There are two major reasons for the importance of regular piano tuning:
1) For the benefit of the student who’s learning to play
2) To preserve the life of your piano
This article will discuss the first reason. Whether you are an adult learning to play, or if you have a child who is learning to play the piano, regular tuning of the piano is critical. Scientific research has demonstrated that playing the piano is the most complex neurological activity that a human can perform. In other words, playing piano requires the most complex use of our brain of any known activity. That explains why children who play piano score better on math and language tests, and have more success in multiple areas of their adult lives. Learning to play piano is one of the greatest gifts you could give your child, or yourself. It is not just about playing the piano. It is about developing the brain for greater success in many areas of life. Since pianos are constantly going out of tune, your Wilmington piano tuner can ensure the optimum experience for any student learning to play.
To help encourage a student to learn to play the piano, it is important that she/he get as large a reward as possible as soon as possible. The reward received is in the beauty and self-expression of the music. In order for there to be the greatest amount of beauty, it is important that the piano be in perfect condition. Pianos are constantly going out of tune, so regular piano tuning is the way to achieve this. Your Philadelphia and Delaware piano services provider, DEPianotuner.com, offers piano tuning, piano repairs, piano restoration, piano rebuilding and more.
Pianos are constantly going out of tune because a wooden structure cannot maintain the amount of tension that a piano has (about 30,000 lbs.) for any length of time. For piano concert tunings and recordings, the piano is tuned the day of the performance. For the home, that would be impractical, but every manufacturer recommends that their pianos be tuned minimally twice a year. Pianos go slowly out of tune, so it often is unnoticeable that they are going out of tune. As a result, a student learning to play receives less reward from the beauty of the music and may begin to practice less and gradually lose interest. Your Philadelphia and Delaware piano tuner is here to help remedy the situation.
It is important then, to simply mark your calendar to have the piano tuned every 6 months rather than to wait until it sounds bad to the ear. As your piano tuning Wilmington DE expert (and the surrounding areas) knows, regular piano tuning is the best policy in order to gain the full benefit and enjoyment of your instrument.
