Reason #13

I showed this one to my wife. Maybe it’s just piano technician humor but I must hear this joke 3 times a month:

“You can tune a piano, but can you tuna fish…”

Seriously, we need to find better piano tuning humor 🙂

Reason #12

If he could manage to play a tuned instrument – I don’t want to shame anyone here… {joke face}

While my daughter was learning the Minuet in G I helped her by adding some lyrics:

Bach had a lot of children

He fathered them by 3 wives

And he wrote lots of music so you could play this

It didn’t fit perfectly, but with the right melismas it was sufficient.

Reason #10

Kids these days…

I’ve revived old family heirloom pianos on countless occasions. Did you know, if the piano was serviced as regularly as grandma likely had it done that it wouldn’t need so much today?

Reason #9

Number

Nine

I’ve had so many tell me they can’t tell if their piano is out of tune or not – but their kids can tell. Inevitably, this will train their ears as well as anyone else in earshot as to how the instrument should sound. When you hear it properly, you begin to expect it properly.

Reason #7

Even if you don’t immediately start practicing more because you prefer the sound of your piano after a tuning, you will naturally perform better because the sound is cleaner and less distracting, allowing you to be more musical. The other bonus is that your mistakes will be more beautiful too!
