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. 

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.

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.

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. 

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.

Reviews for Cincinnati piano tuning professionals
Emily C.
First, I don't normally leave feedback, but wanted to ensure to highly recommend Stevan for anyone looking to have their piano tuned and serviced. Stevan helped tune our Bergmann (Young Chang series) baby grand piano. I know it's not easy to find a qualified and trustworthy technician / tuner, and I will definitely be using him in the future. He took the time to answer any questions I had, which times past with other tuners did not always feel comfortable asking. He is super personable and knowledgeable, and truly cares about his clients, as well as about bringing the best life to the piano. I was happy to have Stevan explain parts of the tuning process, and any issues he found along the way. He was very open and honest about the entire process. Overall fantastic experience! Highly recommend!
