Piano Tuning

Piano TuningHere at McNally Piano Services we understand how important it is for a piano to sound the best it can sound, which is why we use only certified piano technicians to offer professional piano tuning. It is a well known fact that children who learn to play the piano at an early age are usually developmentally advanced to those that did not. A better memory, stronger verbal recollection and greater hand to eye coordination. Tuning your piano twice a year insures that this experience is enjoyable and that your child is developing a proper 'musical ear'.

Piano tuning is the act of making minute adjustments to the tensions of the strings of a piano to properly align the intervals between their tones so that the instrument is in tune. The meaning of the term in tune in the context of piano tuning is not simply a particular fixed set of pitches. Fine piano tuning requires an assessment of the interaction between notes, which is different for every piano, thus in practice requiring slightly different pitches from any theoretical standard. Pianos are usually tuned to a modified version of the system called equal temperament. In all systems of tuning, every pitch may be derived from its relationship to a chosen fixed pitch, which is usually A440.

The piano is probably the most complex of all musical instruments, with more than 500 working parts in the action alone and a combined tension on its strings of between 15 and 20 tons (that's right--tons). So you can well imagine that tuning it correctly is far more difficult than tuning a clarinet or a cello, and takes a great deal more expertise.
