Caring for Your Piano

Instrument, Owner, and Technician

Together we'll care for your instrument

Your piano is an amazing combination of art and machine. It is capable of producing beautiful music to excite the senses and soothe the soul. It can provide you with a means to accomplish new feats, expand your horizons, and explore your emotions. But, it is a machine -- a very specialized machine made of wood, steel, cast iron, felt, buckskin, and paper.

Just like your car, your piano needs routine maintenance and service. As a piano owner, it is important that you commit to routine service for your instrument so that it keeps its value and lasts for years to come.

NEW PIANOS should be tuned and serviced four times their first year in your home as strings stretch and cloth and felt compact. Your piano will take about a year to settle down. Multiple tunings the first year assures a more stable instrument over time.

After the first year, ALL PIANOS should be tuned and serviced at least TWICE A YEAR, to maintain proper pitch and to fix any minor problems before they become big, expensive problems.

Piano service falls into four major categories: tuning, regulation, voicing, and rebuilding.

TUNING is adjusting the piano strings to the correct tension.

REGULATION is the adjustment of the mechanical aspects of the pianos to compensate for the effects of wear, the compacting and settling of cloth, felt, and buckskin, as well as dimensional changes in wood and wool parts due to changes in humidity.

VOICING is to adjust the tonal quality of the piano for evenness, power, and quality.

Piano technicians also REPAIR and RENOVATE broken, worn, or old action parts.

Some technicians are also REBUILDERS who can REPAIR or REPLICATE major structural parts of the instrument.

As your piano technician, I will provide all these services to keep your instrument in top condition
