Why tune a piano?
Pianos are both fragile and robust at the same time. They react to changes in temperature and in relative humidity. Our modern environment is not always well-suited to new or older instruments. Pianos go out of tune quickly, unisons move, and pianos become uneven and irritating to play. In general, routine maintainance is carried out after two major types temperature change: Relocating the piano, or when the heating system breaks. To protect the longevity of your piano and to ensure it remains pleasant to play, it must be kept in tune and its tension kept correct through twice-yearly tunings.
