Why do you need to tune your piano?

Whether it is brand new, a family heirloom, or a starter piano for your child, your piano is an
investment that you need to protect with regular service.  Pianos are greatly affected by changes in
humidity, regular tunings will keep your piano sounding and playing its best!  Besides, my two
daughters take lessons and I want them to hear the correct notes as they play!
What I do...

Regular service includes tuning the piano to A440 Concert pitch and periodically, some minor
regulating is needed to keep pianos in top condition.

Tuning - The number of times a piano needs to be tuned depends on changes in humidity, use, and
the quality of the instrument.  Most people have their pianos tuned every six months, if you are a
musician, you probably want to tune your piano more often.

Regulating - Minor adjustments to the insides of your piano (the action) are needed over time as the
wood, felt, and other components in your piano shrink and swell with changes in humidity.

Piano Life Saver System - Your piano is greatly affected by the humidity here in New England.
