“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.
