We just came across this great story! Itzhak @PerlmanOfficial showed his support for these young musicians.
Piano tuning is not quick, nor are they always convenient. But, they are necessary if you want to keep your instrument in good condition. If you do not keep a piano for musical purposes, consider how value relies on condition, in case you ever decide to sell.
Regular Piano Tunings Can Prevent Serious Damage
Pianos are complex instruments; if one part performs sub-par, the overall quality of the instrument suffers. Bad tuning can be a symptom of another problem, and out-of-tune strings are probably the most annoying indicators that you are in need of an overall tune-up.
Regular piano tuning can also prevent damage. Correct (and constant) string tension is important to the health of many delicate piano parts – parts which are very expensive to fix. Piano tuning help these parts work together smoothly, preventing damage to (and from) neighboring pieces.
Piano Tuners Can Inform You of Problems
Some issues are undetectable by players, so having a qualified professional look inside your piano on a regular basis can prevent small problems from evolving into major damage. But remember: not all piano tuners are piano technicians, and vice versa. If you want your piano looked at in-depth, find a tuner who has been trained to handle piano maintenance.
The More You Tune Your Piano, The Less You Have To
Regular piano tuning help build string “strength.” After a few regular tunings, you’ll notice that the pitch doesn’t stray as easily (or as often) as it did before; however, this does depend on your piano’s condition, as well as your technician’s approach. Ideally, you should have at least four tunings per year.
Regular Piano Tunings Save You Money
If your piano has gone two or more years without a tuning, it might require corrective treatments. Here are two common procedures used to fix severely bad tuning:
- Pitch-Raising is a pre-tuning process that prepares the strings to be tuned. If done incorrectly, this technique can negatively impact the piano’s timbre; sacrifice proper string vibration, and cause a twang or rattle if the strings have interference.
- Double-Tuning is when a general, overall tuning is performed before a fine-tuning. The first tuning is crucial because the tuning process itself can cause weak strings to go out-of-tune; starting off with a fine-tuning would be a tremendous waste of time on severely out-of-tune strings.
