Piano Tuning in Coventry and Edinburgh: £55
(formerly with Steinway & Sons)
Includes raising pitch 1/2-tone when your piano has been neglected for years.
Corona virus update – June 8th, 2020
As of Monday, June 15th, I hope to gradually return to work, tuning for customers in homes where no symptoms of Covid-19 have been experienced. For my part I’ll check my temperature and oxygen every morning and will call to postpone any visits if I detect any changes out of the normal range. I’ll wear a mask while in your home and carry wipes and an alcohol cleanser for use after any work has been completed. In your home I’ll respect the 2m rule and will need to work alone in the room where your piano is. I will with heavy heart decline any offers of drinks or snacks. Much as I like to hold forth about pianos I’ll keep any discussion regarding yours to email, text or phone to avoid prolonged contact in your home. I look forward to seeing you soon as the damn pandemic allows.
Benjamin Treuhaft is a piano tuner in Coventry. His training in his craft began more than 40 years ago when he learned to tune and regulate in piano factories in the American midwest and east coast and honed his skills in New York in the early 1970s at the prestigious Steinway & Sons Concert Basement where he tuned daily for international stars such as Vladimir Horowitz and Glenn Gould (both have since died but Ben is not responsible). Read more about Ben here.
Ben now lives in Coventry but also tunes in Edinburgh and throughout Scotland, and does all piano repairs and regulating. He travels far afield, tuning for the Western Isles schools in Lewis, Harris and Barra.
Keyboard Concerto #5 In F Minor, BWV 1056 – Largo, tuned by Ben for Glenn Gould for the sound track of the film Slaughterhouse 5.
