How often should I have my piano tuned and serviced? 


Proper maintenance of an acoustic piano is crucial for preserving its sound quality and longevity. The frequency of tuning and servicing depends on several factors, including climate, piano condition, and usage.

Most piano manufacturers recommend tuning the piano at least twice a year to ensure optimal performance. However, new pianos and those in good condition hold their tune longer, and may require less frequent tuning. Dry or humid climates may require more frequent tuning. It is best to consult a qualified piano technician for specific recommendations.

In addition to tuning, regular servicing of the piano is also essential. Servicing includes cleaning, regulation, and voicing. 

Cleaning involves removing dust and debris from the piano’s interior and exterior. 

Regulation involves adjusting the piano’s mechanical components to ensure that they function optimally. 

Voicing involves adjusting the piano’s hammers to produce the desired tone.

What should I expect? 

The cost of tuning and servicing a piano varies depending on the technician’s skill level and the piano’s condition. 

On average, piano tuning costs between $100-150 and takes 1.5-3 hours. Servicing costs vary depending on the extent of the work required. We have a relationship with highly skilled piano technicians we can recommend to you. 


While it is recommended to tune your piano at least twice a year, the frequency of tuning and servicing depends on several factors. 

Regular maintenance of your piano will ensure that it continues to produce beautiful music for years to come!
