Michelle trained full time for 3 years at Newark Technical College 1980-83 in tuning, repairs, and restoration of pianos. She is highly experienced in all aspects of piano work, including Concert Tuning for International Orchestras and Soloists at Sage, Gateshead, and Middlesbrough Town Hall. But most of her work is domestic, school, and hotel pianos. She has lives in Windermere, and welcomes all enquiries in Cumbria.
Although she was trained to tune pianos aurally, Michelle now also uses sophisticated piano tuning software which helps with large raises of pitch on neglected pianos, whilst still using the aural and practical skills necessary for accurate and stable tuning.
Michelle passed a stringent tuning/repairs test in 1985 to join the Pianoforte Tuners' Association, which exists to encourage and maintain high standards in all aspects of piano work.
Her tuning price for pianos in the Windermere area is from £75.00.
Prices in other areas quoted for but usually £80 - 100.00 (More for large pitch raises)
Michelle is still making regular trips to Teesside/North Yorkshire from Windermere.
Michelle can make special trips for date-sensitive tunings, but may have to charge extra for travelling time if requested at short notice.
PAYMENTS: Cash, Cheques, PayPal, or BACS (online banking) on completion of tuning.
