Francois Doucette Piano Services
Serving Reno, Nevada, and all of northern Nevada, Francois Doucette Piano Services offers superior piano tuning services. A registered member of the Piano Technicians Guild, I have been tuning, regulating, and voicing pianos for more than 40 years. My approach is to do everything I can to inspire you to play, study, and practice.
After tuning for top artists such as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Liberace, Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, and many more in the showrooms of South Lake Tahoe, I had to quickly learn how to be laser sharp, and tailor each piano to the specific artist. It was extremely important to me to provide the best tuning, as it would be reflected in the artist's performance that night. I have utilized this skill in the tuning of each piano I have worked on ever since.
The Importance of Maintenance
All pianos have interior mechanisms that need to be maintained, just like an automobile. After miles and miles of playing, all pianos need to be regulated and voiced. This service gives them the best quality and tone that they were made to produce. Did you know that your piano should be tuned twice a year? Manufacturers recommend it and so do I!
Regulating adjusts all the moving parts, and voicing refines the tone the piano creates. Both of these procedures will allow your piano to "sing" as it was meant to do. For additional information, please feel free to contact me to discuss the specific needs of your piano.
I keep in contact with individuals who either wish to sell their current piano or purchase another one. I can be of assistance in this process, and have many satisfied customers who have networked with me to locate the right buyer or seller. Moreover, I can assist you with moving your piano. Please feel free to contact me by email, phone, or text, and do not hesitate to ask for references.
