If you’d like to have a tuning before your session, please notify us several weeks in advance to schedule with our technician. However, please note that this comes at an additional cost.
Do you have music teachers on staff?

Yes, we do! At $0.50 per page, we can print materials for your reservation. Please email us your materials with specific instructions in PDF FORM ONLY, with 36 hours notice and we will confirm that we can do it. Since we are not a copy shop, preparation time is required.
