Continuation

After an interesting year of mild starvation I’ve had a week of work that was as equal to a typical pre-March 2020 week. In the past year, lack of work led to apathy and caused me to neglect this website a little. Thanks to the recent slew of calls I’m feeling much happier and more motivated about my Leeds and Bradford piano tuning.

I haven’t always been on time with reminders or with updating my Leeds piano tuner availability section. When you originally start a business you spend a lot of time on the website, making sure the availability is updated at least once a day and you have more to talk about on your blog. As time goes on you start to rely on people texting, emailing or contacting you to give a time that works best for them for a piano tuning. There are fewer topics you can write about that you haven’t already said. Also, piano tuning, repairs and regulation are niche topics I’m not sure how many people are genuinely interested.

I don’t think I’ll use this blog as much as I used to when I started piano tuning. There just isn’t as much new ground to cover. Instead it’ll be used for any important updates.

My Youtube Channel

Throughout my misspent youth I acquired a gorgeous collection of guitars, amplifiers and speaker cabinets. This collection means the world to me. On my days off I’ve started making video demonstrations of some of my favourite pieces of equipment, partly as a way to direct some traffic towards my channel and to grow my piano tuning business.

I haven’t uploaded any piano or piano tuning related videos yet. Mainly because I don’t currently have a piano at home. I’ve been contemplating buying a small Yamaha piano (I’ve perused the Piano Man shop in Leeds, in between piano tuning jobs), but it’s not on the cards right now. I do a lot of writing/recording and most of that tends to be rock music centred around rather simple, joyous guitar riffs.

Piano Tuner Leeds open during Lockdown

In case it wasn’t clear, Leeds piano tuner will continue his essential work after Thursday. However, if you’ve already booked and would like to cancel, you are completely within your rights to do so. Please give at least 12 hours notice (if possible), so I can book someone else into the newly available slot.

The blog posts below go into more detail about safety measures when booking a piano tuner, if you’re concerned.

Leeds Piano Tuner still resilient and ready for work

The Leeds piano tuner is continuing to work safely across West Yorkshire as normal. Piano tuning is essential work that cannot be done from home and there’s no reason why it can’t be performed safely.

Please remember that under the first sign of symptoms a booking will be CANCELLED immediately. He is extremely cautious and is practicing strict hygiene measures. Likewise, if you are showing symptoms, it is much wiser to rearrange!

It might be easier to contact him by phone if you live in an isolated area or if you have a busy schedule. He is still able to travel, but groups each booking so they are close geographically (although naturally, this can’t always be done). His phone number is 07542667040 and his email is richard@pianotunerleeds.co.uk
