Regular Tuning
Topic: Piano Care

Your piano should be tuned every 6 to 12 months, depending on use.  Neglecting regular tunings may cause the need for pitch raises, an extra expense that may also do damage to the piano.  An out-of-tune piano is a hindrance to the learning process of a child learning to play, and often results in failure.  Compared to what the modern family spends today on internet services, computer upgrades, cable TV, etc., the expense of regular piano tuning is clearly minimal.

Humidity Control
Topic: Piano Care

Minnesota's wide swings in humidity create a very harsh climate for pianos, causing tuning instability, and premature part failure.  Maintaining a constant humidity in your home is essential for the longevity of your piano.  The ideal situation is to have a humidity control system installed inside your piano by your piano technician.

Piano Placement
Topic: Piano Care

Avoid placing a piano in front of a heat vent or where subjected to direct sunlight.  These can be devastating by drying out the soundboard and pinblock causing the wood to shrink and crack causing permanent damage in short order.  In years past it was not a good idea to place your piano on an outside wall because an outside wall is drafty and subject to temperature changes.  This thought is no longer true because modern homes are generally not as drafty as they were 100 years ago.
