Piano Tuner Job Description

The piano tuner tunes the piano so that the piano is in tune with itself and tuned with itself.

Piano tuners tune the piano in a number of ways.

Some piano tuners tune the piano by ear, while others use electronic tuners.

Piano tuners also tune pianos manually, by using a combination of sight and sound, or by using a tuning fork.

Piano tuners typically use a piano correction chart, which is a reference tool that helps a piano tuner adjust the piano.
