Family Children Practicing their piano after the piano tuning
My name is Ross Joyner, and I have been a professional piano tuner, tuning, repairing and rebuilding pianos for over 4 decades.
Piano tuners adjust strings 1 at a time through out each of 220 strings on a piano to bring a piano in to tune (A440). Piano tuning is actually the undertaking of producing fine modifications to the stress of the strings of a piano to appropriately align the intervals between their tones to make certain that the instrument is in tune.

The meaning of the phrase in tune in the context of piano tuning is not only a unique fixed set of pitches. High-grade piano tuning demands an evaluation of the interaction in within notes, which is diverse for every piano, thus in practice requiring slightly diverse pitches from any theoretical standard.For those of you that may be looking for a career, may I suggest that learning to tune pianos is a valued career that has been shrinking in numbers for a few years.

Playing piano after the Piano Tuning by Ross Joyner

I am not one who usually writes testimonials but in the case of Ross Joyner, The Piano Doctor, I am compelled to do so.  I have played the piano since I was a little girl and have had many piano tuners in my day.
I am very particular about how my piano sounds and feels and as a general rule I have to tell the tuners to tune the upper keys a little sharp.  When I said that to Mr. Joyner, he smiled and said that if the piano is tuned correctly, I would not need that.

I have to admit I was very skeptical but allowed him to tune it as he said but in the back of my mind I was thinking that I would have to have him back out in a short time span to re-tune with the upper keys sharp. 
To my amazement, the piano sounded beautiful and stayed that way a long time.  I felt immediately comfortable and safe with him in my house and thoroughly enjoyed my tuning experience with Mr. Joyner.  I cannot say enough good things about how pleased I am with my piano and its sound quality.  Mr. Joyner, you are the best!

Pianos are normally tuned to a modified version of the system called equal temperament. In all methods of tuning, every single pitch may be taken from its relationship to a selected fixed pitch, which is normally A440. Piano tuning is done by a vast range of independent piano tuner/technicians, piano rebuilders, piano store technicians and store piano tuners.

Professional instruction and training courses to tune and repair pianos is readily available from organizations or guilds such as the Piano Technicians Guild.

The definition of the term in tune in the context of piano tuning is not simply a certain fixed set of pitches. Fantastic piano tuning needs an evaluation of the interaction in between notes, which is specific for every piano, thus in practice requiring somewhat different pitches from any theoretical standard.For those of you out in the world that are looking for a career, may I suggest checking out the piano technicians skills for your livelihood. The numbers of great piano tuners has been shrinking for a number of years now. Many of the technicians went to other professions because they believed that the digital piano would take the piano market. This was not the case. People have always wanted acoustic pianos and I believe they always will.
