Fun facts about piano tuning.
1. Untuned piano does not produce good sounds.
2. It’s very important for beginning students to hear his or her piano in tune and up to pitch.
3. Even slightest changes in pitch result in a huge change in string tension, which can lead to all kinds of damages to the piano.
4. The main reason why 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. So, now is the best month to tune your piano as our weather has significantly changed from cold, rainy, and gloomy to warm and sunny.
How often should I tune my piano? Every 6 months.
What services does Music Teacher LA offer? We offer a basic piano tuning and a pitch raise services.
What is the Pitch Raise? Pitch Raising is the process of gradually stretching the strings of a badly out-of-tune piano. The Pitch Raise is necessary when a piano has not been tuned for over a year.
Strings should not be stretched more than ten cents (or 20 beats per second) per tuning. This process may require multiple tunings in order to return the piano to Concert Pitch.
Not raising the pitch will, over time, greatly increase the chance of damage to your piano, causing cracks to your bridges and soundboard.
How long will my piano stay in tune once the pitch is raised to the Concert Pitch (A-440)? Anytime the Pitch Raise is necessary the piano will go out of tune sooner than the usual 6-12 months. We recommend retuning your piano within the first three months and every six months after that.
