Expert Piano Tuning Across the Kansas City Metro Area
Regular piano tuning protects your piano’s value and extends its life
Every piano manufacturer has particular recommendations for scheduling piano tuning. In addition to manufacturer’s suggestions, how often and under what conditions the piano is played are also factors to keep in mind.
As a general rule, vertical and grand pianos require tuning approximately twice each year at the least. New pianos could be tuned three to four times a year. Pianos used in concert settings or in studios could need tuning a couple of times per week.
Climate also affects how often you should have your piano tuned. Many piano components are wooden and shrink and swell as humidity levels change, which is common in our Kansas City climate.
Intense piano playing in dry winter months puts stress on piano components. Tuning more often could be helpful in preventing damage. Even if your piano is rarely played, regular tuning is recommended to preserve the piano’s value and extend its life.
