What does a piano tuning mean and why do you need it?

Your piano contains over 200 strings. These strings are stretched at high tension along the piano’s frame. When a piano technician tunes a piano, he or she adjusts the tension of each string in the piano to ensure they sound in harmony.

It is possible to not have your piano tuned every day, but it can be demotivating for those who are trying to practice. It is not uncommon for children to comment to their parents about how their piano at home doesn’t sound or feel like the one they play in school. This is usually due to the fact of the piano not being regularly maintained, and not because the piano at the home is inferior. You are also more likely to let environmental factors affect your piano, which can lead to problems that go unnoticed. This could lead to permanent and more costly damage. Additionally, it can be difficult to tune a piano which has not been maintained regularly.

How many times should I have my piano tuned

In order to maintain a piano’s playing ability, it should be tuned approximately twice per year. You should note that the piano will lose its tune regardless of how it is being used. A brand new piano, or a piano that has new strings, will likely need to tune 3-4 times during the first year. This is due to the fact that new strings stretch when they are being used, making it more difficult to tune. Pianos that are used very often, such a one that is used daily for lessons or one that is used by professional pianists, need to be tuned every 2 – 3 months.
