Piano Tuning – How to Tune A Piano Part 1 – Introduction

Welcome to this next video. This video is
going to be an introduction of our new video series. Some videos based on how
to tune a piano. Now, it obviously won’t be a complete course on piano tuning
and repair and everything but it will give you some basics about how to
start the process of tuning the piano and to get you all the way
through to be able to to tune a piano. Whether it be your own piano, or if
you’re just starting out and want to learn how to tune pianos for others,
it will kind of give you the basics and get you to that point where you can go
through the whole piano, and tune the entire thing and get it to a
fairly decent level. This method, we’re not going to go through
all the complete theory and everything about piano tuning, but
we’re going to kind of focus on using an electronic tuning device in order to
tune, because I feel that for a beginning tuner it kind of gets you
started, and can get you to the point of being able to tune a piano, and learn
some of the hammer techniques, and control, and setting the pin, and all
that kind of thing without having to work too much on
training your ear, which you do want to do eventually. Especially if
you’re going to learn to tune for others. But this method that we’re going to be teaching in this series of videos is going to teach
you the basics, and get you up and running so that you can get somewhat
decent tuning that sounds acceptable using an electronic tuning
device. So they’re gonna be several videos. The first is going to
walk you through the tools that are needed
in order to do a basic piano tuning, and you’ll see links in front of you on the
screen to take you to those videos directly. The next video is going to show you how to use an electronic tuning
device. We’re going to talk a little bit about some of the different
electronic tuning devices available. The next video is going to be talking
about hammer. The tuning hammer technique, specifically how you
manipulate the hammer, and get that tuning pin so that it’s set, and how
to move your tuning hammer so that you get the best possible
stability in the tuning pins because if you turn it a certain
way, and just pull on it a little bit, without actually moving the tuning
pin in the block, you’re not going to have a very stable tuning and that’s going
to go out of tune right away. The next video after that is going to be talking
about tuning the mid range, which would be this whole middle section of notes.
What we’re going to start with in that video is
tuning one string for each note in that in this middle section and that’ll
be part of that video. The next video is going to be going through and tuning the
unison, and what that is, is once we’ve tuned one string per note we’re
going to go through and tune the rest of the strings. As you can see, most of
the notes have three strings per note, so if we just do one, then we have to go
back through and tune the other two for each of the notes, and then
finally, we’re going to go through and tune the the bass section and the high
treble section in the last video and by that time you’ll have gotten through the
entire piano and should sound fairly decent if you follow
all the instructions and so forth. It does take a little practice.
Obviously, our series of videos won’t teach you how to be a concert pianist or
concert piano tuner or concert piano technician but we’ll get you
through and if you’ve got an awfully out of tune piano it certainly will sound
better by the time you’re done. Or if you’re just starting out
it’ll get your feet wet in learning how to do some of the basics in
tuning a piano. So those are the things that we’re going to be
covering in this video series. so you can click on the links in the videos

    Great video series. Your voice volume is low, it makes it hard to make out what you are saying.

    Thanks for this VERY GOOD tutorials video serie of basic piano tuning. Very nice job. Very well explained. I feel much more confident now to try to tune my own piano. These is one thing altought that remains unclear for me regarding pianos that are very much out of tune. It seems there is a first step procedure (Pitch raise/Low raise) before proceeding to fine tuning. I guess this is a more advanced and complex procedure but i would be much interested in learning how to do that.

    I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU TO YOU!
    Because depending on how difficult to find a Piano Technique man in my small Town. So yours Videos are truly a great help for me to do fixing my very old piano was made in BERLIN, in the year of 1911. It’s has a named:
    Steinwert , and that means it’s already got 118 years old. But surprisingly it conditions still very good and I love ❤️ it so much. However, I have to fix STICKING PROBLEM IN SOME HIGHER AND LOWER KEYSTONE AS WELL.
    But I don’t know how to do the LUBRICATIONS THINGS and where to find things like powdered or something else.
    Anyway, I am keeping learning more about this on your video with GRATEFUL TO YOU!
