Perfect Pitch Piano Servicing

Tuning - Repairs - Restoration

Competitive Tuning Rates

Competent, Friendly Service

for eastern CT & western RI

It is my belief that good old-fashioned honesty, and service with a smile, are the mainstays of good business. My dedication is to helping each customer achieve the greatest possible enjoyment from their piano. Aural tuning techniques (by ear) in combination with state-of-the-art electronic tuning equipment, allow me to provide the best tuning results for all makes and models of pianos in the home, school, church or other venue.

Over time a piano, like anything else, will gradually deteriorate. Regular service from a highly skilled tuner can keep your piano sounding and playing well for a long time. And even when a piano has fallen into disrepair and needs help, my repair services can make an old piano play and sound like new again.

Thank you for visiting the Perfect Pitch Piano Servicing site.  I look forward to hearing from you, and servicing your piano soon.

Piano tuning

Pianos require tuning every six months to correct for pitch changes due to temperature and humidity fluctuations.


Stuck keys, broken parts, snapped strings.  No problem!


Let’s breathe life back into that old piano.  Action rebuilds, restringing, and key recovering are only the beginning.


Is that old piano worth fixing up?  An evaluation comes with a full report on the state of your piano along with itemized estimates and recommendations on how to proceed.

Humidity Control Systems

Certified installer of Dampp-Chaser’s Piano Life Saver System to control humidity levels in the piano to help keep the piano in tune and ultimately extend the life of the piano.

Don’t just take it from me, let my customers do the talking…

Rich has been our piano technician for 5 years now! Second to none, Rich is the utmost professional. In addition to maintaining our Yamaha G3 and the humidifier (Dampp Chaser), he provides courtesy calls every six months, a big help for our busy work and household schedules. I recommend him highly!

“Rich Ricard is a wonderful professional who supplies great work at a great price.  Whether for the pianos here at Griswold High School or my own personal piano in my home, Rich is always my first call for piano tuning services.  I freely recommend him to anyone who asks me for a referral.”

Ray Churchill

Choral Director, Griswold High School, Jewett City, CT

“As a professional pianist, music therapist, and all things musical person for over 45 years, I depend on my piano to do what I tell it to do.  So for almost a decade now, Richard Ricard of Perfect Pitch Piano Servicing has been my “go to” guy when it comes to taking care of my beloved instrument!  Richard is competent, professional, and on time!  With my busy schedule, he keeps his promise and shows up when he is supposed to.  In addition, he takes care of my humidifier system. Through Richard, I have purchased supplies needed to take care of my instrument in between tunings which I do faithfully twice a year.  Richard puts the word “service” in “customer service” since he calls me for appointments, provides written documentation as to what is done with my piano for my records and tax keeping/tracking, and he also “fixes” things when I think they are not just quite right.  You will be more than satisfied if you call Rich.  I recommend his services to everyone who needs a tuner.  His rates are more than reasonable.  And he does not disappoint!”
