Most piano manufacturers recommend that a piano should be tuned approximately every six months. However, more or less frequent piano tunings may be required depending on various factors. More information on factors affecting the the tune of a piano is available below.

Why does a piano go out of tune?

The piano is a complex instrument with thousands of moving parts. These are affected by changes in temperature, humidity, how often the piano is played and how often it is moved.

Changes in temperature and humidity cause the soundboard to swell and shrink. The soundboard is connected to the piano strings, and this causes the strings to move with the soundboard. Over time, this changes the tension of the strings and makes the piano go out of tune.

These fluctuations can easily be monitored using a hygrometer (temperature and humidity dial), which is simply placed on top of the piano. If the fluctuations are found to be extreme, it may be necessary to install a piano life-saving system. This regulates the humidity level inside the piano and so protects it from excessive damp or dry conditions, therefore prolonging the life of the instrument.

Piano tuning ensures that the piano provides maximum enjoyment for its owners and maintains a high quality sound. If a piano is played often and is situated in a country where rain is frequent, we recommend that it be tuned 3 or even 4 times a year. If however a piano is played less frequently and for recreational use only, then 2 times a year should be sufficient.
