“How often should my piano be tuned?”

Every piano manufacturer recommends getting your piano serviced 2 to 4 times each year.

This is the most recommended regular service. Use, temperature, and humidity changes affect more than the tuning, it also effects the tone and play-ability of the instrument. Complete care will keep your piano playing in top condition

The most basic service every piano needs is tuning. There’s over 18 tons of tension on a properly tuned piano balanced within a 6 pound tolerance. If it’s been more than a year since your last tuning then it’s almost essential to book a “Complete Care Piano Service”

If your piano isn’t allowing for easy musical expression, is difficult to play, or you notice the sound is always loud then your piano likely needs a more comprehensive service. Upright pianos can be made to play better in a half day “concert” service so the music you make better fits the space and talent you play in. Grand pianos, being more complex, typically require a full day “concert” service.


  1. Chris has done an amazing job with my Baby Grand Piano. It has never sounded and played, any better. Chris is friendly and personable, who works very well with people. I have recommended many of my students to CJ’S PIANOS , for their piano maintenance. I highly recommend!!!
