Tuning your piano regularly is the first step to having a healthy instrument. Humidity is constantly making subtle changes to your piano, whether you can hear it or not! At the minimum, pianos should be tuned annually to maintain proper pitch. Consistent tunings will enable your piano to sing at its full potential.
There are hundreds of parts inside the piano that are the catalyst between the movement of the key and the production of sound. Depending on the alignment of these parts, your piano can feel heavy or light, bumpy or smooth, stiff or flexible. Regulation should be a normal part of your piano maintenance. If you are not happy with the way your piano feels, it is most likely a regulation problem. Mention it to me when you make an appointment, and I'll do my best to make your piano feel exactly the way you'd prefer.
Hunting for your first piano? Ready to trade in the keyboard? Want to upgrade from an upright piano to a grand piano? Shopping can be a tricky process if you aren't familiar with the piano industry. Give me a call if you don't know where to start. I'm happy to serve as the matchmaker between you and your next instrument. I can also evaluate pianos if you have one picked out already.
