Piano Tuning – FAQ About Piano Tuning

Piano tuning
Piano tuning is something you need to be concerned with if you play this instrument, irrespective of whether you do so professionally or simply as a hobby now and again. Below, we answer all of your most common queries regarding piano tuning.

Why does a piano go out of tune?

The main reason why the strings in your piano will change pitch is because they move. The strings change because the bridge moves as a result of the soundboard constantly moving. This causes the piano to go out of tune. There are numerous reasons why the soundboard changes. One of the most common reasons is a change in temperature.

How often should you tune a piano?

When you look for pianos for sale, different manufacturers will tell you different things. Generally, you should get the piano tuned between two and four times a year. At the very least, you need to have your piano tuned once a year.

When is the best time for a piano to be tuned?

It is a good idea to get your piano tuned after each weather change. So, if you are getting your piano tuned four times a year, do so a month after each season begins. If you only get your piano tuned twice a year, then opt for either a month after winter and summer, or a month after spring and autumn.

After playing on my piano once it has been tuned, it goes out of tune again, is there a problem with my piano?

No, it actually hasn’t been tuned properly. A piano tuner has two jobs. The first is to get the piano in tune, and the second is to make it stay there. If your piano has gone out of tune within a short period of time, take it back for further piano tuning.
