Piano Tuning

Here in the Atlanta Metro Area, there's no escaping the heat and humidity that can affect your piano's tuning. Weather, plus the normal wear and tear of use or neglect and the laws of physics all conspire to knock your piano out of tune. Depending on the quality and condition of your piano, how frequently you play and where the piano is placed in your home, you may need a piano tuner to perform regular service one to four times a year, sometimes even more frequently depending on your use of your instrument.

A basic piano tuning requires precision work, turning 230 (more or less) tuning pins to just the right pitch in relation to themselves and each other. Tuning a piano requires concentration, advanced training, skill and natural ability. A Piano Technicians Guild, Registered Piano Technician (RPT), such as myself, has proven that knowledge, ability and skills before a committee of three Piano Technicians Guild RPT’s in a series of three written and practical examinations taking place over a total of 9 hours. You can feel confident your piano is in the right hands with your Piano Technicians Guild, Registered Piano Technician (RPT).

However, if your piano hasn't been tuned in several years or it lives in less than ideal conditions, it may need more than a Standard Tuning.
