Tuning is the service you will require most often on your piano. Most manufacturers and technicians recommend that you have your piano tuned at least twice a year (every six months) to maintain accurate pitch and sound as well as tuning stability.

Standard pitch is a tuning based on "middle A" tuned to 440 cycles/second. This international standard is particularly important for "ear training" in order to develop your own sense of proper pitch. This is essential for children learning to play the piano.

If your piano hasn't been tuned for a long time, it may require a pitch adjustment. A pitch adjustment is an initial "rough" tuning to bring the instrument to pitch before a fine-tuning can be performed. In essence, your piano receives two tunings.

The primary reason your piano goes "out of tune" is related to changes in humidity.
