Is piano tuning hard?

Tuning a piano can be difficult if you haven’t done it before and don’t have the correct tools. For example, you’ll need a piano tuning lever, tips, electronic chromatic tuner and mutes. If you don’t have the tools or experience, you might be better off hiring a professional to tune your piano.

Is it worth tuning an old piano?

It may be worth tuning your old piano, especially if it’s highly valued or has sentimental value. Bring your piano to an expert piano tuner. They can assess your instrument and help you determine if it can be restored.

How often should you tune a piano?

Some experts recommend tuning your piano at least two or four times a year, according to the Piano Technicians Guild. You should always see what the manufacturer recommends for your specific piano. And you should schedule additional tunings as needed. 

Can a piano be too old to tune?

Many old pianos can be tuned. Consult a professional piano tuner to find out if they can tune your piano.

Can a piano be tuned after 20 years?

If you haven’t tuned your piano in 20 years, you can still bring it to a tuner for them to assess and perform a pitch raise. 

Why do my piano keys squeak?

If your piano keys are squeaking, it may be because something is stuck between the keys. Or, your piano may be dirty. You may be able to fix your keys. If not, hire a professional to take a look at the problem and perform the repairs.

Should you tip piano tuners?

Tipping piano tuners isn’t customary. If you had a great experience with a piano tuner, you can also show your appreciation by leaving a review on Thumbtack.

What happens if you don't tune a piano?

Tunings can help prevent damage and maintain your piano. When you tune your piano, you’re correcting its pitch. So if you go too long without tuning your piano, the pitch will likely drop — which can add tension to your piano’s structure, according to the Piano Technicians Guild. 

How long does piano tuning take?

Tuning your piano might take a few hours or less. Before your appointment, ask your piano tuner how long the process will take.

Ryan is simply a very skilled, professional piano tuner. Aside from his expertise, he's a lovely person! Along with pitch-perfect tuning, he brought out the voice in my piano and mitigated its brightness. Do yourself (and your piano) a favor, and hire Ryan LeGrand!

Mr. Carrisquillo was very professional, did a great job with my 100 year old piano, was on time, friendly and I would call him again when I need the piano tuned. I was so impressed that I am giving his card to my grandson's music teacher who couldn't give me a recommendation for a piano tuner - so I'm giving her one.

First of all, I wish I was not limited to 5 stars as Rafael's knowledge, ability and work ethic deserve many more! I have an 80 year old Steck baby grand that had not been tuned in more than 2 years because the last person who tuned it said that many pins were loose and tuning would not (and did not) hold. Added to this, a couple of keys buzzed and a few others clicked. One key had "dropped." There were issues with the pedals as another tuner in the past had removed a bolt to fix the sustaining pedal and promised to return with a substitute and never did. The piano was not playable in its existing state and I was given the impression that the entire piano had to be rebuilt--new pin block,new pins,new strings etc --which would cost thousands of dollars and require the piano to be removed from my home. And so my beloved piano became a mere piece of furniture, no longer an instrument to delight in. After not playing for more than 2 years, I decided to search the web for answers, and discovered the thumbtack site when I searched for "piano repair." Tuning Fork NYC was included among the professionals listed. Rafael was only the second person I spoke with. He patiently listened to my litany of issues with my piano, explained how they would be addressed and corrected. I set up an apportionment right then during out conversation, as I was impressed by his knowledge and confidence; I knew that he could help. And I was not wrong. During his first visit, Rafael spent hours with my piano and returned two additional times because such work needs to be done in stages. Rafael did everything we had discussed and even more. Now all of the piano's issues--great and small--have been resolved. My 80 year old baby grand has been renewed and given new life and her sound is absolutely lovely now. Thanks to Rafael's patience and expertise, I finally can enjoy playing once again. I highly recommend this talented professional without reservation.
