangor area of Maine is about $100. The time it takes is at least 2 hours which includes minor adjustments, simple cleaning, and lubrication. There are added charges if there is a repair such as a broken string, replacement of saddle straps, or trimming of dampers that may be buzzing. One of the best piano reference resources is AnswerHere in Los Angeles, I charge between $75 and $125 depending on how bad the piano is and how long it's been since it was tuned last. Please tune your piano at least once a year. Manufactures recommend twice a year.

Why would a piano go out of tune every 15 minutes?

If a piano is rarely played, when it's tuned it will still be a bit out of tune. Most likely if you just got your piano and haven't played it much, tuning it won't help for a bit. You will have to play the piano often to keep it in tune after it's been tuned.

What should you price a Melodigrand 64 key piano for?

imho, the question is who in the world would buy one at all? digital keyboards are now high quality (weighted hammer key action and sound) andmoderate priced- especially if used; whereas who would buy a 64 key piano -think moving and tuning costs -versus, if you want a real piano, getting a similarly sized spinetfree from pianoadoption when theright one pops up(and pay for moving/tuning alone). why go through the trouble of a labor-pricey beginner piano first?
