How often does your piano need tuning?

Normally, pianos need tuning every six months because they gradually go out of tune.

When you switch the heating on in the winter, the humidity falls, the sound boar in the piano shrinks a little, and the tuning changes. A few months later, with the heating off, humidity rises, so once again the tuning changes. This happens every year because the sound board of the piano expands and contracts with these fluctuating humidity levels.

If you leave it too long between re-tuning, the pitch will drop noticeably, which then may require two tunings to restore it to the correct pitch.

Care and Attention

We like to give our tuning work plenty of care, with attention to detail. After all, a piano is a big investment, and needs to be looked after.

When we tune your piano, we also check the mechanical state to see if it needs attention in other areas. We are always happy to discuss any problems that may arise, and because of the teaching work, we can explain things in a way that you can understand.


Don't Tune It Yourself !

No! No! No!  Please don't try to tune your own piano unless you are properly trained and qualified to do so! This is not a guitar that you can tweak while you listen: the piano is a very delicate and precise instrument, and you can put it seriously out of tune if you try. You can even cause damage.
