People often ask me why pianos need tuning regularly...

When a piano is tuned, the strings are adjusted until they are vibrating at the correct pitch. Because pianos are made out of wood, even slight changes in temperature and humidity can affect a piano's performance considerably as the wood absorbs or loses moisture and swells or shrinks. With this swelling and shrinkage, there is inevitably very slight movement in the placement of the strings with the bridges and sounding board of the piano. Even slight movements cause the strings' vibrations to change, which in turn makes the piano go out of tune.
