Piano Tuning Cost

The cost of a piano tuning with complete service is worth the investment and I recommend a piano to be tuned twice a year. The enjoyment of playing beautiful piano music year round is the key to creativity. A piano tuner in Kansas City can give you all the musical pleasure that you’ve been dreaming of.

Always use a Registered Piano Technician who is a member of the Piano Technicians Guild and don’t use a beginner. I have passed a series of rigid test to become a certified piano technician and have the special tools needed to service your instrument to give proper maintenance. An experienced piano tuner in Kansas City can give proper advice on how to take care of your piano. Only a Registered Piano Technician is authorized to use the trademarked logo and emblem so be sure your technician is an RPT member of the Piano Technicians Guild.

Certified Piano Tuner

Full piano service consist of piano tuning, repair and maintenance by an experienced Registered Piano Technician.

1. What makes a piano go out of tune?

Pianos can go out of tune whether they are played or not. There are three basic reasons why a piano tuner needs to do a piano tuning. The tuning of acoustic instruments will be affected by their environment. When the humidity and temperature changes the piano will need piano service more frequently than if you lived somewhere that the humidity level stayed the same. Be sure to call a certified piano tuner in Kansas City to service your piano every six months to a year.

2. How often should a piano be tuned?

As a general rule, though normal use, a piano tuner should service your piano every six months to a year. A piano teacher should tune there piano more often so that there students always hear the piano at the correct pitch. Piano repair and additional maintenance may be necessary to restore the pitch and stability of the instrument. Most importantly, the well-maintained piano sounds better, plays better, and gives you and your family a wealth of musical pleasure. Newer pianos may need more service for the first few years than used pianos do. The strings in a newly purchased piano are still stretching quite a bit. Pianos that have been re strung will also need a piano tuning more frequently until the strings have settled in. If not tuned regularly a piano will never give you its full sound potential and can inhibit the development of a musical ear. If neglected for more than a year or two, soundboard movement and string stretch will lower your pianos pitch gradually and cause a tension imbalance. Call a registered piano tuner in Kansas City  when you need service on your valuable instrument.

3. When is the best time of year to tune a piano?

Most home pianos need to be serviced by a qualified piano tuner in Kansas City once or twice each year. A regular piano tuning schedule and a humidity control system will offset these changes. A pitch raise and additional maintenance may be necessary to restore the pitch and stability by a piano technician. Piano repair is adjusting the pedals, and inspecting the piano for repair and adjustments that may be needed or recommended by a certified piano tuner. Understand that a registered piano tuner is held up to stringent international standards set forth by the Piano Technician's Guild. These standards dictate what must be done to preserve the piano as an investment and musical instrument.
