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. 

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. 

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. 

Reviews for Glen Cove piano tuning professionals
Thumbtack Customer
I recently had the pleasure of using Mr. Tom Van Ness’s piano tuning and repair services on my grandparent’s old upright piano. I cannot say enough good things about the experience; 5 gold star gold rating and I’d sing his praises from the rooftops if I could sing. I did a lot of research prior to selecting a professional for tuning and repairing the piano as I’m a little leery of strangers and what you can find on the internet. I got a good vibe from what he had to say on his website and the reviews I read and I’m glad I trusted my instincts. He responded immediately to emails, provided me with the courtesy of a confirmation phone call and arrived promptly at our scheduled appointment time. He arrived prepared and immediately put me at ease with his professionalism and unassuming demeanor. Many piano tuners have and air of arrogance, but not Tom, he effortlessly and seamlessly dismantled the piano all the while thoroughly answering my barrage of annoying questions with patience and aplomb. He’s like the type of person that you want at Thanksgiving because he’s led such an interesting life and was such a gentleman to my grandmother and to me, it was reminiscent of old school manners. He was efficient and yet paid so much attention to detail; providing the perfect balance of being personal yet proficient. He obviously takes pride in his work and I guarantee you won’t be disappointed with his services. He gave me an estimate upfront after taking a look at the piano and was more than reasonable with the price and after spending a very long time fine tuning and repairing the piano still didn’t charge me a penny more than most other professionals would have. I feel like he gave me a budget price for first class luxury service. In a world where everyone relies on technology and interpersonal skills are lacking, Tom provides the rare benefit of tuning by ear and his years of experience to provide the best service. Like a classic piano, or beautiful brownstone, they just don’t make people like that anymore. And for the record he didn’t coerce me into saying any nice things about him, he’s too much of a gentleman to even think of something like that, I was just genuinely so impressed with him and his work that I felt deeply compelled to write this recommendation. Anyway, the piano sounds beautiful, better than I ever remember it sounding; understanding what he was given to work with and the amazing price I paid for his services, he may be part magician. He has true heart and genuine talent and is all around a wonderful person and you would be lucky to have him work on your piano. I will definitely be using his services again soon and wouldn’t even fathom looking elsewhere because there is no one better in my opinion.
