Most piano manufacturers recommend that every piano should be tuned at least twice a year to compensate for seasonal changes; however more frequent piano tunings may be required according to the age and condition of the instrument, and fluctuations in temperature and humidity. More frequent piano tunings may also be necessary the more frequently the piano is played.

History behind Hanna Piano Tuning

A. Hanna & Sons Pianos is a family-run Local Piano specialist with a specialist professional team of piano tuners and technicians working both onsite at our piano showroom and workshop in Wimbledon, London as well as travelling to complete tuning and repair services for customers across the local area.

In the workshop, our technicians carry out piano restorations, piano repairs, piano re-polishing, and in the showroom our sales team offer a wide selection of new and restored grand pianos and upright pianos for excellent prices.

Whether playing the piano for pleasure, preparing to become a professional pianist or if you’re already an established artist in the field of music; we can help with all your piano tuning and servicing needs at Hanna Pianos.

A. Hanna & Sons Pianos was founded by A. Hanna in 1960 in Lebanon, however, the business has been based in Wimbledon since 1990.  Chucri & Fadi, the Hanna Brothers, have been surrounded by pianos their whole lives; it is their life long passion. From the age of 5 years old, they learned how to clean the smallest piano parts, and then step-by-step they learnt to repair and restore pianos to the same level as their father and founder of the business, Mr A. Hanna.

After learning their craft of piano repairing, restoration, maintenance and most importantly tuning from their father, Fadi & Chucri studied for three years at LCF in London.  They are both fully qualified in piano tuning, repairs, restoration and piano technology, including how to make pianos from scratch.

The Hanna brothers are extremely proud to head up the professional team of piano tuners & technicians, based out of our Wimbledon Piano showroom and workshop.

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. (Hygrometers and life-saving systems are available from A. Hanna & Sons Pianos)

If a piano is played often and is situated in a country where rain is frequent, we recommend that it be tuned 3-4 times a year. If however a piano is played less frequently and for recreational use only, then 1-2 times a year should be sufficient.

Piano tuning ensures that the piano provides maximum enjoyment for its owners and maintains a high quality sound, as well as ensuring any minor faults or damage to the internal parts can be identified and remedied quickly and efficiently without causing further damage to the piano.
