Sounds/activities you can minimize or eliminate to ensure a good piano tuning include:


TV

Radio

Running water

ANYTHING in the kitchen

Lawn mowing

Washing machine

Dryer

Noisy babies/children

Ceiling fans

Talking

Singing

Parties
Yes it's true...we have actually been asked to tune a piano during a party. 

(There is no possible way to assure satisfaction in this situation.)


The bottom line is; the less ambient noise, the better your tuning will be.
