Tuning a Piano

All manufacturers recommend that your piano is tuned every 6 months to keep it at pitch. If your piano is tuned less frequently it may need a longer tuning OR several tunings to bring it back to the stability required.

The main causes for your piano going out of tune are:

  • Playing it - the more and harder it is played, the more the tuning will be affected.
  • Temperature and Humidity - if your piano is situated in a hot or cold location (near radiators or open windows) the tuning will fluctuate. This also applies to pianos that are in a room where there are clothes drying or anywhere with moisture, such as kitchens or bathrooms!
