often should I tune my piano?
of the amount of time your
piano is in use and because ear
training is such an important
aspect of any musical education, your
piano may require more tunings annually than other pianos.
may also be used to make audition tapes for student scholarship
impeccable intonation is vital for your students to
sound their best.
The variations in the relative humidity
of a studio or home are generally the most important criteria in
determining how often a piano needs to be tuned. Normal homes may
experience fairly drastic changes
from season to season. Your situation
is complicated by constant use which tends to deteriorate a tuning
quickly. A piano functions best under consistent conditions which are
neither too wet nor dry,
optimally at a temperature of 68 degrees
Fahrenheit and 42 percent relative humidity.
You can reduce the severity of these climatic effects by placing
piano in the room so that it is away
from windows or doors which are
opened frequently. Avoid heating and air conditioning vents,
and areas receiving direct sunlight.
While manufacturers' recommendations
on the number of annual tunings vary, they generally agree that a
should be tuned at
two to four times each year, for a brand new piano the first 2 years
twice a year thereafter or as additional
tunings are needed.
