With a little care from the right pair of skilled hands, a piano can become a treasured heirloom that provides generations of pleasure for any budding pianist. At Piano Magic, we’re dedicated to ensuring all pianos get the attention they deserve and we provide a comprehensive range of services that range from piano tuning and regulation to full piano restoration and sales.

Operating throughout Johannesburg and Pretoria, Piano Magic has built a reputation for excellence that now takes us throughout South Africa and into our neighbouring countries too. With almost four decades of experience behind us, we’re able to deliver the very best of piano tuning, and piano restoration services – able to keep your pride and joy sounding pitch perfect year in, year out.

We find many of our customers who wish to rekindle their love of piano have been told their instrument is beyond repair or uneconomical to restore it to a playable condition. We dispute this. We have become well-known for restoring much loved pianos to their former glory, ensuring you can keep your prized heirloom and hear its voice sounding just as good as it once did. Piano mechanisms are complex, created using a wide variety of materials – but our unrivalled understanding of every facet of the striking process enables us to repair, restore, and finely balance your piano to give you the rich, warm sound and crystal clarity you’re looking for.

To complement our restoration, repairs and piano tuning, we offer a range of ancillary services that include expert piano transportation to make sure your piano is moved as safely as possible. You can’t move a piano like a piece of furniture – let us take care of it and you’ll save yourself heartache and cost in the future.

We have a wide range of pianos for sale, some of which can be viewed on our showroom page. We do not sell second hand ‘un-restored’ pianos as that would compromise our high quality and reliability standard. In short, at Piano Magic, we don’t sell cheap pianos. We just sell quality restored pianos for so much cheaper. When you buy a piano from us, the price always includes a matching stool, transportation to your premises, tuning on arrival, and a warranty.

For more information on any of our services – including piano sales, hire, transportation, etc. – browse our site and then contact us directly. We’d love to hear from you.

Piano Tuning - Mostly, pianos go out of tune due to the changing seasons, as a result of expansion and contraction within the piano. This change causes the pitch of the instrument to rise or fall, thus taking the piano out of tune. That is why you should tune your piano on a six monthly basis.

Piano Restoration- We have established a reputation of restoring to perfection pianos whose owners were told to throw them in the junkyard (‘irreparable’). This is where we’ve gained long lasting respect from our clientele. If the piano has sentimental value to you, then we make it our priority to restore it to its former glory or even better. After you refurbish your piano, you will be able to pass it on to your child with pride.

Piano for Sale - We have new and used beauties. Each of our piano purchases includes a complimentary tuning and transportation (subject to distance). Due to our confidence in our instruments, we give a 2-year warranty with every sale. For playing pleasure and peace of mind, buy a piano from us today!

Piano Transportation - We repair a lot of pianos that have been damaged due to ‘unprofessional’ transportation. For your peace of mind and for the longevity of your piano, always use professionals to do a professional’s job. Let us move your piano!

Piano Repairs - The action (inner mechanism) of the piano is made up of hundreds of wood, felt, plastic, and metal parts.When not in use, mice and/or fish moths tend to get into the piano and start eating and/or corroding these elements. And so contrary to popular belief, a piano which is not in use often requires more maintenance than a piano in daily use.

Piano Hire - When you hire a piano, it allows you time to see if your child is serious about the instrument. However, with that said, it takes about a year before you can know if they’re serious or not. So, you might want to weigh up the cost of hiring for a year against buying a piano.

Piano Appraisals/Evaluation - We also assist you when you’ve found a piano you’d like to buy from a private seller. We evaluate a piano in-and-out, for your protection and that of our reputation. We, however, offer no guarantees in regard to these pianos. Also, remember that you’ll still need professional transportation and tuning after purchasing it.

Piano Lessons - At Piano Magic, we do our best to give you a complete piano experience, and as a result we assist you in finding a piano teacher for you or your child.
