Piano Tuning

“How often should my piano be tuned?”

  • Every piano manufacturer recommends getting your piano serviced 2 to 3 times each year.

A piano tuner adjusts over 200 strings, one at a time to bring a piano into tune (A440). Piano tuning requires minute adjustments to the tensions of each string of a piano to align the frequency intervals between keys so that the instrument sounds its best. Some of the finest tunings also include slight voicing adjustments to the hammers and action parts.

The organization that sets the highest standards for trustworthy information on piano tuning is the Piano Technicians Guild (PTG).  C.J.’s Pianos follows the standards set by PTG and Chris passed (with flying colors!) all his Registered Piano Technician exams for certification as an RPT in June 2014.

  1. Chris did an outstanding job with our baby grand piano! We would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to have their piano tuned or for further advice on purchasing or restorations!
