When to Tune?
Your piano should be tuned at least once a year.

Depending on where you live, the degree of humidity change from season to season, the quality and condition of your piano and how much the piano is played, your piano could need tuning two to four times a year.

The approximately 220 strings in your piano exert about 40,000 pounds of tension on the plate and frame, and about 600 pounds of downbearing on the bridges and soundboard. Moving the piano, seasonal changes in the humidity, as well as the normal continual decrease of static tension, cause all pianos to go out of tune.

Your piano may need repairs, in addition to tuning.
