How Often Should You Tune your Piano? It is a popular idea that you need to tune your piano twice in the year. That has become the standard that is required to have a piano playing well. Most piano tutorial or any form of online piano lesson that you might have taken will probably have told you that you need to tune your piano two times every year. However it is now generally believed that a piano needs to be tuned four times in the year that is once during each of the four seasons. Now tuning a piano quarterly might seem like a daunting task but it will be worth it in the long run if you want to have a playing piano in perfect condition. This is because as your piano tutorial must have taught you a piano is basically a stringed instrument and like all other stringed instruments it has a tendency to stray off pitch. (More...)
