Pianos are one of the most sophisticated instruments and need to be carefully be serviced & maintained. How often will depend on your particular instrument and how you play. The piano generally needs to be maintained regularly once or twice a year. This can be based on how many hours during the week we play or how many people use it or even the room or location itself. Lots of people stop playing music without knowing why they can’t continue having fun. Obviously there can be very small, small reasons which cause us to stop having a good time to play, but sometimes the TUNING of the piano can be the reason! It’s common to observe that when the piano is out of tune, it causes the person to think that they are not good enough to continue their “musical education.” When a piano sounds bad a beginner or even the whole family might think that they’re not qualified to continue.
But tuning is not the only issue when it comes to piano maintenance. Sometimes a sticky key or a noisy pedal or broken music rack (music book holder) or a broken piano bench can take away from having fun. Imagine driving a car where the brakes are not properly working or the windshield is not function or the lights are not bright enough to show us the road! It’s, common Everywhere. It’s to your advantage to not wait until our piano start sounding bad.
When a piano starts to sound bad, it means that the technician might need several sessions over a period of several months to bring it back into optimal functionality. But if you tune and service your piano regularly, the benefits are that you would have more accurate tone and more stable tuning, and ultimately… more pleasure from your instrument.
