Regular Piano Tuning
This service refers to adjusting the string tension in order to make the piano perfectly in tune with itself, not necessarily at standard concert pitch. If the piano has not been tuned in quite some time (usually 2 years or more), it may require a pitch raise in order to bring it back up to the concert pitch and remain stable.
Approximate time: 1 to 1.5 hours.
Pitch Raise & Piano Tuning
This service is necessary if your piano hasn’t been tuned in quite some time, or if it has been subjected to extreme swings in humidity and /or temperature. If the pitch has drifted one-quarter tone or more from standard pitch, the string tension needs to be stabilized gradually with consecutive tuning (on the same visit) or the tuning will not hold. We have to raise the tension of over 200 strings.
Approximate time: 2 to 2.5 hours.
Why do I need to tune my piano?
An untuned piano does not produce good sounds. It’s very important for beginning students to hear their piano in tune and up to pitch. Even the slightest changes in pitch result in a huge change in string tension, which can lead to all kinds of damage to the piano.
The main reason why a piano goes out of tune is due to changes in humidity from season to season, affecting all pianos, new and old, played and not played.
How often should my piano be serviced?
Regular piano tuning – at least once a year (every 6 months is preferable) will prevent the need for a pitch adjustment in the future. Like many other things, pianos require maintenance. Not raising the pitch will, over time, greatly increase the chance of damage to your piano, causing cracks to your bridges and soundboard.

Just bought a very old Baldwin upright and didn’t know if even the best piano tuner could get her sounding like new. Well, I did find the best piano tuner and within two hours of her diligent work, it sounded like it just came off the showroom floor!
I highly recommend Yosh from Music Teacher LA! In addition to being a miracle worker, she is simply a lovely and charming woman. ~Marnie T., Santa Monica, CA 90403
