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.

Here 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. MasterTuner.com

No, tuning the piano doesn't make the keys taller, but, if the regulation is adjusted on your piano, then that can make the keys taller. Chris, Perfect Piano Tuning, L.L.C., Phoenix, AZ
Piano tuning at home requires special piano tuning tools. A piano turning wrench is most important. It is not advised to tune your piano yourself and you can find an expert online or in the yellow pages.
yes it is true that they do that because iplay the piano
This piano needs another tuning. I am tuning into my second-most favorite radio station now.
You do not need to take traditional courses in piano tuning, however you would probably need to work as an apprentice with a professional piano tuner.

Realistically, it is probably not worth much. It may cost more to have a piano like this moved than it is worth.
Piano tunings vary per area. In Utah, they start out at about $75 per tuning. Sometimes pianos will need several tunings depending on the piano and if it was severely out of tune. You should contact your local piano store for a list of piano tuners. Dunkley Music in Utah
