How long does piano tuning take?

My average time to tune a piano is 1 1/2 hours. I allow 2 hours for an appointment. The extra 1/2 hour is used to deal with additional issues such as an initial pitch raise, sticky notes, squeaking pedals, and other problems that have never been attended to. These are usually things that prompted a customer to call in the first place because the piano was not working properly.

Remember one thing. When you go to a concert at a theatre, notice how instruments are tuned before the concert begins AND slightly adjusted during intermission.

If instruments can go slightly out of tune during this time period, imagine how far out of tune will they be in 6 months.
