Pianos that are in the above environments experience more wear and tear and go out of tune more frequently. The performance halls where these pianos are located are larger than in a home and this causes more variation in temperature. Many times these pianos are moved from one place to another causing instability. As a result, these pianos will require more frequent tunings than in a home.
A choir needs the piano to be right at concert pitch so the vocalists don’t strain their voices to match the out of tune piano. This is true for stringed instruments as well that will be accompanying the piano. For example if the piano is too high, (sharp), stringed instruments such as violins and guitars are put under too much tension to stay in tune with the piano. This will cause the strings on the stringed instruments to break.
Service contracts are available to keep these pianos in top playing condition.
My service area includes all of the North Shore of Boston including Cape Anne.
