Piano tuning is recommended every 6 months in order to keep your instrument in tiptop condition. You will benefit from having a piano that is a joy to play at any time and the confidence in knowing that it will retain its value over time. Tuning always includes inspection for moth, woodworm, the effects of damp, condensation and excessive heat and general wear and tear.
