Piano Tuning FAQ

Unless you are a professional tuner you may find yourself with a few questions regarding piano tuning in NJ and other locations across the United States. Here are a few frequently asked questions that may help you find the answers you are searching for regarding your percussion instrument.

Q. How often should pianos be tuned?
A. It is recommended that most pianos are tuned at least twice a year. You may find that your piano, especially if it is new, may need to be tuned for often throughout the year. New pianos may have sudden drops in pitch due to strings stretching and the wooden parts settling. During the first year a new piano should be tuned three to four times.

Q. What are the benefits of ensuring this percussion instrument is in tune after I move to a new residence?
A. It is a good idea to have your instrument tuned after a move. Moving a piano can cause damage to the strings and may also cause the wood to settle, both of which can affect the piano's pitch. A professional tuner has experience and a trained ear to hear if there are problems with the pitch and workmanship of the piano's interior.

Q. How do I find a professional tuner in my area?
A. The best way to find a professional tuner in your area is to ask for referrals from neighbors, friends, and family. If you don't get any referrals you may try your local phone book, newspaper, or browse options online.

Q. What should I look for when hiring a tuner?
A. Experience, quality service, availability, and price are all things to look for when hiring a tuner. Your instrument is an investment and should be cared for by a professional who has experience and training. Ask those you know for references to ensure you find a tuner you can trust to provide you with all these things.

Q. What happens if I play on a piano that is out of tune?
A. This can put stress on the strings and may cause them damage. An instrument that is out of tune is not as enjoyable to play and can train young ears to hear pitches incorrectly.

Q. What are the benefits of getting my piano tuned regularly?
A. Your percussion instrument will sound its best when properly and regularly tuned. The strings and important parts and pieces will last longer and be more durable as the piano increases in age and use.

Q. How long does it take for it to be tuned?
A. Depending on how far out of tune the instrument is it can be tuned in half an hour to an hour. Unless there are unforeseen problems with the strings it should not take longer than that.

Piano tuning in NJ and other locations may seem complex if you aren't a professional and experienced tuner. These questions may help you find answers you are searching for. If you find yourself with further questions you may choose to contact your local tuner.
