One of the most common questions I get is: How often should my piano be tuned? The answer to that question depends on your particular situation. A piano in a performance situation should be tuned before every performance. Most manufacturers recommend that the piano be tuned every six months. A new piano should be tuned three to four times in the first year to let the strings settle in and give the piano a chance to stabilize. The environment a piano is in has a lot to do with the stability of the piano. A comfortable temperature with stable humidity will help the piano stay in tune.
