How often should a piano be tuned?
A new piano should be tuned four times during its first year. After that, it should be tuned at least twice a year. More frequent tunings will be necessary if atmospheric conditions surrounding the piano are not uniform. Changes in humidity cause the wood to expand and contract, which in turn causes the tension on the strings to change. When tension on the strings changes, the piano goes out of tune.
