Luis is excellent! He tuned and touched up our very old piano and did an incredible job. He was very careful, meticulous, extremely friendly and offered advice to keep our piano up to par. Will most definitely be contacting him for future work on the piano

Our Kawai piano had not been tuned since before Covid and was also moved to our new home. Luis Hernandez brought our piano back to life. He explained what he was working on and was very personable. We will have him back for regular tunings. Before he left, Luis played a piano piece to demonstrate the tuning of our piano - it was lovely. I highly recommend Mr. Hernandez.

Mr. Hernandez drove several hours to do special work on a vintage Steinway for our company. I was particularly exhilarated to hear him playing beautiful classical music after the tuning was complete. I learned during his visit but he is not only an emerging piano tuner, but also an accomplished pianist and teacher. Whether you need tuning, lessons, or Pedagogical and Richmond, this is your source.

Luis is a consummate professional who reinstalled a faulty humidifier and tuned my Steinway B beautifully after our move to Emsworth. He is also a brilliant pianist in and understands how important a well maintained instrument is to a musician.

As a professional classical pianist I can say with certainty I trust the expertise and insight Luis provided tuning Brown Chapel Church's piano for an Ignis duo piano recital. We discussed what we needed and he not only delivered but exceeded our expectations by fixing things we thought would be a lost cause. Luis has become BCC honorary tuner for all our future recitals. I also appreciated his flexibility, working with us to find a time that suited us.

Luis was very professional. He was on time and very knowledgeable. He spent extra time getting my Butler, PA piano back on track. We had a very nice chat! I will definitely have him back!

We had a great experience working with Luis for the first cleaning and tuning of our new (but used) baby grand. Luis was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful, and provided a lot of great advice on how to care for our new piano. The piano sounds beautiful after Luis worked on it, and I appreciated hearing Luis play beautiful music on the piano when he was done to test it out. I would definitely recommend Luis Hernandez Piano Tuning to others and will be using Luis’ services again for our next tuning at the end of the year.

Luis was easy to work with, communicative, and has competitive pricing as compared to other piano tuners in the Pittsburgh area. I inherited an upright piano that hadn’t been tuned since 1989, and it now plays beautifully. I will be sure to use Luis for future maintenance tunings and repairs needed.
