Weymouth Pianos

Piano tuning is an art...

It takes at least 3 years to train and a lifetime of practice. Piano tuners have been around for as long as the first pianos – over 300 years! There is only one way to tune a piano and that is properly! Do be aware of so called tuners who use electronic devices suitable for a 4 or 6 string guitar. A piano usually has over 220 strings! Please also don’t be tempted to get out your car socket set and have a go yourself – you won’t be able to do it and you will seriously damage the tuning pins.

How often...

Some pianos need tuning more frequently than others. It depends on its condition, the environment in which it is located and the musical demands of the owner. A piano used mainly as a piece of furniture will probably only need to be tuned once a year. A piano that is played regularly and is in good condition may get by with being tuned twice a year. A piano given a daily workout by a professional musician or a serious student may need tuning quarterly or even more often.

The piano is among the most versatile of musical instruments, but it is also one of the most complex and delicate, consisting of thousands of precision parts. Even the finest instrument needs proper care and attention to give long life and dependable service.
