Tuning Repertoire

Below is a menu of some of the types of tunings I have available for my clients upon request. I have tried to list the characteristics of each tuning, and how it might be used in the musical literature, so that if you should decide to choose one for your piano, you may do so knowing better what to expect, or knowing better what to request from your piano technician.

There is more than one way to tune a modern piano. In fact, the possibilities are limitless. And yet in this century only one tuning, Standard 20th Century Equal Temperament, has dominated almost all Western music.
