And that means it is the PERFECT time to have your piano tuned!

You clean out your closet, your garage, your kitchen cabinets, and your attic…..but what about your piano? Pianos get VERY dirty on the inside and you should NOT try to clean or vacuum the inside of your piano. This job should only be done by a qualified piano technician due to the delicacy and intricacy of the piano’s tiny parts. Mice, moths, and other critters LOVE the inside of your piano and having it professionally cleaned will get rid of any crumbs or other enticing things these nuisances are after.

One of the most important aspects of piano care is keeping your piano in tune. Changes in temperature and humidity are the number one reason pianos go out of tune. In the winter, there is an extreme lack of humidity, as opposed to the summer where there is an abundance of humidity in the air. Therefore, the best time to tune your piano is during the spring and fall, when there is a happy medium between low and high humidity levels. When you have your piano tuned when humidity levels are average, your piano will be more stable and the tuning will last longer.

And an added bonus…..your technician can check out the piano insides and suggest any maintenance needed to keep repair costs down in the long run!

How do temperature and humidity affect your piano?
After winter, especially with the weather patterns, we have seen in East Tennessee, your piano is used to a really cold and dry environment. Cold weather and lack of humidity cause the wood in the piano to contract, especially the holes in the pinblock, and the stability of the pins in the pinblock are what keep your piano in tune! Now that the weather is getting warmer, the wood inside your piano is expanding due to the rising temperature and humidity. This causes the pins to slip which decreases the tension of the strings, causing a drop in pitch. We want to help you increase the longevity of your beloved musical instrument! Let us keep your piano sounding beautiful by contacting us today to schedule your spring tuning.
