At the age of 18, Arthur Heeley went off to train at Newark College’s School of Instrumental Repair for three years, where he completed the Advanced Piano Tuning, Repair and Maintenance course in June 2014. 

Now 28, Arthur has ten years of experience behind him and has tuned hundreds of pianos. 


Recent feedback – (Arthur is always pleased to receive feedback) – 

28/09/21 “Arthur recently tuned my piano that was badly out of tune as I bought it second hand and it had not been tuned for some while. I’d like to say that Arthur is a true professional and it was a pleasure to meet him. He has a really pleasant nature and is totally trustworthy.
His attention to detail it excellent and nothing is too much trouble for him.
The piano has now sprung back to life and I would have no hesitation in using him again and recommending him to anyone who needs their piano tuning.”

11/09/20 “Many thanks for your painstaking work on our 1960s piano today, which hadn’t been tuned for a number of years. You are clearly a perfectionist, and it is now a pleasure to play!”

05/06/20 “Arthur thank you so much for your work on our piano this afternoon – we are really happy with it”

29/06/2019 “Thank you so much for your hard work today. …. I have enjoyed playing what sounds like a new piano! Thanks again and best wishes”

17/10/2018  “My dear Arthur, A brief note to say how much I appreciate your fine work, you are a master craftsman and no mistake….. I  immediately tried one of my favourite pieces  “AS TIME GOES BY ” from the 1931 film Casablanca and I was delighted. Many thanks, …”

18/01/2018 “…  just a quick email to say thank you for tuning my Schimmel last week. It was very convenient to be able to book using your website and an email. I appreciated your prompt arrival and I’m really pleased with your thorough work – the upper registers do indeed sound much better now. I will be sure to contact you again for future tunings.”

Arthur can come to tune your piano in this area…

Shrewsbury, Telford, Market Drayton, Wem, Ellesmere, Oswestry, Church Stretton, Newport, Much Wenlock


Old Piano?   Pianos made before about 1950 can be good to look at, but very difficult to tune and impossible to keep in tune. Often they will go out of tune during the tuning process, or the next day, or within a few days. Pianos built before 1950 might be “Untunable”.

If your piano is Untunable then Arthur will charge a £20 fee to cover his expenses.

Old pianos which go out of tune within a few days or weeks are a problem to all piano tuners. Such pianos are tuned to the highest level possible at the time of tuning but cannot be guaranteed to hold their pitch and will need re-tuning every few months.

Piano not been tuned for more than 2 years?   Pianos should be tuned every 6 months to maintain them in optimum health. Also, when regularly used, a piano which is out of tune will spoil the player’s sense of pitch. If your piano has not been tuned for more than 2 years then it will need two tunings, a few weeks apart, to bring it up to pitch.

Why always at 1pm? Because that’s when Arthur’s dad is available to drive him there. If  this is not a suitable time for you, please email, alternative times can be arranged.


Tuning Fee – £50         (A surcharge will be added If outside the 30 mile radius – please email for quote).
