Your piano is an investment in your future. It can bring you and your family a lifetime of music, adding immeasurable joy and beauty to your home. As you might expect with any investment of this size, a piano requires periodic servicing to provide good performance year after year. Regular servicing by a qualified technician will preserve your instrument and help you avoid costly repairs in the future.
A typical piano contains over 5,000 moving parts. Because many of these parts are wood and felt, it is subject to change with climatic conditions. Humidity fluctuations cause the soundboard and other parts to swell and contract, affecting tone, pitch and touch. Your piano will perform best under consistent conditions, optimally at a temperature of 68 F and 42 % relative humidity. Often I recommend a humidity control system designed and built specifically for pianos.
While pianos generally fall into vertical and grand model categories, each manufacturer selects its own materials and utilizes its own unique scale and furniture design. Every piano requires a different level of maintenance, depending on the quality of the piano, its surrounding environment, and the level of use. I can provide you with specific service recommendations to provide the best care for your instrument.
