Piano Tuning

piano tuning – a tuning hammers on a grand piano

Freehold Music Center has been helping New Jersey keep there pianos in tune since 1959. A piano tuning is properly accomplished when the “A” above middle “C” is tuned to 440 cycles per second (A-440). This is done so a piano sounds in tune with a human voice and other musical instruments.

If a piano has not been tuned regularly it may require additional tunings or a pitch raise at the time of tuning to restore it to it’s proper pitch, If it is needed the technician will inform you at the time of tuning, we do charge an additional fee due to the increase in time.  Sometimes a piano requires a little more than a tuning and our piano technicians will gladly fix any sticking keys, miss aligned dampers, dings or scratches and many other ailments your piano may face.
