My brothers and I grew up in a family of musicians and piano tuners. Uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews all over the lower 48 are piano technicians. So I began learning very early about the business and music.
After high school, I realized it was a profession that would keep me close to music. I was also earning income while learning a skilled trade. Then I discovered I was good at it and my interest in piano service grew.
Professional service is the key. New pianos should receive the break in service of 4 tunings the first year. No matter what make or type, all pianos require this service to compensate for the stretching of the new strings.
After the first year, the piano should be tuned at least twice each year. Follow these few, simple directions and you will keep your piano in superb condition and add years of playing satisfaction.
